This is good news.

You are right, it is very hard to maintain a coherency over time. What
kind of difference do you find, maybe its time to make some cleanup.
Yes, it is not mandatory to have all the voices with some exceptions, if
you record the colors, the numbers of the alphabet, you must provide the
full set because the activity execution will be inconsistent and
unplayable. Other than that, GCompris plays what it find and don't
complain if a voice is not there.

Hum, I am not sure either if this is correct english.
I like Chester suggestion :"Click on the small valves to raise or lower,
the water level."
You can fix the wiki if you want and have a login on it.

Yes, nobody formally requested me a delay. Many translations have been
updated. I think I will make this release anyway rather soon than later
because there are many bugs being fixed in this release. It is sad to
continue to let people download a so huge software just to find out that
is is not playable because there is no cursor :/. Also I would like to
have it pushed in the next Ubuntu and not miss their deadlines.
