GNU Typist 2.9 released

Item posted by Tim Marston <edam> on Mon 31 Oct 2011 11:14:16 PM UTC.

This release contains several new features, the most important of which is surely full UTF-8 support. Most GNU/Linux distributions now come with terminals set to use UTF-8. This should fix the configuration problems that non-US-ASCII users have been having.

This release also includes new lessons for the Colemak keyboard layout (more info about Colemak available at http://colemak.com/), the facility to track your personal best typing scores and several new translations.

Changes in 2.9:
- Full UTF-8 support, by Felix Natter <fnatter@gmx.net>
- New Colemak typing lessons, by Tim Marston <edam@waxworlds.org>
- Many new international lessons imported from KTouch 1.6 and update of the German tipptrainer 0.6.0 lesson
- New Spanish manual from smc <smc@manticore.es>
- Tracking of personal best scores, by Tim Marston <edam@waxworlds.org>
- New Polish translation, by Jakub Bogusz <qboosh@pld-linux.org>
- New Turkish translation, by Gökçen Eraslan <gokcen@pardus.org.tr>
- We are dropping support for the DJGPP compiler (DOS), although the MinGW GCC compiler is still supported.
