Planning functions in the future versions

Original plan is changed!

Add Stroke Input Method will be implemented in the version 3.0 instead of 2.0. That means with that release you can input Hanzi by the strokes of the character itself, even if you are not good at Mandarin Chinese speaking or not familiar with Hanyu-Pinyin system.

In version 2.x, two functions will be added.

One is Phrase Input Method (based on the Easy Pinyin and the other stroke IME), that means you can quickly input a Chinese multi-characters phrase once a time.

Another is Auto Adjustment of Candidates Sequence, that means the display sequence of candidate Hanzi will be adjusted automatically according to how frequent the user picking up the Chinese character from the candidates.
