I found that DSKY in NASSP can be controlled by numpad (with SHIFT pressed).
Numbers are numbers,
/ and * are for verb and noun,
+ and - are for plus and minus,
ENTER is ENTER,
but what about other keys. When i pressed numpad DEL (dot) i heard click but i have no idea which DSKY key i pressed :-P Also PG UP and HOME seems to click something, but what are they clicking? I gess they will be PRO, KEY REL and RESET but which one is which?

Well, is there anybody who can explain all keystrokes for NASSP? Would be nice to know all of them. Also making some keyboard guide in PDF could be a great idea. I am aware about optics related keys (WSAD and Q and E), those optics related keyboard keys seems to be the only documented keyboard shortcuts in NASSP documentation.

A keyboard guide is a good idea, both for the wiki and as a document for the release. Most of that information should alread ybe available in the wiki, but having it in one place makes sense.

Here the list of commands for the CSM (QWERTY keyboard):

W: Optics up
S: Optics down
A: Optics left
D: Optics right
Q: Optics mark
E: Optics reject
V: Change Sextant View Mode to DualView

TAB, 1-9: MCC CAPCOM interface

Shift+Decimal (Numpad): DSKY Clear
Shift+Page Up: DSKY Reset
Shift+Home: DSKY Key Release
Shift+Enter (Numpad): DSKY Enter
Shift+Divide (Numpad): DSKY Verb
Shift+Multiply (Numpad): DSKY Noun
Shift+Add (Numpad): DSKY Plus
Shift+Substract (Numpad): DSKY Minus
Shift+End: DSKY Proceed
Shift+Numpad0-9: DSKY 1-9

Shift+W:  Minimum impulse controller, pitch down
Shift+S:  Minimum impulse controller, pitch up
Shift+A:  Minimum impulse controller, yaw left
Shift+D:  Minimum impulse controller, yaw right
Shift+Q:  Minimum impulse controller, roll left
Shift+E:  Minimum impulse controller, roll right

I don't think the minimum impulse controller is actually implemented, but it does set the input channel bits in the CMC, so it might work with the AGC in control. Never tried it. I will add a list for the LM here later. Here the list for the LM:

The DSKY controls are the same as in the CSM.

A: Cycle AOT detent up
D: Cycle AOT deten down
W: AOT reticle up
Alt+W: AOT reticle up (slow rate)
S: AOT reticle down
Alt+S: AOT reticle down (slow rate)
Q: Mark X
Y: Mark Y
E: Reject
Minus: Increase Descent Rate
Equals: Decrease Descent Rate

Zero (Numpad): Throttle up
Decimal (Numpad): Throttle down
Minus (Numpad): Toggle Engine Stop Button
Plus (Numpad): Depress Engine Start Button

Are there any changes of the LM keystrokes with latest 8.0 alpha?
AGS is working so i would expect added keystrokes for DEDA.

I don't think any new keystrokes have been added since my post above. But you are right, the DEDA keys should be added.

Also it would be nice to add some more key commands:

The abort button.
The abort stage button (first press lifts cover, second actually presses button and third resets the button to initial position).
Switching between AGS and PGNS.
Switching between auto/manual throttle.
Switching between "normal"/ATT HOLD mode of PGNS and AGS depending on whch system is in control.
Switching between hi/lo mult for x pointer.

Also on configuration page there would be nice to have possibility to use HOTAS throttle (Z axis) as throttle when throttle/jets lever (slider) is in throttle position.

BTW: Engine START/STOP buttons should have red backlit from what i have read from one of LM documents.
