Hello,

Very nice.

The first test I did was with Ubuntu and it works very well.

Some remarks :
- Missing translation in my language (French)
- I notice that the progress bar of the installation fills quickly but we have to wait a long long time again before the tool announces that he has finished and during this time, we don't know if everything goes correctly.

French announce here http://forum.rosalab.ru/en/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=2142

Thanks a lot.
It's a very useful tool, installing from usb is very faster than using dvd and for netbook is the simplest way.
Using "dd" command was not so easy for normal users, now is really simple making a bootable usb.

Very well, if there's anybody willing to translate it to French, please register at https://www.transifex.com and pass me your data to add francophone team coordinator. We have ROSA community translation resource there at https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/rosa_comm_transl/ . Meanwhile I'll add Français to the languages there. :)

There is one thing that came up recently that should be mentioned here: it turned out that there are lots of hardcoded messages in Qt5 that cannot be translated. Such as "Yes"-"No" some inside service headers etc. These things will remain English forewer, not French, Russian etc. But the Imagewriter interface itself will be lokalized.
I think I'll dig more deeply onto this Qt5 peculiarity since there will be more and more Qt5 application to translate and this issue is real nonsense. Have to discuss in between lokalization teams.

I'm terribly sorry but the Imagewriter developer is on the vacation right now (for the next two weeks approx). The moment he's back we'll up this theme and we shall need more detailed info from you, I think. :)
