If you have a question that is not answered below, search for your question here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/quelea-discuss. If you cannot find any information about your question there already, feel free to ask a new question.

Can I translate Quelea to [...]?

Yes, that would be terrific! Download this file: https://sourceforge.net/p/quelea/source/ci/default/tree/Quelea/languages/gb.lang?format=raw and open it in a notepad or word processor and translate everything after the equals sign (=), i.e. to the right, and leave anything before it, i.e. to the left. If you see special character combinations like “\n”, “%” or “$1”, make sure to let them also be a part of the translation. If you have any questions regarding the translation, feel free to ask them in the Quelea forum.

What is a nightly release?

A nightly release is a version that is not yet beta tested – in other words: the latest release although potentially buggy. This might contain experimental features and could potentially be less stable, but apart from occasional bugs, most of the times they work as well as a stable release. However, you are not advised to use a nightly release in a live setting where no issues can be tolerated. If you would like to try the latest nightly release, download it here: https://quelea.org/nightly/job/Quelea/ws/Quelea/dist/standalone/ To be able to use the nightly release, you must make sure that Java (JRE) is installed. You can download it here: http://java.com/en/download/index.jsp

When will the next stable release be available?

This highly depends on development activity and and critical bugs that come to light. We usually release a couple of versions a year, but that number will vary depending on how much there is to release! If you really need a better estimate, ask on the mailing list.

Sourceforge is down, help!

Sorry, Sourceforge is entirely outside of our control. It tends to go down very rarely, but if this becomes a bigger issue we'll look at hosting elsewhere.

Will you add (x) feature?

There are many planned features on the to-do list, but feel free to let the developers know what features you miss, since features are added by popular demand. Visit the page https://quelea.org/feedback/ to see planned features and vote for the features you want to see or discuss them in the discussion forum. Some of the planed features include:

  • Theme improvements
  • Initial install wizard
  • Show first line of next slide on stage view
  • Transition between slides
  • The option to store notices

How do I report a bug/error?

Start by reproducing the error and then close Quelea. This will update the debug log. Secondly, locate the debug log. Go to Help and About, there you will find a link to the debug log. If you click it, the debug log will open in your default text editor. Save a copy of the file somewhere you know where it is so that you easily can attach it later on. Next, go to the discussion group (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/quelea-discuss) and see if anyone else already has reported the same thing. Lastly, if you cannot find a thread containing your question, start a new question, describe the problem and attach the debug log.

If I donate money, will Quelea be developed faster?

I am afraid that the development of Quelea rather is determined by time than by money. Quelea is developed by a few persons in their spare time and that amount of time unfortunately cannot be changed by donations.

Where can I find free resources for Quelea?

If you visit http://quelea.org/resources/ you will find a few links to some free resources.
