New Keyboards and System Languages in iOS 8

Apple has added keyboards for English (India),  Bengali, Filipino, Marathi, Slovenian,  and Urdu in the new version of iOS released 9/17/14.

The settings formerly available for us additional hardware-type keyboard layouts with iOS devices are no longer available.   For example, under English these were:  us, dvorak, colemak, us international-pc, us extended, british, french, german, spanish-iso, italian, dutch, belgian.

iOS 8 is supposed to have the ability to use custom keyboard layouts, and perhaps that will help make up for that omission.

New system localizations are Hindi and Tamil.
