hterm 1.52: Treat Ctrl-Alt as AltGr

* Assume that Ctrl-Alt-[Printable] means AltGr-[Printable].  After this change,
  we ignore the ctrl/alt modifiers when they appear in keydown, leaving it
  up to the browser to send the correct key code in the keypress event.  This
  fixes a longstanding issue with international keyboards where users could
  not type characters/symbols that required use of AltGr.

  We will still have trouble on the mac, which does not set Ctrl+Alt when
  AltGr is used.

There is also a mirror on github at https://github.com/libapps/libapps-mirror. Keep in mind that this mirror may occasionally be behind the official repository.

All changes must go through the Gerrit code review server on http://chromium-review.googlesource.com. Github pull requests cannot be accepted. Please see the HACK.md document in this directory for the details.

Top level directories

  • libdot/ is a small set of JS libraries initially developed as part of hterm, now available as shared code. It provides a base layer for web applications. The code is intended to work in any modern browser, in either a plain web page or a “privileged” environment such as a Chrome platform application or Firefox extension. In practice, it's only been put to use in Chrome platform applications so far.

  • hterm/ is a JS library that provides a terminal emulator. It is reasonably fast, reasonably correct, and reasonably portable across browsers.

  • nassh/ is a Chrome App (currently a “v1.5” app, soon to become a “v2” or platform app) that combines hterm with a NaCl build of OpenSSH to provide a PuTTY-like app for Chrome users.

  • wash/ is a library for cross-origin virtual filsystems, similar to the Plan 9 filesystem. This directory also contains a simple bash-like shell environment for exploring these filesystems. The code in this directory is a work-in-progress.
