I've just tryied to download bases and functions from server. I use russian
locale settings and all seems to be good. Strings are normal and bases and
functions are being saved after closing gretl. The only issue is that when I
download a sub-base (one of banco de Espana) the heading is being marked as
installed but not the exact sub-base. When I close/open the manager all is
good and the proper sub-base is marked as installed and the heading has no

I've found two small bugs with function manager (File - Function files - On
1) When I install function package, the local status changes from "Not
installed" to "Up to date" and it becomes installed locally. But, if I
the manager and open it again, the local status is "Not installed" again.
2) When I use Russian locale this manager doesn't correctly display local
status. I get some readable Russian characters and some "rectangles" instead
of translated string "Not installed" ("Не установлен" in Russian).
Also, I've marked some untranslated strings (see .diff attached)

We're now close to the point of releasing gretl 1.8.0, having
assembled quite a few new features and a lot of bug fixes.
But the most exasperating thing in this business is when you make
a new release and immediately get a report of a serious bug and so
have to make a further release right away.
In this regard, everyone can help. The Windows snapshot, at
and the OS X (Intel) snapshot, at
are both up to date with gretl CVS as of January 12.
If you can find 15 minutes to run your favourite gretl scripts, or
try your favourute gretl GUI operations, then please do, and
report any problems on one or other of the mailing lists.
If any errors come up, we'll fix them tout de suite, then make
gretl 1.8.0 available. Also, if any translators have things they
want to update for the forthcoming release, please do that in the
next day or two. Thanks!
