All Orion client side strings are externalized to support translation. Orion has been tested in various locales and critical translation bugs have been addressed. Server side strings are not externalized or translatable, and in some error situations these messages may appear in the client user interface, but we address these bugs as they are reported.
This release addresses a long standing usability complaint from users that they would like to be able to see multiple source files at once.
