The input method switcher application, gnome-im-switcher-applet, is replaced with a stand-alone GTK+ application, iiim-panel. iiim-panel now starts and resides on the GNOME panel automatically when you log in to the Java Desktop System (Java DS) in UTF-8 or Asian locales. iiim-panel can also run in the Common Desktop Environment (CDE).
IIIMF supports language engines that emulate the EMEA keyboard layout such as French, Polish or Dutch.
For more information, see the online help of the input method preference editor (iiim-properties).
