uim-0.4.6 final is released. You can download source tarball via:

  sha1sum:34cfe11c88817a39913d3fc66adb90ec86f75f2c  uim-0.4.6.tar.gz


* 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 --with-qt 
--with-qt-immodule for configure script explicitly if you want to use 

* On AMD64 machines, you should execute autogen.sh instead of configure.

* uim-prime sometimes make PRIME out of control. This seems a very
nasty bug of uim. If you are using uim-prime as your main input method,
you should keep the version your uim (Or if you have enough
time, you can challenge newer uim-prime. Hiroyuki Komatsu wrote new uim-
prime for new PRIME. See
for more details.)

* Some features on switcher are broken. You should always choose
"Change whole desktop" for now.

* Because 0.4.6 final have some bugs as described above, we'll provide
0.4.7 as a bug fix release.
