|Subject:||Shortcuts ("h" etc) don't work with Kail|
> Hi All,

The menu interface replaces the quick-keys because plugins had to be able to add new keys; the menu is the only way to do it. You can use menu hotkeys - the highlighted/underlined letter, so it's only two buttons to access a menu function, but the single-key stuff is long gone (since about 2007).
The ncurses interface is being supplanted with a much more functional web-based interface in the newest git code, as well, again mostly driven by the need to allow plugins to render more complex information.
