Recent releases

  •  26 Apr 2003 00:49

    Release Notes: A sophisticated feature for typing in your own text files (for example e-books) was added, with memory of last position in typed files (up to 10 files supported symultaneously). A few minor bugfixes and improvements were made, and the configuration data layout has changed.

    •  18 Mar 2003 12:39

      Release Notes: Repetition mode was added. In this mode, all mistakes during a lesson are collected so that the user can be asked to type mistaken letters again.

      •  14 Mar 2003 15:53

        Release Notes: This release adds a random test lesson with some configurable parameters, an improved configuration menu, a few bugfixes (including one for the long-standing "trash at last letter of page" bug), and a description of the random test mechanism in the README file.

            Another nice-to-see would be to have dvorakng read from stdin to provide a typing exercise.

            Thanks for the modifications, i have missed the 'own text file' option in dvorak7min.
            Another mods could be:
            - to store the last score, or scores for each lesson, and maybe an average also, to see the (hopefully) improvement;
            - to let the terminal/the system configuration decide the background and foreground colours - I miss the whitish background with black/dark text.
            But, got the vote up :)

            Very nice
            This is a great program, and there is only one thing that is missing. When I am typing and I get a letter wrong, it benefits me to know what i just typed instead. Something in the corner that showed the last typed letter would help a lot.

            Your tools seems great and quite simple to learn dvorak but would you consider adding dvroak-fr and fr-dvorak support ?
