comment how can I add records to the zone file without restarting the named service?
Changing the serial number is the way to tell "hey! the records have changed" and that info will be widespread to other servers. Without changing it, you could locally force reloading of the file by shutting down and restarting BIND, but the changes won't be seen outside (as other servers/clients will rightfully use their cached date, assuming no changed have happened since the serial number is the same).

comment Dead (compose) keys not working in GTK apps since upgrade
On the other hand, modern toolkits (Qt, Gtk,...) skeep completly the X11 input layer (they use their own stuff on top of the raw X11 input). However, they also provide a way to still use the X11 input (eg: XMODIFIERS). The thing is that "none" in the context of a Gtk/Qt/... program means the default input method of the Gtk/Qt/... toolkit; while the XMODIFIERS="@im=non" (eg let X11 handle dead keys) is an "X11 input method", so the results may differ.

comment Dead (compose) keys not working in GTK apps since upgrade
Well, I know that because I worked on the input support in the "old days"; probably there is no documentation (or hard to find). The thing is that the special input methods (those using XMODIFIERS) use the same mechanism (or based on the same mechanism) as the "default" (eg: @im=non, which can be omitted); so it is one or the other, if you use a specific input method, then the default X11 one is not called.

comment How to define a Compose Key in terminal (no desktop environment)?
and that was the problem with your "å"; the console compose file MUST be in an 8bit encoding only (as kernel uses bytes to handle that). if you convert it to iso-8859-1 then loadkeys will be happy (or, as you found out, using U+00xx notation (limited to 0+0001.U+00ff)
