Now that vanilla Minecraft includes many of IC's features, it seems to be putting the future of our beloved IC mod into danger (http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/123409-123-wdmods-creepers-sneak-and-chat/page__st__1800). But we still don't have vanilla key binding. Regardless of whether IC updates, there is an alternative way to key bind- the Macro/Key Bind Mod (http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/467504-123-macro-keybind-mod-v085/). In some ways this is a step up from IC, as it has an interface and more ability to customize. This mod has not yet updated to 1.2.4 (I haven't had a chance to test it), but it has an active developer and probably will soon. Please consider allowing this mod onto the approved list. Even if Improved Chat updates, it would be nice to have an alternative.
