Ekushey Extended support for Microsoft Windows 7. Microsoft is planning to release Windows 7 very soon, so we already updated our solution.
Ekushey Fonts and Typing solutions will work without any problem on Windows 7.
We all know that web application is the future of computing and from a very long time we have been working on how to make Bangla typing easy on the web. We have delivered some successful extensions/tools/scripts for make Bangla typing easy on the web. But that was no enough. Complex CMS like Joomla, Drupal or web applications needs advance editor for WYSIWYG text editing. TinyMCE is a very popular WYSIWYG editor for CMS or web applications. So we came up with a solution. We implimented all our Bangla web typing scripts on TinyMCE and we are calling it TinyBN. More on the project page.
As you all know that Palash's Bhasha is a very good Java based platform independent application for typing Bangla, Hindi and English simultaneously. We just have released it's new version with PDF output. Now you can type and save them as PDF. This is a very useful feature users have been requesting for so long.
Ekushey Extended support for Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 3 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008. Recently Microsoft release Service Pack 3 for Windows XP and a new Server Operating System Windows Server 2008. Now Windows XP with Service Pack 3 and Windows Server 2008 users can use Ekushey Typing Managers for their operating system without any hassle as Ekushey has extended the platform support.
By this time Ekushey is working on making one single installer for each keyboard layouts. For example now if you want to use UniJoy, you have to choose the exact version of your operating system. Some people don't even know what OS or what Service pack they are using. So to ease the use we are working on a single installer system, which will detect your OS version and install the Typing manager.
So after we release one individual pack for individual layouts, you don't need to download the specific layout. Just download the installer of the layout you want to use and install without any hassle.
Till then, stay tuned!
The last release was a bit buggy so we fixed that today. There is another thing we have done. Users from around the world was sending us suggestion that we must keep the previous version with the latest one in parallel because lots of sites are using the legacy version of QWERTY Phonetic Bangla Layout and they don't want to use the latest Intelligent features.
So today we updated the Intelligent version and left the Legacy version in parallel. Thanks to all for your suggestion, support and feedback.
