New website

New website

In view of the release of Inputlog 8 and of the SIG Writing Conference later this month, we figured the website could do with a makeover.

The new website does not only have a new look that is also fit for mobile devices, it also contains some new content. Have fun exploring! If you discover any hiccups, please let us know.

Upgrade to Inputlog 8.0

Upgrade to Inputlog 8.0

We are happy to release Inputlog version 8.0. This version is a major update of the program, and guarantees upward compatibility.

Extra features include:

  • Inputlog is optimized for Windows 10.
  • A standardized copy task has been added and is now available in eight languages. The analysis of this task enables researchers to characterize motoric and low level processes from different perspectives (e.g., with respect to bigram frequency, task complexity, keyboard layout).
