Fremantle virtual keyboard source code available

Hi there,

I was able to successfully RE several components of Fremantle virtual keyboard:

libhildon-im-vkbrenderer.so.3.0.3 (source package hildon-im-vkbrenderer3)
hildon_western_fkb.so, libhildon-im-western-plugin-common.so.3.0.8 (source package hildon-input-method-plugins)

source code is here:

hildon-im-vkbrenderer3 - git://gitorious.org/community-ssu/hildon-im-vkbrenderer3.git
hildon-input-method-plugins - git://gitorious.org/community-ssu/hildon-input-method-plugins.git

Compiled libraries are fully functional replacement of the stock closed source packages. No known issues so far, though an extensive testing should be performed before assumed stable.

With that source code available, someone who knows GTK could easily implement virtual keyboard replacement, that has fully functional portrait mode support.

So far I did not RE western_common_vim_settings.so (Settings UI), but that should be relatively easy if needed.

Regards,
Ivo

Congratulations freemangordon for yet another successful development
Fremantle replacement.

This community won't be able to thank you as much as you deserve for your
continuous efforts to improve Maemo 5.

Thanks for explanation to Andre and for hard work to freemangordon!

freemangordon: You should announce it on tmo, so that more people will
notice your work.
