gnome-keyboard-applet: as good as goneDecember 27, 2009 6:10 pm g-a, gnome
Today, the applet code is dropped from gnome-applets. Since gnome-settings-daemon now includes the notification icon (automatically appearing/disappearing), the applet is no longer needed.
Back in 1999 (Nov 29) it was the gswitchit applet that was committed to SourceForge. After GUADEC in Dublin it got merged into GNOME, some bits and pieces went to gnome-control-center. The rest is history…
The technology goes on. The functionality stays and improves. The initial point, the applet is gone.
