Here [1] is a patch to fix typos in LabPlot 2.0.0 messages and enable complete localization through LabPlot2.po file (screenshot [2]).

Thanks in advance for reviewing.

Best regards,

> Hi,

> As next, we plan to move to KDE infrastructure and to become a part of the KDE

> The roadmap, or better to say, a collection of ideas and steps to go in the 
> near feature is the follwing:
> 1. Implement couple of new editing options that we're currently missing (like 
> arrows for axes, rounded rectangulars, shadow effects etc.)
> 2. Finalize axis/scale breaking in the backend and activate it in the 
> frontend.
> 3. Extend zooming features for plots (zoom into the selected rectangular area 
> etc.)
> 4. Implement "plotting a function", a feature available e.g. in labplot1.x and 
> in kmplot.
> 5. Integrate Cantor. As a proof of concept implement the usage of Maximas's 
> lists and arrays as the datasource for xy-curves in LabPlot.
> 6. Improve icons (use svg-versions only?)
> 7. Extend context menus for worksheet objects
> 8. Extend the functionality of our spreadsheet, decide how much we want to 
> implement there, have a look at rkward.
> These and some other topics are collected in our TODO-tracker [4]. There is no 
> concrete order or priority for implementing these points.
