Sorry, that doesn't get automatically updated with every check-in. I'm  
not sure if there's a mechanism that would do this; currently, I have  
a little "refresh the number" script that I can run, but I don't  
remember to do it for every change.

Mostly from the synctex.c file; that hasn't been updated lately, so if  
the warnings are "new" for you, I'd guess you are using a different  
compiler version or different options in some way.

I've just committed a change that will eliminate the warning in  
TeXDocument.cpp (yes, that was a mistake, although harmless), and also  
updated the revision number.

Right, these are not in TeXworks_??.ts because they're not part of the  
built-in TeXworks interface; they come from the configuration files  
that set up the auto-indent and smart-quotes modes. You could replace  
those config files with your own versions using French names if you  

Currently, there's no mechanism in place to provide multiple-language  
names for these things, so that they would change dynamically when you  
switch languages in Prefs, like the built-in menu items etc.
