Hi all, this is to announce the release of new keyboard layout library files for FreeDOS and a new package of DOS-oriented codepages. The details are as follows.
KEYBOARD.SYS, KEYBRD2.SYS new release: KPDOS package v2.1 This is an important update to US keyboard users: the US Dvorak keyboard was being loaded instead. Furthermore, the documentation was greatly improved; the US and UK (standard) keyboards have been enhanced to type esperanto, maltese and afrikaans (the US keyboard was also enhanced to type maori); the norwegian and swedish/finnish keyboards were enhanced to type saami and karelian languages, as well as ingrian and livonian. Important: nothing has changed on the behaviours of all the keyboards mentioned above when they're used with their regular (e.g. cp858) codepages. Last but not least, support for the maltese keyboard (as released in Malta in Feb/2005) was added. For users who haven't downloaded any former KPDOS package, this is mandatory in order to use your keyboards. 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/kpdos21s.zip Libraries: http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/micro/pc-stuff/freedos/files/dos/keyb/kblayout/kpdos21x.zip CPIDOS v1.4: New pack of DOS-oriented codepages This new package is only necessary for norwegian and finnish/swedish keyboard owners to type saami and karelian languages, ingrian and livonian. For users who haven't downloaded any former CPIDOS package, this is mandatory in order to use your keyboards. Detailed documentation is available in the package.
