+Transifex 1.0 (Proteus), Alpha version
+Welcome to Transifex 1.0, codenamed Proteus_.

+targeted for new installations of Transifex and parties willing to upgrade to
+a new major version to take advantage of new features.

+since its original release. This release got something like a 'heart transplant':
+a brand-new core storage engine was introduced, capable of much more than the
+file-based previous one.
+ '''Transifex 1.0-alpha''' is a development preview of Transifex 1.0 and is
+ intended for testing purposes only. Production sites should wait for the final
+ release or at least 1.0-beta.
