Florence is an extensible scalable virtual keyboard for GNOME. You need it if you can't use a real hardware keyboard, for example because you are disabled, your keyboard is broken or because you use a tablet PC, but you must be able to use a pointing device (as a mouse, a trackball, or a touchscreen); If you can't use a pointing device, there is gok, which can be used with just simple switches.
In release 0.4.1, Florence now collaborates with the real keyboard, so for example if push the real CAPS_LOCK key Florence knows it and updates itself (requires libxtst). There is a new startup notification giving some basic informations on Florence usage. You can disable it permanently by clicking on the 'Do not show again' button and it can be disabled at compile time with --without-notify. Now style changes are applied immediately so you can see the result directly. You can still cancel them before exiting the settings dialog. Windows gravity set to static so it does not move when you switch the decorated flag. key labels have been Internationalized and localized in french. Some minor bugs have been fixed.
