The following features for Sparrowhawk are included in this CTP 12 preview:
Improved Language Handling of the Website
Now you can translate blocks and their folders in the same way as for pages with the option Show All Languages for the shared blocks gadget. This option will show blocks and folders for all languages. Not translated blocks have a language code representing the fallback language, and when this is turned off only blocks and folders that are available for the current language will be shown.
The flow of language handling has also been improved with a new option under the view settings.
Upgraded TinyMCE Editor
Sparrowhawk has been upgraded to the latest version of TinyMCE (3.5.8) to get the latest features such as HTML 5 support and non-content editable areas.
