This blog reports on significant Keyman product and keyboard development updates over the two week period from 20 January 2024 — 2 February 2024.

As always, you can follow all of our development online at github.com/keymanapp/keyman, and you may find the Keyman Development Status Site at status.keyman.com both interesting and slightly overwhelming!

Keyman minor releases

Keyman 16.0.145 stable was released in this cycle. It includes some minor maintenance updates, and the following important changes:

  • FirstVoices Keyboards: Updated Hul̓q̓umin̓um̓ and Kwadacha Tsek’ene keyboards (#10285)

Significant updates in these versions include:
