Thank you, Fabrice, Benny Situ and EE team!
"Thanks" feature is still being translated so I could not check it properly
in my tests. But I was trying to check whether gender variations will
apply. If we say "this user has thanked you", no variation would apply. But
if we use "thank you", then it does: Obrigado (for male) and Obrigada (for
female), being the variation applied for the gender of the user who is
thanking (and not the one being thanked).
In the translation tool, I didn't find where/how to provide the 2 options.

I'm happy to announce that we just released Notifications on our first
non-english Wikipedias today!
The Echo extension is now deployed on the French, Hungarian, Polish,
Portuguese and Swedish Wikipedias, where users seem to be enjoying some of
the tool's new features, such as the Mention and Thanks notifications.
Our next major deployment to another half-dozen non-English
Wikipedias will take place on Sep. 17, as outlined in this proposed Echo
We're delighted to bring these new features to a broader community and
would like to take this opportunity to thank all the folks who made this
First off, kudos to Benny Situ for his fine development work on this final
leg of the Notifications project, as well as Erik Benhardson, Matthias
Mullie and Dario Taraborelli for their invaluable support. Next, my deepest
appreciation to our Community team for their gracious advice and help in
orchestrating this multi-site release: Philippe Beaudette, Maggie
Dennis, Jan Eissfeld, Sherry Snyder, Keegan Peterzell, Patrick Earley
and Anna Koval.
Last but not least, we are very grateful to our community champions for
each language, including: Benoît Evellin, Cantons de l'Est, Nou Nouill,
Tisza Gergő, Tamas Meszoly, Bartosz Dziewoński, Tar Lócesilion, Oona

Thank you all for going out of your way to bring notifications to these
communities. It has been a pleasure and an honor to work with each of you,
and I look forward to more collaborations in the future.
Please let us know if you have any questions about this new release. Enjoy
the new features!
