As we announced before, the ibus client is now maintenance mode.  We had not 
actively committed for the ibus client.  To focus our limited resources on our 
core technology and clarify our decision, we will remove the code of ibus from 
our repository by the end of August 2015 at the latest.

Of course, any code of ibus is still available from the previous versions of 
our repository.   Anyone can fork the ibus client project too.

Thank you very much for your help and feedback to ibus-mozc so far.

Due to other schedule conflicts, the actual date of ibus removal from Mozc repository is likely to be delayed. The ETA is by the end of this year but is still subject to change. Note that nothing has changed in the circumstances that led us to decide to deprecate ibus-mozc.

@yukawa yukawa Support 'icon_prop_key' entry in ibus-mozc.
Fixes #344.

Showing a status icon instead of the IME's product icon is a new feature
introduced by ibus/ibus@23c45b9 and has
been available since IBus 1.5.11.

Although supporting new IBus feature is not our goal any more,
supporting his feature before we delete ibus-mozc in #287 may help some
people.

Showing a status icon instead of the IME's product icon is a new feature
introduced by ibus/ibus@23c45b9 and has
been available since IBus 1.5.11.  Hence this CL adds 'icon_prop_key' to
mozc.xml when the IBus version is 1.5.11 or later.

Although supporting new IBus feature is not our goal any more,
supporting his feature before we delete ibus-mozc in #287 may help some

One thing you should keep in mind is that the version of IBus is checked
at build time, not run-time.  This means that if you upgrade IBus from
1.5.10 or prior to 1.5.11 or later then you have to rebuild ibus-mozc so
that mozc.xml can be updated.
