This blog reports on significant Keyman product and keyboard development updates over the period from 3 February 2024 — 15 March 2024. This is a much longer cycle than normal, and we hope to return to our regular 2-weekly posting cycle next week!

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!
