String freeze for 0.9.25

Frozen hog! Hello, hedgewarriors!

The next release (version 0.9.25) is moving closer. And closer … Smile

And we have gotten to a point in developent, the “string freeze”, where we will not change any of the translatable text strings until the next release.

This means we need people to translate those texts into various languages so that people around the world can enjoy Hedgewars in their preferred language!

Our translation system sadly is still a bit complicated, but there's a guide for new translators for that.

As this can be a daunting task, we strongly recommend translators (and those who want to be) to talk to as in the chatroom, this will make things go much smooother. Chatroom: https://hedgewars.org/chat

Of course, every translator will be credited.

In other news, the next version will have a few new taunts as well. Expect your hogs to be amazed by great shots, scared of grenade, swearing at their own stupidity, and more.
