    Notable changes since last version (2.8.6):

 

! By default, Vocola now uses SendInput instead of SendDragonKeys to

  send keystrokes.  This should work better in most cases: SendInput is

  immune to the character doubling/dropping bug, for example.

  SendInput, however, does not work with UAC-elevated windows and may

  have issues with some foreign-language keyboard settings.  

 

  Accordingly, you may now temporarily switch back to SendDragonKeys via

  a voice command, add code in the the DragonProxy extension (see below)

  to further translate keystrokes as needed, or simply delete the

  DragonProxy extension to permanently switch back to using

  SendDragonKeys.  

 

  More information on the different ways of sending keystrokes may be

  found on the Vocola 2 website at

  http://vocola.net/v2/SendingKeystrokes.asp.

 

! The following unofficial Vocola extensions have been made official,

  and are now included in the Vocola 2 release:

    Clipboard, Date, Env, Keys, Subprocess, Variable, and Vocola

 

! Python version 2.6 is no longer supported

 

* Vocola now supports a _Dragon proxy_, which is a special Vocola

  extension that can intercept and change or redirect Vocola's calls to

  Dragon.  A starter version of the proxy is provided which can switch

  back and forth between SendDragonKeys and SendInput for default

  keystrokes as well as print out Dragon actions when verbose mode is

  turned on.

 

* Vocola now prints an error if the user redefines an extension function

 

* A great deal of portability work has been done under the covers to

  make Vocola 2 work with Python 3.  Hopefully the next version will

  support Python 3.

 

* Vocola 2 is being refactored to be more flexible.  As part of this, it

  is now possible to choose a backend dynamically at "compile time".

  This is intended to be used for "cross-compilation" -- e.g., compiling

  to Dragonfly or Advanced Scripting instead of NatLink directly.

  Currently only NatLink and trivial echo backends are available.

 

    This will hopefully be the last version that only works with Python

2.  A combined installer that installs NatLink and this version of

Vocola will *not* be available -- the NatLink project is focusing instead on a

new version that works with Python 3.  This plus some dependencies that

have crept in for the installer means that the install procedure for

Vocola is somewhat longer than I would like.  See

http://vocola.net/v2/InstallVocola.asp for the installation

instructions.
