Foxmarks 0.53

Today we released Foxmarks 0.53 (upgrade instructions here), a release that includes a number of fixes and improvements. It also takes an important first step in the direction of Internationalization, as all strings have been removed from XUL files (which implement the UI for the Settings Dialog and the Setup Wizard). Thanks to user Premier, we also have our first localization, for Japanese. There's still a fair amount of work to do to enable the localization of various alerts and error messages -- which we hope to include in 0.54 or 0.55 -- but we're excited about Foxmarks being able to speak to users in their native tongues.

Those of you who responded via email to my earlier post asking for volunteers to help in localization will get an email from me when we've completed the remaining internationalization work. Thanks for your offer to help.
