Hi all,

The virtual keyboard used by sxmo had received some significant updates
in last two months. We're happy to release it as v0.14 now. It should land in
postmarketOS edge later today.

Release notes:

[Maarten van Gompel]
* Revised various layouts
    * the `full` layout squeezes less keys in a row
    * the `landscape` layout was revised
    * added a dedicated symbols layout for landscape mode: `landscapespecial`
    * the tiny keys on the `simple` layout are removed
    * more consistency between layouts (relative row placement, key locations)
    * changed default font to Sans instead of Mono
    * changed some icons
* More consistent compose behaviour across layouts
* Compose layouts can be dismissed with a simple click/tap now
* Scroll wheel switches layers (as opposed to crashing as it did before)
