Hi All,
The packages are now available on https://download.fcitx-im.org/fcitx5/ .

As usual, the "_dict" version is the one that does not require the
network during building.

Feel free to package, test and play with it. One of the biggest
improvements is the Pinyin Input method and new libime library. It
comes with tons of new features and the algorithm is also greatly
improved. I hope you can enjoy it. Note, pinyin input method is now
residing in fcitx5-chinese-addons package.

For bug report: https://github.com/fcitx/fcitx5/issues or
corresponding repo if you know the right repo).

For people who want to migrate data their from fcitx 4 (note due to
the difference in implementation, only part of the data is supported),
please use fcitx5-migrator command in fcitx5-configtool package
(pinyin, table, rime, skk, kkc are supported).

The environment variable (GTK_IM_MODULE, XMODIFIERS, QT_IM_MODULE) can
be kept the same, as long as the corresponding package are installed
(fcitx5-gtk, fcitx5-qt).
