(fwd) kbd-0.91 is out - was: Re: Very strange keyboard error (fwd)

I was just forwarded this.

It was probably intended for the kbd maintainer, which is no longer me.

I think your map is faulty.
A week or maybe two ago, while creating kbd-0.91 I noticed
a similar flaw in one of the keymaps, possibly be-lat1
and corrected it.

[There are no "official" keymaps - usually I just make the
maps available that people send me - but sometimes obvious
bugs are corrected.]

Let me take this opportunity to announce that kbd-0.91 exists
(on ftp.funet.fi, near the kernel directory);
it seems my announcement on c.o.l.a. was eaten by the line eater.
[No need to get it - very little was changed.]
