What is FreeWnn?


Current (alpha) version: 1.1.1-a023

NOTE: We don't officially have a client implementation now. (You can try uum ( terminal frontend for Japanese) by adding '--enable-client' with the configure script, but it is experimental.) Please use (for example) Tamago (for Emacs), kinput2, im-ja and other clients using libwnn.

You can get current (alpha) source code via Release Files section of the project page. We recommend the current version.

The latest development code is hosted in the CVS repository of OSDN . You can view the source tree through the web via CVS Repository page. To get code via Anonymous CVS, you can do like the following:
