The new ibus stack and indicator-keyboard are ready for testing in
ppa:ubuntu-desktop/ppa. If you are using Unity, please manually
install indicator-keyboard as we haven't set up the metapackages to
depend on it yet.

The new shortcut to switch keyboard layouts is Super+Space (this is
now the default in ibus, GNOME 3.8 and Windows 8). At this time, Unity
doesn't handle that keyboard shortcut properly ( http://pad.lv/1201679
). As a workaround, you can use Shift+Super+Space to switch keyboard
layouts backwards.

We are considering having ibus-daemon autostart for everyone, probably
using an upstart user session. This should help ensure that alternate
input methods just work without needing to enable an option and log
out first. http://pad.lv/1194138

Please let us know if the upgrade causes any new issues so we can deal
with regressions before uploading to Saucy directly. It would help if
someone could check the other desktop flavors (Kubuntu, Xubuntu, etc.)
too.

Thanks,
Jeremy
