"Is there a plan to integrate the tab key, cursor keys, esc, etc. also in
this HTML5 client as it is integrated in ssh tools like iSSH
Also, I tested with our physical Target Bluetooth keyboard today. It doesn't

Fixed in revision 27730.
Updated in revision 27817.

Perhaps worth noting is that none of these keys (except tab) work with an

they're being captured/ignored by iOS. Pressing ESC exits to iOS's main menu
screen for example. I'm not sure there's much we can do about this ATM, so
