Introduction to the Roadmap

Update: see the latest version of the roadmap

This blog post contains the March 2020 update to our roadmap for Keyman. This roadmap depends very much on the resources available to our team, and it will change over time. It is not a promise to deliver by a date, but rather our best estimate as to where we want to take the project.

 

Older versions of the roadmap:

We’ll aim to update this roadmap periodically – as we adapt to the ever changing software environment and priorities shift accordingly.

Nous avons cherché à installer Keyman 13 sur mon ordinateur Windows 8. 1. Le Keyman s’installe bien mais une fois que nous voulons activer la police convenable Tchad Unicode me permettant la saisie des textes à caractères spéciaux ceci refuse. Quelle la meilleure alternative à entreprendre pour réussir l’installation. J’avais l’ancienne version du Keyman 8 mais par fausse manipulation ceci a été supprimé de ma machine. Nous sommes dans un pays francophone (Tchad), prière nous répondre en français pour une meilleure exploitation des réponses qui nous seront données.
Cordialement.

Do I understand correctly that a user who would want to use a keyboard that I have set up (not yet), would have to install Keyman Desktop? I can see how all the versatility require something more – but are there any thoughts about making native kbd-drivers (perhaps with restrictions) – or would these end up being too restricted?

    Yes, you would need to install Keyman Desktop. The native keyboard drivers, especially on Windows, are very restricted in their functionality. On mobile platforms, you can’t even install native keyboard drivers.

    The beauty of the Keyman solution is you can create the keyboard layout once and use it on almost any device — Windows, mac, iPhone, Android phone and so on. We believe that installing a small app like Keyman to make use of the keyboard is a small price to pay, especially given Keyman is free and open source 🙂
