This is another beta period extension release. I've been working on some theme tweaks to the Material Design theme but they were not ready in time for this release. Thanks for your patience on this and apologies for a second such "lame" release.

The reason it didn't find it automatically is likely because it doesn't have an "approved" MD5SUM. The library finder code takes an MD5 of the prospective library and checks it against a list, as some versions of that library are *VERY* incompatible with AOSP-based keyboards. A bad native library will cause the keyboard to enter a loop of crashing and restarting.

I need to get a device on 4.4.3 already and test the stock library. For some reason my stock Nexus 7 doesn't want to fetch the update so I'll have to grab it manually.
Hi, regarding the typing library subject, can you do something to improve the user experience? In my case I had to navigate and fish the correct library already in my /system. Even if the md5sum doesn't match I think the app still needs to detect and present to the user some possible candidates, so any non-techie user can easily try them out.

I saw reviews on the play store complaining about lack of swipe typing and it's sad since many folks will have a compatible library in their devices already, without knowing about it.

Can you make the app automatically select the typing library if the md5sum matches but still prompt the user and present possible files from the system if the md5sum does not match?

The only problem with this would be that if the typing library isn't the correct one (as is going to be more and more the case) it can be a pretty major failure. Unless the MD5 aligns, I don't want anyone except fairly technically oriented people trying it, because correcting such a problem can require doing a "Clear Data" on the keyboard (or simply uninstalling/reinstalling it).

If you have a typing library that's working 100% and isn't detected, please let me know the path and/or MD5. (Would also like to know Android version and what type of device/ROM.)

@mako:/ $ md5 /system/lib/libjni_latinimegoogle.so

stock 4.4.4 on a nexus 4. Works perfectly.

Also it would be good if the keyboard settings showed you the currently selected library (ideally allowing to copy to the clipboard). Right now it only says that a library is installed with no further info.

The only trouble I've had with this keyboard is the gesture typing. I haven't found a working library to install. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Otherwise I'm pretty confident using the keyboard and haven't had any major issues. I vote for 1.0!
