As many of us have already seen this on Android Police, here's the new Google Keyboard version 4.0 from the Android 5.0 Lollipop Preview which was released yesterday!
As per the source, it doesn't work just by side-loading the app, a library(from /system/lib/) called libjni_latinimegoogle.so from the Android 5.0 Lollipop Preview is also needed to run this.
Note - There are some issues regarding side-loading the app ('App not installed').
This is somewhat different than the previous port as this is v4.0.21003.1519572
Changes from the previous version-
- Added 'Material Light' theme (keeping Material Dark, Holo White and Holo Blue for option).
- Overhauled the 'Settings' screen.
- More keyboard layouts added including QWERTY, QWERTZ, AZERTY, Dvorak, Colemak, and PC.
- Support for new languages.
- New animations.
I've just made it flashable zip that will install it as a system app so that it cuts out the time required for manual installation after ROM flashing and also reduces the issues regarding side-loading.
