Details

An updated xkeyboard-config package that fixes one bug and adds two enhancements
is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The xkeyboard-config package provides the xkeyboard-config alternative xkb data
files.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, duplicate mapping for the backslash key caused the Indic
Onscreen Keyboard (IOK) to exit with a segmentation fault when the Hindi Wx
mapping was selected. This update modifies the mapping so that IOK no longer
exits unexpectedly. (BZ#638612)

This update also adds the following enhancements:

* With this update, the Unicode Rupee symbol is now included in the Indic
keyboard layouts. (BZ#651774)

* This update upgrades the xkeyboard-config data files to upstream version 2.3.
(BZ#713863)

All users of xkeyboard-config are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which addresses this bug and adds these enhancements.
