Future Plans – Osk 5 (Posted October 2010)
From the developer: Even though it appears that the site has been sleeping, I haven’t. I have been designing and planning a new release. The version 5 that I have not dared to put out yet. It is still being worked on, the work happens to be greater than I had initially thought. But with new versions of the development tools and the iPad showing up, limitless possibilities.
