I also have that feeling with the 05 version (but i also changed to 4mbPP so bad material to compare)
Just did a test with Dutch Keyboard files on SD card for the HTC keyboard..
And it works..
If i'm correct the main reason people want language versions is because of the T9 support (Interface doesn't seem to be the issue)
So i'm testing a Universal solution first for the HTC keybaord then i need to check the regular Keyboard.(i once had a tweak that allowed to save your words to SD to)
As for the Piranhe post.
That's for the enlarged Start menu. I am already using a newer version from the Touch Pro.
The enlarged Titlebar uses two Manilla files that i have also cooked but it doesn't read them.
The Startmenu works fine in QVGA it's the title bar that isn't looking as it should.
Now trying to fix it so it uses normal Qwerty lay out instead of Danish.
This has been mentioned before and answered and the solution has ben confirmed.
Okej looking forward to see the keyboard changes, let me know when you have another nightly i can test..
And i see you are very busy with uhm... everything from manilla 2d to touch surface to scratching you.... cat
