As the last discussion on this has been closed due to inactivity (it seems a little over-zealous at times...), I'd like to remind the team that this still isn't fixed.
Specifically, I can't read the release blog post of 7.2.0 because I currently live in France and the site refuses to change from French to English, even when I manually change the setting in that dropdown at the bottom of the page.
I realized finally that the settings in my Chrome user account had French above English in its order of importance - hence the Accept-Language header was sending "fr,en" instead of "en,fr", which I changed and now - and now I'm able to actually change the language to English without issue.
BUT - manually changing the setting on the page actually does nothing if the site still only looks at your accept-language header anyway. Before changing my user settings, there was no way for me to read the blog in English.
