In this release the language can not be changed. For example when you change to German, nothing happens. Always the English version will be shown. But this is only after the update from version 2.6.3 to 2.6.4.

Does it still exist in the latest version 2.6.5 ?

Could I upgrade the version now ?

It's apparently an adverse side-effect of having tools/update-tx do tx pull; tx pull trashes the translation files, so we didn't, in fact, have any translations to any languages, so it fell back on English. See bug 15207 for details.
