Easy Window Switcher 1.1.0 with international keyboard support

Hello international users of EWS! We’re really happy to announce the immediate availability of Easy Window Switcher 1.1.0, which brings support for internationalized keyboards to EWS users worldwide!

For those that haven’t been keeping in touch, Easy Window Switcher is a nifty, tiny utility that boosts your productivity by adding the ability to “alt-tab” between windows of the same application only, with the keyboard combination alt` (on US keyboards), a shortcut that should be intimately familiar to anyone that’s used OS X for any length of time.

With this update, users of EWS everywhere can enjoy the same convenience as our US friends. The hotkey for switching between windows of the same application is alt plus the key to the left of the 1 key in the numbers row:

That’s alt§ for British users without a backtick key, alt² on the French AZERTY keyboard, alt^ on German keyboards, just to name a few. Cycling backwards between windows of the same application is just as easy: it’s the same shortcut with the addition of the shift key (so altshift` on US keyboards).

Easy Window Switcher 1.1.0 is completely free and is available for download from the link below. Special thanks goes to Paul Annakin from the UK for helping with the initial UK keyboard support. Thanks to Paulot for information regarding the French keybard layout. Extreme thanks goes to an anonymous user for contributing the remaining keyboard layouts.
