Ekushey.Org is working with Mozilla Foundation from a long time. Due to some problems with Bangla Language script support Ekushey could not make any release of Mozilla products.
But later Jamil Ahmed from Ankur raised his hands and find some hacked ways of Bangla translation of Mozilla products. So in the release sequel this is the second part.
More information about this can be found from here.
We changed the look and feel of the web site. The old site was 3.5 years old :)
The core site was designed by Dr. Robin Upton on 25 September 2001. Later Omi Azad joined Altruists International as web developer but didnâ€™t changed the look of the old site because it was easy to manage.
But the cyber whole world is changing itâ€™s look and feel and Ekushey members decided to change Ekushey.Orgâ€™s look also. So this is the site in front of youâ€¦.
All Layouts are now compiled with Bengali Locale. Current users will not face any change or no need to update their layouts. Upcoming Windows Vista users will need this, because Windows Vista will respect Bangla Locale.
When the layout managers ware made, there was no support for Bangla locale in .Net Framework. So the layouts ware compiled with Sanskrit locale.
Windows XP/2000/2003 (any version) users cannot feel the changes, but this had to be done for upcoming Windows Vista users, else they may face problem installing and using the layout managers.
Next time Ekushey will release separate installers for Bangladeshi and Indian users. Bengali Speaking people people staying rest of the world can use anyone of their choice.

Ekushey team members successfully completed Google main site translated. Omi Azad one of the founder of Ekushey did all the reviews of the translation and requested Google Translation engineers to make this live. On a reply Google Translation engineer said it may take one more week to become public.
Google site (http://www.google.com.bd http://www.google.co.in/bn or http://www.google.com/intl/bn/) was in Bangla already, but not in Bangla script. People used Latin (English) script for Bangla display.
Ekushey members Changed all that and the site should appear in 100% Bangla after Google makes the translation Live. Ekushey members also wants to thank those who took part before in Google Bengali Translation and did the translation with Latin script. The Latin script translation helped the translator a lot and made the job faster.
