It is like that now, for test. The conventional keys have not yet been removed. Both sets work.
No harm in testing. It is like that for test now, in addition to the other sets of keys explained, HOME (triple f/g) does a simple Numlock on/off. Monitor it in the status line.
I tried to keep the top three lines clean for ALPHA, including ENTER. No other reason.

Be sure to delete the binary.bin file from the C43 folder prior to running.
Thanks Dani for the help compiling!

Be sure to do CLR/RESET after resetting the first time.
The C43 firmware still requires DM42 DMCP firmware 3.18 or 3.20.
I have the following changes:
I received a bug report showing that SIG display mode does not work for certain values. That was fixed. I was so happy to see more interest in the SIG display mode which I like so much.
Furthermore, I now detail the revision number directly in the stack as a string. This is useful to me having two DM42’s with differing firmware.
I updated the HOME menu keyboard replicas - it was a bit outdated, now fixed.
Then, the regarding the multitude of locks discussed here, the complicated text of yesterday can be simplified as follows:
f[Dn] and f[Up]: Case & num lock. This is a double lock function. First operation does case, then it does Numlock, as follows:
1. works as expected without Numlock, changing the case.
2. If you are in Upper case already, then the first f[Up] does Numlock.
3. If you have Numlock on, the first f[Dn] clears the Numlock, and back to rule 1.
Numlock is optional here. The normal f shift does the normal limited next digit as 43S-usual.
g[Dn] and g[Up]: sub/sup lock.
1. as expected, activates super- or subscript, locks this mode. Not as per WP43S-normal.
2. The first g[Dn], or clearing of Numlock, or changing of case, clears the super/sub lock as well. Back to rule 1. Setting Numlock does not clear the super/subscript.
An attempt was made to indicate in the place of the WP43S-normal ⍺/Α indicator in the status line, what is happening in terms of the modes.
“N/n” is used for number digits, indicating super- and subscript positions. N meaning locked, and n meaning next character only.
"Ω/𝛚" is used for greek, indicating case. Always next character only.
"A/a" is used for alphabetic.
Beware even if it shows "A" in superscript in the status bar, there remains only a few ("T" and all the numeric digits) in the font for that combination, and it will simply (as per WP43S-norm) disregard the superscript mode and print the normal character. Subscripts also have limited characters, but more more than superscript though.The lists of available characters is shown in the WP43S U V0.17 p196/328, see excerpt below.

Edit: add the snippet from the OM.
Edit²: corrected sloppy writing.
