My blog, http://nathanaeljones.com/ is now online, and I have begin moving the documentation for all of my open-source projects over to the new site.
Quick Key 5.2 is the first version to support a German interface, and to support GTK+ applications. This version is designed to work right out of the box, without detailed configuration.
Quick Key allows you to enter non-standard characters easily into documents and applications. The interface is streamlined for rapid entry, and supports single-click character transfer. Quick Key is ideal for mathematics, foreign languages, and font development.
Quick Key improves on the standard Character Map design by providing more power over the character transfer process, and a more flexible interface for simultaneous use with other applications. The application operates in the notification area of your taskbar to keep your screen clean and uncluttered. You will definitely want to give this program a try if you have ever been frustrated by memorizing character codes or using Microsoft Character Map.
Quick Key is essential for learning about Unicode, glyphs, and fonts in general. Unicode is a specification that matches numerical codes to graphical symbols. More than 65,000 different symbols can be represented by a Unicode character, and when two character places are used, the number jumps into the millions. The need for so many characters stems from the multitude of languages spoken around the world, and the size of some Asian alphabets.
Quick Key has been under development as proprietary software for five years, so this marks the first release of the product under the GPL.
