Hi All,
I'm sorry to bring this up at almost the last stage of Lucid
development cycle. Since Lucid will
be another LTS, so I think I'd better to raise this up. IBus 1.3 has
been released on 2010-03-21, just
one week ago, and most of those packages have been uploaded to Debian
experimental already[1], which
means that those in experimental have been built and installed successfully.
I have discussed with upstream on this as well, Peng Huang also
recommended to use ibus-1.3 series for
Lucid,  upstream will focus on 1.3 series mostly,  then if we still
use 1.2 series in a LTS release, we'll have
to backport any bug fix from 1.3 series.
The majority changes in IBus 1.3 series as below, diff of Changelog
attached for reference.
   1 use floating IBusObject
   2 support share one global engine in all applications
   3 some ui improvements
   4 bug fixes

So I'd suggest to have ibus-1.3 pulled into Lucid from Debian
experimental. Since this new upstream release
will have abi transition, therefore I prefer to discuss this more
before filing FFe.

NB, Peng Huang might not be on this list, so if you can CC him, that
would be great.
