Fcitx5 has been offical released, and it is availabe in Arch.
It is also avaialbe in gentoo-zh overlay.
Previous it depends on cldr-emoji-annotation, which is in conflict with gentoo package unicode-cldr. Now the author has added the ability to depends on any cldr provider. Arch has already taken steps to follow that and replace cldr-emoji-annotation with unicode-cldr.
I am slowly working on ebuilds of Fcitx 5 and on other things...
In Gentoo, packages of Fcitx 5 will not have "5" in package name, but will use SLOT="5". Examples:
> app-i18n/fcitx SLOT="5" (https://github.com/fcitx/fcitx5)
> app-i18n/fcitx-gtk SLOT="5" (https://github.com/fcitx/fcitx5-gtk)
> app-i18n/fcitx-qt SLOT="5" (https://github.com/fcitx/fcitx5-qt)
> app-i18n/fcitx-rime SLOT="5" (https://github.com/fcitx/fcitx5-rime)
Fcitx 5 currently consists of about 22 or 23 packages at upstream level (22 + Fcitx fork of Mozc). gentoo-zh contains 8 of them.
I hope to add at least majority of these 22 packages in this month.

Thank you for your hard work. I think you can start with the most used ones. A good reference is
Any news on this one?
I've just submitted fcitx5-hangul ebuild to gentoo-zh
fcitx5 is necessary for wayland support.
FYI, fcitx5 ebuilds in gentoo-zh overlay has been updated to use SLOT.

Yeap, but pay attention that the fcitx:5, fcitx-configtools:5, fcitx-rime:5, and so on have icon files conflicts with fcitx:4.
*** Bug 872794 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Fcitx5 was official release for 1 year. Many distros have adopted it even Debian
As I see our version has stayed at 4.9999 https://packages.gentoo.org/packages/app-i18n/fcitx
Fcitx5 has fewer dependencies compared to Ibus, it's compatible better with Flatpak apps, and it supports Wayland better. Maybe it's a new IME compare to old Fcitx. But you could use SLOT as Gentoo-zh overlay did, then we can have 2 versions in the same repo, and user are free to pick it.
Please make the bump happened in the official repo. Please!
