Welcome to the Smart Common Input Method (SCIM) platform project, which provides not only a user friendly, full featured input method user interface for POSIX-style operating systems (including Linux, FreeBSD and other Unix), but also a development platform to make input method development easier.
Currently the SCIM project has a wide range of input methods (some may need other libraries), covering more than 30 languages, including (Simplified/Traditional) Chinese, Japanese, Korean and many European languages. Composing/Dead key support is also one of the built-in features. In addition, several projects have been established to design IMEngines for SCIM and others supply their own SCIM plugins.
Latest development release of skim 1.3.1 is available for download now. Please help us test it and report any bugs if any. This update is highly recommanded for anyone currently using skim 1.3.0. In addition, scim-qtimm received some bug fixes as well: scim-qtimm 0.9.1 is released.
