Each language engine has also been upgraded to the IIIMF revision 12 base. The Japanese language engines, ATOK12 and Wnn6, have been updated to ATOK for Oracle Solaris and Wnn8 respectively. ATOK for Oracle Solaris is equivalent to ATOK17. A new Chinese chewing input method has also been added to the IIIMF.
