http://tavultesoft.com/beta has the free download of Developer 9. The beta has the license key requirement but you can obtain a free perpetual license key on that page as well.
While Keyman Developer 9 is version still in beta, it is stable and we are finalising the documentation and a few loose ends. The release version will continue to be free.
Version 9 includes support for building keyboards for Windows, web, mobile web, iOS and Android, with Mac OS X coming shortly. The web and mobile web versions run with KeymanWeb 2.0 which is open source at http://www.keyman.com/developer/keymanweb. Keyman apps for mobile platforms can be found at keyman.com as well.
