Hi all! :-)

With Multilingual-nice.248, that bug was fixed in Squeak.

I suppose that VMs before 201911160620 will not work anymore with the recent Squeak Trunk on Windows. Not sure. Anyway, the VM 201911282316 is still a valid candidate for the Squeak 5.3 release. Yay. :-)

Hi, there.

I am on Windows 10, German keyboard layout. Yesterday, I switched to OpenSmalltalk-VM version 201911282316, 32-bit.

Here are the symptoms:

- I cannot type German umlauts anymore (öäü) in a workspace
- The Monticello patch browser finds strange diffs for things I did not touch

Affected VM versions:

- 201911282316
- 201911222128 
- 201911220849
- 201911182135
- 201911160620

Last time it worked as expected was in 201911140217.

This is a serious issue. :-O
