uim-0.4.6alpha1 was released. You can download source tarball via:

  sha1sum:067348e043698cacce371d0dc9ee4be87acbdb71  uim-0.4.6alpha1.tar.gz


* This is alpha release, is not tested, doesn't satisfy all of 0.4.6's 
release requirements. We provide this release only for developers and 
plucked testers.

* You can't use GTK_IM_MODULE=uim-xxxx. You should use GTK_IM_MODULE=uim
instead. Default input method is determined from current locale.
 If you want to specify default input method, use uim-pref-gtk or 
uim-pref-qt. (uim-pref-qt is exmerimental though.)

* You can't use XMODIFIERS=@im=uim-xxxx. You should use XMODIFIERS=@im=uim

* UimQt/uim-kdehelper is off by default. You should give --enable-qt 
--enable-qt-immodule for configure script if you want to use them.

* Currently build system is broken. 'make releasetest' wouldn't work
 at all.

Changes between 0.4.5 to 0.4.6alpha1

There're too many things to describe here. Following list is incomplete.

* uim-pref-gtk (new!)
 - Preference tool

* UimQt (merged from sub project)
 - You need to apply 'immodule for Qt' patch to use this.

* uim-kdehelper (merged from sub project)
 - uim-candwin-qt, uim-pref-qt, uim-toolbar-qt.

* uim-skk
 - Many features are added.

* libuim
 - Plugin system is introduced. This will reduce both of memory
 consumption and application start up time.

And many many many bug fixes! (and may a few enbugs...)
