Following features are highlight of this release. See NEWS for all
- All X11 Compose key sequences and user defined one in ~/.XCompose
are available in gtk+ and Qt bridge.
- Input-mode and some of the key definition of Japanese
multi-segment IM have been reorganized. See "Notes for Anthy,
Canna, and Mana Users" section.
Notes for Anthy, Canna and Mana Users
Now input-mode is reorganized to distinguish on/off state logically.
See figure below about input-mode on Anthy for example.
+- ja_hiragana <--+ -+
anthy-on-key | | |
| ja_katakana <--+ |<--+
--> | | |
ja_direct | ja_halfwidth_katakana -+ | anthy-alkana-toggle-key
<-- | |
| ja_halfwidth_alnum -+ |
anthy-off-key | |<--+
+- ja_fullwidth_alnum -+
Users of these IM need to update per-user config with uim-pref. Here
is the list which is needed to be reconfigured.
- Key definitions
- off key
- convert to halfwidth alphanumeric key
- convert to fullwidth alphanumeric key
- convert to halfwidth katakana key
- halfwidth katakana mode key
- Input mode menu items in Toolbar
- Re-enable Halfwidth Katakana, Halfwidth Alphanumeric, Fullwidth
Note that "C-j" combination in off key is removed by default, so make
sure to update user config if "C-j" is used as a off key for daily use
(especially uim-fep user). Also users who customized off key
previously should update the config just after upgrade to 1.2.0.
Note about inputting white space
- If one set 'ja-direct-rule in ~/.uim to customize the type of
white space (full-width or half-width) with Japanese mode is on,
please remove the setting. In uim 1.2.0, the type of white space
is defined in 'ja-space. See comment in japanese.scm.
- uim 1.3.0
Release for internal improvement. No user-visible changes other
than resource consumption reduction.
The non-standard-conformant Scheme interpreter of libuim will be
replaced with newly developed SigScheme to make a room for next
- uim 1.4.0
Release for internal simplification. No user-visible changes.
The complicated C part of uim which prevents extensions, design
improvements and automated input method tests will be turned into
Scheme codes or optimized out.
- uim 1.5.0 and later
The time for drastic reconstruction. Many user-visible changes.
The bridge and IM interface will be revised for better focus and
reset handlings, and the composer framework will be introduced for
extensible IM development.
Thanks to all who tested and reported the bug, including:
AWASHIRO Ikuya, KIHARA Hideto, Tomohisa Irino, Jan Willem Stumpel.
