*Keymap.sbar 20.5*
A nifty keymap switcher for the screen titlebar.


Introduction
------------

Keymap.sbar is a plugin for the screen titlebar and allows comfortable
switching between multiple keymaps without having to open MorphOS'
System Preferences each time.

Features
--------

o Support for MorphOS and legacy (AmigaOS 3.1) keymaps

o A configurable keymap selection

o Beautiful hand-pixeled images in two sizes (automatically chosen
depending on screen titlebar height) for each known MorphOS and legacy keymap

o Hotkeys for opening the quick selection menu and for cycling between
activated keymaps

o Quick launching of Keystroke for character overview and selection

o Fully localized.

Requirements
------------

o MorphOS 2.1 or better

o 200 KB free hard disk space

Changes
-------

Following a brief list of all changes since the first public
beta release (version 20.3).

o Fixed two NULL reads which could occour if Keyboard.conf didn't
existed (thanks to Nicolas Sallin for spotting)

o Defer keymap scanning; do it on demand rather than init (avoids
triggering a random bug/ race issue in certain versions of IPrefs
when Keymap.sbar is enabled at boot time already)

o Do not load config two times on init.

o Added a configurable hotkey to trigger opening of menu

o Added a configurable hotkey to cycle between active keymaps

o Localization

o Added help bubbles to preference page options

o German translation

o Installer now checks if Keymap.sbar is active already and verifies
version and revision of (a possible already installed) Keymap.sbar

o Updated documentation
