It seems like the Python QGIS Plugin installer has problems displaying UTF-8 characters.

As an example I am using german umlauts in the plugin description which is not displayed correctly.

Tested on Ubuntu 8.10 (current SVN trunk) and Win2K with QGIS 1.0 Preview2

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

It's correct behaviour, just remember to use unicode strings (u'foo') in init.py methods. Note also that QGIS < 4c5e4838 (SVN r9664) didn't support unicode plugin metadata.
