Detailed Description

ibus-libpinyin is an Intelligent Pinyin Input Method based on the modern libpinyin backend providing better conversation of pinyin to Simplified Chinese than ibus-pinyin.

Benefit to Fedora

Fedora users will be able to use the new ibus-libpinyin by default for Simplified Chinese input and input Chinese faster and more accurately than using ibus-pinyin. The upstream ibus-pinyin engine will also be available separately.

Scope

  • add new ibus-libpinyin package to Fedora (done)
  • integrate with libpinyin 0.7.x series (done)
  • enhance LUA script support (done)
  • update comps to make ibus-libpinyin installed by default
  • transition ibus-pinyin to ibus-libpinyin when upgrading
  • optionally, support character input by strokes (in progress)

How To Test

  • Check that "Intelligent Pinyin" is listed in the ibus-setup list of IMEs and is the default IME for Simplified Chinese.
  • Add "Intelligent Pinyin" to the list of IMEs and begin to use the new pinyin ime.
  • Get some testing sentences, and input them under both "Pinyin" and "Intelligent Pinyin": note whether"Intelligent Pinyin" reduces the number of key presses required to enter the sentences.

User Experience

With the ibus-libpinyin front end, Chinese users can speed up the pinyin input speed by pressing less keys. Fedora ibus-pinyin will still also be available and no longer a fork from upstream.
