What was done on the G11n side:
Simple: we tested everything ! Most of the products had a few UI changes like Instant Messaging 8 or Messaging Server 7 Update 3, so we did only the necessary testing there. One thing we really focused one: Sun Convergence 1 Update 3 ! This product was really tested deeply, focusing on the new functionalities, checking if our existing translations did not cause problem with the new UI design, etc... So on top of enjoying this new Sun Java Communications Suite 7 release, enjoy it localized !
