Tons of Javelin Improvements!

Javelin, the Embedded Steno Engine, has gotten a ton of upgrades recently. From Jeffrey, its creator:
Over the last couple of weeks, Javelin has seen a number of improvements. Initial support for Asterisk has been added. A couple of long standing issues resolved, and a more robust translation windowing mechanism (how many strokes to consider when converting to text) has been implemented, with a side effect of dramatically improving performance, which also improves battery life on the Jarne.

Over a slightly longer timeframe (few months), there have been other improvements. Here are just a few:

• Improved Linux/Android compatibility

• Added =retro_transform command -- this is particularly useful if you want to share strokes or definitions in your dictionary.

Documentation here

• Added TX Bolt and ProCAT output support

• Added dynamic TRS/bluetooth hotplug support for Jarne Variant B

• Added Yubikey support to Jarne

• Improved support for media keys

If you haven't rebuilt a full firmware in a while, now may be a good time; and keep the feedback/bug reports coming!
