Hi all, I would like to announce the release of the official library files (KEYBOARD.SYS and KEYBRD2.SYS) for the latest KEYB, which is v2.0 pre3. It's important to notice that they aren't compatible with any earlier FreeDOS KEYB version or any other OSes KEYB.
There are 81 layouts available on those two library files, which are enhanced versions (the Euro sign) of all the layouts available on MS-DOS(c) v6.22 as far as v8.0 as well as IBM OS/2 and old third-party solutions for layouts which have never been assisted by the major industry. There is detailed documentation available on both packages. They can be downloaded from: Source: http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/micro/pc-stuff/freedos/files/dos/keyb/kblayout/kpdos20s.zip Libraries: http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/micro/pc-stuff/freedos/files/dos/keyb/kblayout/kpdos20x.zip Also, I would like to announce a new version of the codepage pack of DOS-oriented codepages, CPIDOS v1.3. In case you haven't downloaded any earlier version, this package is mandatory. For the newcomers to DOS-like operating systems: codepages are sets of characters to type in languages which require accented characters or even whole different alphabets and also currency signs, those shade and linedraw characters used to create and illustrate DOS boxes, mathematical symbols, special punctuation signs, etc. The only difference between CPIDOS v1.2 and v1.3 is the relocation/inclusion of 2 codepages to take advantage of enhancements on the hungarian and polish keyboards. Hungarians can now use, if necessary, an old cp437-derived hungarian codepage which presents the Hungarian Forint (Ft) sign and kashubian-speaking poles can now type in that language. More details on the documentation available on the package. CPIDOS v1.3 can be downloaded from http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/micro/pc-stuff/freedos/files/dos/cpi/cpidos13.zip Have a nice day, Henrique Peron, Brazil ------------------------------------------------------- SF.Net email is Sponsored by the Better Software Conference & EXPO September 19-22, 2005 * San Francisco, CA * Development Lifecycle Practices Agile & Plan-Driven Development * Managing Projects & Teams * Testing & QA Security * Process Improvement & Measurement * http://www.sqe.com/bsce5sf _______________________________________________ Freedos-user mailing list Freedosfirstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/freedos-user
