This is awesome!

Fat release, thanks!
Btw the webpage still shows 2.10:

Yes, we’re aware of this. The webpage is currently in the process of being updated (what’s new, version numbers, translation, etc). We run an internal copy of the website where we make all changes, and when the page is ready, we publish those changes to the public site. I hope it will be uploaded later today.

Anyway, the final download file has been already updated.
