Originalnachricht

Name        : xkeyboard-config
Product : Fedora 16
Version : 2.3
Release : 3.fc16
URL : http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/XKeyboardConfig
Summary : X Keyboard Extension configuration data
Description :
This package contains configuration data used by the X Keyboard Extension
(XKB), which allows selection of keyboard layouts when using a graphical
interface.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-
Update Information:

The previous version of xkeyboard-config included the key combinations to clear
and/or kill grabs in the default keymap. This enabled users to get around screen locks that use grabs to prevent input to other applications (e.g. gnome-screensaver). This update moves the definition of the key combinations to a XKB option that must be explicitly enabled by the user.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ChangeLog:

* Thu Jan 19 2012 Peter Hutterer <peter.hutterer@redhat.com> 2.3-3
- Move Ungrab and ClearGrab from the default layout to option
grab:break_actions (#783044)
