On the default keyboard if I long-press the o letter the letter ő (o with double accent) is not in the list of accented characters. Same with u and ű.

Please note: I'm talking about ő / ű and NOT ö / ü

This issue is still present as of

My first guess was that it's due to Hungarian not being one of the (as of yet) supported languages (those available in Settings/Languages), but then I checked, and both ð and þ (used in e.g. Icelandic, but in none of the supported languages AFAIK) are available, so ő should definitely be available.

As far as I remember, thorn and the other letter (can't remember the name) are included in the ascii extended, regardless of Icelandic support.

In which layout you want it? QML definition is simply .. I will make patched version for you as workaround before official solution.

As workaround for people who need this now, modified en layout with added both characters is here

Thank you! I'll probably create my own layout (my language has a lot of frequently used accented characters) but I would like the default layout to contain this letter too - I don't see any reason why it shouldn't

You don't have to create it from scratch. CsTom has already created a layout, maybe just this needs to be updated.

The issue has been solved in - the default English keyboard now has ő and ű.
