Details

An updated iok package that fixes multiple bugs is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

The iok package contains an Indic on-screen virtual keyboard that supports the
Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, Malayalam, Punjabi, Oriya,
Sindhi, Tamil and Telugu languages. Currently, iok works with Inscript and xkb
keymaps for Indian languages, and is able to parse and display non-Inscript
keymaps as well.

The iok package has been upgraded to upstream version 1.3.13, which provides a
number of bug fixes over the previous version. This update also fixes the
following bugs:

* Due to xkb keymaps being rewritten in a recent update of the xkeyboard-config
package, the iok's language list contained incorrect xkb keymap names when
selecting the Hindi X Keyboard Extension (XKB). To fix this problem, the iok's
xkb parser has been rewritten. (BZ#736992)

* Previously, iok looked for files with the ".mim" suffix in the "~/.m17n"
directory instead of the "~/.m17n.d" directory. This update modifies the
directory path to the correct "~/.m17n.d" so that the user-defined keymap files
are saved in the correct directory. (BZ#752667)

* Previously, when using the on-screen keyboard, mouse clicks on various
characters worked as expected. However, finger inputs failed because the first
selected character was selected regardless of what characters the user selected
next. With this update, users can use the drag-and-drop feature when running iok
in advanced mode (the "iok -a" command), which allows users to drag the first
key button over the second button. The drag-and-drop feature is not available in
iok's default mode. (BZ#752668)

* Due to a small size of the xkb name array, if the user selected the
xkb-Malayalam keymap (enhanced Indian Script with the Rupee sign), and then
pressed the "To English" button, the iok utility could terminate unexpectedly.
With this update, the size of the xkb name array has been increased so that the
utility no longer crashes in the described scenario. (BZ#798592)

All users of iok are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
these bugs.
