What about announcing it on dot.kde.org and edu.kde.org?

> As a small info ahead, here are the features I plan to have in KTouch 2.0

> - better keyboard drawing engine to support different keyboard
> layouts/character sets, also more keys can be printed on each key
> - progressive build-up of the keyboard: only the keys that are known in the
> current level are drawn colored, others are still grey (thus helping kids
> to focus on the keys they should know so far)
> - games:
> ballon game: ballons with character draw on them fly up, press the correct
>              key and ***bang***
> block game: single colored blocks with characters fall down the screen in a
>             grid, pressing keys with the characteds makes blocks
> dissappear, press them in a correct order to align 4 blocks of the same
> color to get extra points
> - tests: for school kids and teachers, you can setup a test by defining the
> text to type (lecture and levels), and an optional time limit - during the
> test you cannot change settings like auto-level-advance or manual-level
> advance or anything else (to avoid cheating and give teachers the means to

> Feel free to send me mails with you suggestions or post them on the list or
> file feature request... I would like to get KTouch as good as possible for
> the KDE4 release.
