What's the reason behind removing the Key Repeat tab?

Karabiner-Elements use virtual keyboard to post key events since v0.90.69.
(We have to use the virtual keyboard to support sticky modifiers in Accessibility features.)

Apple does not provide a way to change the key repeat rate of keyboard devices.
Thus, the key repeat configuration was vanished.

Is there any way to re-add this feature? Something I really enjoyed!

BTW thank you @tekezo for making my machines more productive! Love your software

Hi @jackzampolin,
You can build the v0.90.68 from the source code as I did :)

You can do it by defaults command without Karabiner-Elements.
(You have to logout and login to apply the setting.)

Example:

defaults write NSGlobalDomain KeyRepeat -int 10

I do not know how Karabiner-Elements does it but I am able to set the KeyRepeat and InitialKeyRepeat from the Karabiner-Elements UI with a much more responsive feeling compared to editing the defaults. Is it just changing the defaults under the hood?

NSGlobalDomain KeyRepeat and NSGlobalDomain InitialKeyRepeat don't seem to affect my system (karabiner elements currently installed)

Log out and log it is necessary to see the effects.

I'm currently using

$ defaults write NSGlobalDomain KeyRepeat -float 1.3
$ defaults write NSGlobalDomain InitialKeyRepeat -int 11

Which is the same as:
