* The default engine for Simplified Chinese has been changed to '''ibus-libpinyin''' (see [[Features/ibus-libpinyin]] for more details).
+
** IME switcher dialog is implemented on GNOME Desktop.
* On the GNOME Desktop, '''im-chooser''' is now deprecated except in fallback mode, and with non-ibus input methods, since GNOME 3.6 supports ibus as the default input method system.  Users should now use gnome-control-center to setup their input methods:
+
** <code>ibus-setup</code> provides 2 options for non-GNOME desktops: ''Use system keyboard'' and ''Embed preedit text in application window''
*# click on the user menu at the upper right corner of the panel.
+
* '''ibus-kkc''' (Kana-Kanji Conversion) is a new default Japanese input method engine using the new libkkc backend, replacing '''ibus-anthy'''.
*# select ''System Settings'' from the menu
+
* '''ibus-libpinyin''' (intelligent pinyin engine using '''libpinyin''') now supports configuring enabled dictionaries and importing 3rd party dictionaries in setup dialog.
*# click on the ''Region & Language'' icon
+
* '''ibus-bogo''' is a new Vietnamese engine for IBus.
*# open the ''Input Sources'' tab
+
* '''ibus-typing-booster''' now makes better use of '''hunspell''' when making suggestions and supports Tab completions.
*# click on ''+'' icon to add input sources
+
* '''imsettings''' now checks the <code>org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.keyboard.active</code> gsettings key to determine if imsettings should manage input methods on GNOME and Cinnamon Desktops. If you do not want to use IBus integration for them, set the key to <code>false</code>.
*# choose one or more input source you want to add
+
* If you can't find an input source in the list you are looking for, try running the following command in a terminal and restart the desktop:
+
*:<pre>gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.input-sources show-all-sources true</pre>
+
* There may be no shortcut key to turn on/off the input method by default. you can enable it with the following steps:
+
*# click the ''shortcut settings'' link in the ''Input Sources'' tab on ''System Settings'' or click the ''Keyboard'' icon at the top and the ''Shortcuts'' tab, the ''Typing'' section at the left pane.
+
*# click on the ''Switch to next source'', press '''[Control]''' + '''[space]'''.
+
* If no input source is configured by default for your native language, you can add it using the above steps as a workaround.  Here is a table of input sources corresponding to the input method engines:

* '''ibus-typing-booster''' is a predictive input method for the ibus platform. It predicts complete words based on partial input. One can then simply select the desired word from a list of suggestions and improve one's typing speed and spelling. '''ibus-typing-booster''' currently supports the following Asian and European languages:
+
** Assamese, Bengali, Farsi, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Maithili, Marathi, Nepali, Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, Urdu
+
** English, Danish, French
+
* If you want to use non-ibus input method such as fcitx and uim etc, remove '''ibus''' package from the system first and restart the desktop. '''im-chooser''' will gets back to work on even GNOME.
