Hi all,

Since more and more people start looking into gnumed on multiple platforms and 
first report about daily usage are coming in I took the time to fix a few 
important things in the windows installer.

Actually the real reason is that I am starting to produce some introductory 
video on installing and using gnumed on multiple platform and multiple 

One issues that has bothered me for a long time has been missing language 
support on GNUmed in Windows. For a long time I thought this is hard to fix.

Actually it worked right out the box. While it works fully transparent on 
GNU/Linux /autodetection) a command line switch has been introdced for MS 

start GNUmed with : '--lang-gettetx=de' and you will get a German gui.

Two things were missing. The GNUmed *.mo files have not been created and 
installed properly. This is fixed as of release (MS Windows) and 
will appear in 0.2.6 by default.

Second issues has been to detect (default) language of the user's Windows 
environment so users don't need to fiddle with any command line switched 

As of now I have added support for this to the installer. When the chosen 
language is not available ( and supported by the installer) it will default 
to Englisch.

gm_0.2 conf has been renamed to gnumed.conf to avoid potentially frustrating 
update sessions.

Have fun. Now off to creating videos. I will start with German videos as this 
seems to be the most vocal audience right now despite the fact that many more 
people understand English.
