Feature proposal #3751
Add language specific viewing support in CB
As Joomla 2.5+ supports language specific content, I think its a great idea to add such support in CB also.
E.g., A tab can be published for All languages or a specific language and will be rendered based on the current language of the site.

When implementing this feature, we could also implement it this way:
1) add language to CB substitutions, so they are usable everywhere (This could be a field-type plugin)
2) add possibility to have a visibility condition based on cb substitutions (This could be a conditional-fields-tabs plugin)
Which opens doors to unlimited conditions for tabs. I think, given the not often request of language-specific tabs, this would be much more broad-reaching.

- Target version changed from CB 2.1 to CB 3.0
Don't see how we could do this without a significant rewrite to field and tab queries. I have no idea what this would break in addition to slowing those queries for a vast majority that'd never use this. I'd say it needs to wait for when we rewrite the fieldClass and put it into a new CBLib class instead of extending the already ancient codebase for fields. So it'd need to be done on a major release like 3.0.
For now the workaround can be to use CB Conditional until then.
