Sorry about the incorrect URL. The correct one is

Me neither, have to ask someone who's currently on vacation why so many 
useful features are suppressed. They're all there, just hidden. I guess 
that it was an attempt to reduce the server CPU load, which should be 
far less of an issue since the migration.

I guess that's the previous (incomplete) translation. Jean-Phillipe's 
new translation is for VirtualBox trunk, so has already some content 
which doesn't apply to 4.2.x.

Really looking forward to having the French manual as part of the next 
major release, and once we streamlined the processes more I hope it's 
actually possible without significant further effort to "backport" the 
translation to 4.2.x.

We're appreciating every contribution which improves VirtualBox and 
provides value to its users, from translating the GUI or manual to 
providing well-done packages.
