  • Required:  Yes
  • Type of Change:  Rework

To give users more control and lessen a plugin's developer workload the SMS virtual keyboard has been removed and instead the standard keyboard now accepts SMS input.

Description of Change

If your plugin offered an option to use the SMS keyboard, you must remove it and all references to it in order for it to keep working. The standard virtual keyboard now offers SMS input to the user. Nothing else needs to be done, the user has the option in the UI to switch input modes. If your plugin didn't make use of the SMS keyboard then now it gets a feature for free (wink) .
