Assamese or Telugu.
According to opensource.com, these 12 languages are the largest number of new languages added in a single Fennec release, so Hindi community decided to celebrate with a small organized event to thank all the hard work made by the open source community. Mahesh Kulkarni, an important person in the language industry in India participated at the event by sharing his experience and discussing about the challenges of localization.
