Key Features of LameXP 4.0:

- Support for multiple platforms (Windows, Linux, MacOS X) will be possible.
- Creating new LameXP translations will be much easier for contributors thanks to the Qt Linguist tool.
 Note: This is an early technology preview that doesn't do much yet, but you can test the Unicode support already.
