I hope I'm not to late. I fear something is a little sick here. I created a theme and this is what was saved:

"Marble(Blue)" -ubt true -lbtf "/Applications/Chess/Xboard/XBoard.app/Contents/Resources/share/xboard/themes/textures/Transparent/stone-marble2-texture.png" -dbtf "/Applications/Chess/Xboard/XBoard.app/Contents/Resources/share/xboard/themes/textures/Transparent/stone-marble1-texture.png" -lbtm 1 -dbtm 1 -lsc #cbdce1 -dsc #1b6883 -ub false -upf false -pid "/Applications/Chess/Xboard/XBoard.app/Contents/Resources/share/xboard/themes/Habsburg" -trueColors false -wpc #ededed -bpc #000000 -hsc #fff826 -phc #FF0

Only when I select this theme, xboard crashes to desktop with:

xboard-bin: Unrecognized argument -p

Clearly something is odd with the way the line is interpreted or saved. the -p came from the partial -phc value. But even then should xboard CDT in this manner with no error outside of the terminal?

I think it would be better to just release 4.9.0. We could go on forever making dev-releases, and by the time all translations got we would likely already have added new strings
that need to be translated.

So let's just release what we have, and when we received all .po files pertaining to it, we just release a 4.9.1 with those. We might have bug-reports and fixes in the mean time as well, so it is never a bad idea to have an x.y.1 release shortly after the x.y.0 release. We could even adopt that as a policy for future releases. String freezes are just not practical; it is always better to have an item with an untranslated name in the UI than not having the item at all. Or postponing the release, leaving people with unfixed bugs in the previous
