the server  * A new contact form for translators to contact administrators  *
When assigning permissions, users are grouped by their interests  * Row
highlighting to help in several administrative tasks  * Captcha support to
combat spam  * Several new [commands for batch command-line
administration](http://translate.sourceforge.net/wiki/pootle/commands)  * News

allowing even better delegation  * New project languages are initialised from
templates if nothing is present on the file system  * A new field for the
project's source language simplify some management and allows new features
Notes for server administrators  -------------------------------  * Pootle no
longer depends on statsdb and SQLite  * Files on disk are only synced with the
database on download or commit. The old behaviour can be restored at the cost of
performance.  A manage.py command can sync to files on the command line.  * The
database is now much larger. This should have no negative impact on performance,
but we strongly suggest using MySQL or PostgreSQL for the best performance.  *
Pootle 2.1 will upgrade the database automatically from Pootle 2.0 installations
(the upgrade could take some time, depending on your installation)  * Pending
files are not used for suggestions any more, and will also be migrated to the
database during upgrade.  * New settings are available in localsettings.py -
compare your existing one to the new one  * Pootle 1 installations can easily
migrate everything excluding project permissions. We encourage administrators to
configure permissions with the new permission system which is much simpler to
use, since permissions on the language and project level are now supported.

look at the [optimisation
guide](http://translate.sourceforge.net/wiki/pootle/optimisation) to ensure your
Pootle runs well.
