Ekushey OS X Projects

From a long time Ekushey member Raiyan Kabir is doing huge research on Mac port of Bangla Unicode. Apple Inc. is also very helpful regarding the development and with the help of Apple, he did huge success on Ekushey Unicode Bangla solutions for Mac OS X.

The release is in final stage but we have to do some more Research and Development before we release it to public. So Mac users, you don’t need to be upset any more, you are going to have Mac version of Ekushey Unicode solutions very soon.

The release will be available from here.

Munir Unicode Bangla Layout Released!

Munir Layout users can easily learn and use the Unicode version.

Lots of Bangla speaking people around the world learned typing on a typewriter. It’s really hard to believe that typewrite can print all the conjuncts we need for our script. The widest typewriter layout was Munir Optima layout.

Later someone designed a software, which can let those typists to use that layout in computer for the hacked ASCII Bangla fonts. But no one did any research on making the layout Unicode compatible.

Ekushey team did some research and made this happen. It was tough but not impossible. Due to Unicode standards, we had to do some improvements to the layout, but it’s very minor and now Munir users can easily learn it and use it for their Unicode inputs.

The layout manager is free to download from here.

Mozilla Firefox 1.5.x.x Bangla (Bangladesh) Language Interface Pack released.

Ekushey.Org is working with Mozilla Foundation from a long time. Due to some problems with Bangla Language script support Ekushey could not make any release of Mozilla products.

But later Jamil Ahmed from Ankur raised his hands and find some hacked ways of Bangla translation of Mozilla products. So in the release sequel this is the second part.

More information about this can be found from here.

New! look and feel of Ekushey website

We changed the look and feel of the web site. The old site was 3.5 years old :)

The core site was designed by Dr. Robin Upton on 25 September 2001. Later Omi Azad joined Altruists International as web developer but didn’t changed the look of the old site because it was easy to manage.

But the cyber whole world is changing it’s look and feel and Ekushey members decided to change Ekushey.Org’s look also. So this is the site in front of you….

Ekusheyr Shadhinota Layout Managers Will Respect Bangla Locale

All Layouts are now compiled with Bengali Locale. Current users will not face any change or no need to update their layouts. Upcoming Windows Vista users will need this, because Windows Vista will respect Bangla Locale.

When the layout managers ware made, there was no support for Bangla locale in .Net Framework. So the layouts ware compiled with Sanskrit locale.

Windows XP/2000/2003 (any version) users cannot feel the changes, but this had to be done for upcoming Windows Vista users, else they may face problem installing and using the layout managers.

Next time Ekushey will release separate installers for Bangladeshi and Indian users. Bengali Speaking people people staying rest of the world can use anyone of their choice.
