Only for latest. The tested version is 100% German always (due to many
authors and the admin being Germans :-). For other languages the
situation is not as good, but there are less users for these as well.

Mid-January is fine, as this should also be the planned date for next
tested (althought as always we wont hold our timeline).
Most new texts are error messages (which wont bother you) and the new
changeset handling. I did an update today and we have 227 missing strings
I will give the translations some more work the next days.
If you have special wishes tell them or add texts yourself. I will
increase update frequency Launchpad->SVN next time as I always do
prior to tested releases.

The problem is that I only have stats of installed plugins, no real usage
stats. But I find editgpx useful to remove the "scatter" around start and
stop of tracks. This also helps a bit to anonymize tracks (as for tracks
starting at my house it's easy to find who made them).
On the other hand I do not upload GPX tracks at all for a long time now,
so probably my opinion is not representative.
