After a number of development and testing cycles, and with the help and input of multiple backers on GitHub, I am pleased to announce the latest Signet release. The most significant update is the addition of keyboard layout management support, which will allow backers using keyboard layouts other than English (US) to make use of the device's typing functions.

All of the crowdfunded orders have been shipped out. Up until now, most reports I've received suggest the devices and the software are working well. However, now that Signets are arriving at destinations outside the US I've recieved reports of incorrect keys being generated due to the Signet client's fixed US English keyboard layout.

Throughout the campaign I haven't talked about the Android client very much. This has been because the desktop client is much further along, making it a much better vehicle for demonstrating new features. With very little time left in the campaign I thought I should clarify where the Android client development is at and where the client will likely be in when the devices ship. Read the full update.
I've been working on new features for the device at a steady pace throughout the campaign. With the end of the campaign coming up, I thought I'd share the latest features. Read the full update.
