@haiku congrats! :tada: a Haiku box will join my lab tomorrow so I can check out all the changes!
@djsundog @haiku Many years ago, I tried to become a contributor to the Haiku project. But, I couldn't -- the development tools just wouldn't compile for me, and plus, it's *all* in C++. (BeOS kernel and userland were always in C++; this was back in the Taligent days, remember!)
C++ is poison to me, but I'm happy that others are capable of grokking it and have worked to make a public beta available. Kudos and congratulations!!
@haiku congratulations !
@haiku please include Thai keymap, it's the only thing block me from using Haiku.
@cwt hi, we don't have any developers who know very much about Thai keymaps; could you contribute one? if you ask in Freenode#haiku they can probably teach you how to make one and then submit it for inclusion with the OS
@waddlesplash yeah, I would like to do so.
@waddlesplash I'm trying to create Thai keymap follow the instruction on this page: https://www.haiku-os.org/docs/userguide/en/preferences/keymap.html
@waddlesplash I just figured it out that the value on each key isn't unicode block but the binary value of the unicode character instead. I think I can finish the Thai keymap around 1 or 2 weeks. Mapping each character to binary value one by one is painfully slow.
