The layout.conf file errors with unicode are fixed. I don't want to hold back the release but there is one problem still with Thai bible names in the 'locales.d' folder. I'll let you decide if it should be fixed before this particular release.

When I switch to a Thai configuration, the following errors show up on startup. It was slightly edited from the Indonesian conf file -- I don't know why it complained about the one Indonesian spelling unless there were some hidden characters.
VerseKey::Book: เธญเธ... does not have a matching toupper abbrevs entry! book number returned was: 0(1)

VerseKey::Book: 1 Raja-raja does not have a matching toupper abbrevs entry! book number returned was: 0(1)
After that the program starts. It even displays Thai book name in drop-down box but when I try to go to that book, it jumps to Revelation (the last book in list). It also displays the book reference in Thai characters in the Commentary window if Genesis was previously picked in German/English. When I try to change the chapter, it jumps to Revelation again.

I remember a similar problem when using non-utf8 with Thai previously. You made an adjustment to the code to not try to capitalize Thai words or something like that.
