(Weekly) Incubator Update: Tracking Progress from June 26th to July 6th
Hungarian goes beta!
The course for Hungarian for English speakers is now in its beta phase! Congratulations to the course team and to Team Duolingo for taking another step towards free language education to the world!
Two courses graduate from beta
1. Welsh for English
2. German for Turkish
These courses have graduated from beta. Congratulations to all involved for their hard work - the course teams, team Duolingo, and to all the Duolingoers who have helped by providing their suggestions, reports, etc.

Here's what the contributing teams have said during the last week:
(For Phase-1 and Phase-2 courses by default, and for Phase-3 courses per request).
Well, the wait is over. The long awaited Hungarian course has gone to Beta. So, please start testing it, send us many feedback, that we will fix as soon as we can, and hopefully, in a month's time we will graduate from beta.
Course graduates from beta.
After six months of hard work by the team the course has today graduated from beta.
Perfect timing for those of us interested in sport, with the astonishing football success occurring only a few hours ago.
1080 words, 54%.

Saluton! Falta un pequeño pedacito ínfimo por parte de la Akademio, esperamos que sea en cualquier momento. Mientras tanto pulimos algunas cosas que estaban bastante confusas o que faltaban. Lamento tener que patear la fecha para adelante, pero me gusta el 24 ;)

Hungarian is now available in beta! Non-weekly frequency for the Weekly Incubator Updates continues...
Previous Update 19-Jun to 26-Jun
My summer travel will yet again force slight changes to the WIU schedule for the next week or two.
Does this mean "Hungarian is here, it is a dream!"? If it is, then consider that a triumph for the Hungarian team. (If not, all errors are mine alone ;))
My only issue at the moment is two languages I really want to do coming out so close together. My poor brain is struggling to cope with them both at the same time. But... it's a fun problem to have!
Assuming that Guaraní has actually been at 100% this whole time (I know we have no reason to assume that it has been, but we also have no reason to assume it hasn't been, what with absolutely 0 updates from the team, but steady progress from 0 to 100) is there any reason to assume that it will definitely come out before, say, other Spanish courses? I mean, I know that the teams are entirely independent from one another, but it would be nice to hope that if EO for ES is estimated to come out July 24, that Guaraní for ES might come out before then.
I mean, I understand the responses to all the complaints people have about courses taking a long time. In one sense, I don't care if it takes Guaraní another year (though I sure hope not), but my soul is dying with the complete lack of updates. 0n0
They've done around 1850 words, we in the Esperanto for Spanish course have 1917 words. Considering Esperanto is much easier and most courses have 2000 words at least, I believe they aren't finished.
As Guaraní is a new language in Duolingo, I read that they will have to record the voice or ask for someone to do it, so probably finding someone might take some time.
true, and fair. Thank you, by the way. The whole "1850 words" thing is the only update I've seen anywhere. Presumably the voice recording is what would have been happening all this time since they "hit 100%" but, of course like you say, that 100% number probably isn't accurate.
I'll point out that I am aware of how that number is calculated, and thus how it can be not truly representative of the progress. I was just hoping it was, since it did progress gradually all the way up, instead of getting huge bumps. Alas. Voy a seguir esperando anhelosamente.
Finished courses A) are not necessarily complete, as if some revamping or expansion of the course is planned this will not be reflected in the 100% estimate; B) may require other, non-word-or-lesson-construction materials to be provided, such as finding a TTS program to use, or recording all sentences by an actor when no suitable TTS can be found; and C) always require some work from the Duolingo corporate team to release, and they have a lot of other things on their plate. Generally, 100% finished courses are moved to Phase 2 at a rate of one a month or so.
CHEERS for Hungarian :DD
