And now I received a Japanese language pack. This time our thanks go out to Mitsuhiro Yoshida of mitstek.com. In order for search to work properly in current versions of PunBB, a small change has to be made to one of the scripts. Instead of posting it here, I wrote it down in a topic in the forums. You can find it here.
It's weird how language packs have a tendency to end up in my inbox two at a time. It seems almost every time I post one of these news bits, I've already done one similar earlier that day or the day before. Oh well, the world is a strange place.
