+## General info
+libxklavier is a library providing high-level API for X Keyboard Extension known as XKB. This library is indended to support XFree86 and other commercial X servers. It is useful for creating XKB-related software (layout indicators etc).
+The current features are:
+ * Reading XKB configuration registry information (for XFree86)
+ * Configuring XKB
+ * Application-defined callbacks for many XKB-related events
+ * Support for per-window switching etc.
+ * Proper support of XKB on X server and X client side
+ * Any version of X.Org or XFree86 4.3 or above with support of multiple layouts and base.xml/xorg.xml/xfree.xml configuration registry present
+The API documentation can be found [[here|http://xlibs.freedesktop.org/xkbdesc/doc]].
+Short document regarding "Why multiple layouts rock" is recommended for reading - available [[in PDF format|http://xlibs.freedesktop.org/xkbdesc/xkbconfig.pdf]] and [[in OOo format|http://xlibs.freedesktop.org/xkbdesc/xkbconfig.sxw]].
+Some problems of XKB (and XFree implementation) are listed here: [[in PDF format|http://xlibs.freedesktop.org/xkbdesc/antixkb.pdf]] and [[in OOo format|http://xlibs.freedesktop.org/xkbdesc/antixkb.sxw]].
+The released files are located at [[Sourceforge web site|http://sourceforge.net/projects/gswitchit/files/libxklavier/]].
+The anonymous CVS repo at freedesktop.org: :pserver:[[firstname.lastname@example.org|mailto:email@example.com]]:/cvs/xklavier
+## X servers support
+The library is designed to be usable with any X server with proper implementation of XKB extenstion. So far, it was only tested on XFree86 XKB implementation. The author is interested in supporting other X servers as well. He would be very grateful for any information/patches/feedback regarding usage of libxklavier on platforms other than XOrg/XFree86.
