PuTTY 0.69 inadvertently reverted to using the Windows API
ToAsciiEx() instead of ToUnicodeEx(), which we had
started using in 0.63 (win-tounicodeex).
This prevents typing characters outside the current Windows code page
into the PuTTY terminal window. We haven't tested for the
consequences, but previous correspondence suggests that this can be
expected to cause problems including the following:
- Inability to enter Romanian characters s-comma and t-comma (ș
and ț), which are in ISO-8859-16 but not ISO-8859-2, on at least
- Trouble with keyboards in Unicode-only locales (Armenian, Georgian
- Inability to enter characters outside the current ANSI code page
