December update breaks VRC-1100 keyboard.xml mapping

Proper support for the VRC-1100 dongle was added in the December release and this was mentioned in the release announcement:

Effectively, this means that the device is now correctly recognised as a remote rather than a keyboard.

As a result, all the buttons now work out of the box.

There is a long thread here in case you’re interested:

However it does mean that if you had custom <keyboard> mappings then you’ll need to perform a one-off exercise to convert these to <remote> mappings.

I think there’s an addon that can help in this regard, though personally I don’t use this, as I prefer to edit the keymap file manually.
