What's New

Version 1.5 fixes a regression in the touch layout version of the keyboard where sequences including punctuation would convert as per the desktop version.

Version 1.3 has updated the touch layout version of the keyboard -- no changes were made to the desktop version. Updates to the touch layout include minor bug fixes, improved layer switching, and a repositioning of some special keys such as backspace.
