- Update to version 9.0.01
* This is the first release for Unicode 9.0.0, which The
Unicode Consortium formally released on 21 June 2016. In
addition to complete Basic Multilingual Plane coverage,
this release includes all scripts that can easily be drawn
in a 16-by-16 grid in the Supplemental Multilingual Plane
as of Unicode 9.0. This SMP coverage is a major milestone
for Unifont.
+ Johnnie Weaver has contributed many Supplemental
Multilingual Plane glyphs, allowing completion of all SMP
scripts that are easily drawn in a 16-by-16 pixel grid::
U+0104B0..U+0104FF Osage
U+011280..U+0112AF Multani
U+0112B0..U+0112FF Khudawadi
U+011600..U+01165F Modi
U+011700..U+01173F Ahom
U+0118A0..U+0118FF Warang Citi
U+011AC0..U+011AFF Pau Cin Hau
U+011C00..U+011C6F Bhaiksuki
U+011C70..U+011CBF Marchen
U+016A40..U+016A6F Mro
U+016AD0..U+016AFF Bassa Vah
U+01E000..U+01E02F Glagolitic Supplement
U+01E900..U+01E95F Adlam
+ Terence Eden contributed the new power symbols in the range
U+23FB..U+23FE. Terence proposed adding those glyphs to
Unicode, and got them adopted in the Unicode 9.0.0 release.
Paul Hardy drew the rest of the glyphs added to this
release. This included a complete redrawing of the Unified
Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics (U+1400..U+167F) and the
Unified Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics Extended
(U+18B0..U+18FF) scripts. This also included rotating the
Mongolian and Phags Pa scripts, as per changes of The
Unicode Consortium in changing their default representation
from vertical writing to horizontal writing. Paul added
these scripts:
U+1C80..U+1C8F Cyrillic Extended-C
U+011300..U+01137F Grantha
U+011400..U+01147F Newa
U+011480..U+0114DF Tirhuta
U+011660..U+01167F Mongolian Supplement
U+016FE0..U+016FFF Ideographic Symbols and Punctuation
U+01BC00..U+01BC9F Duployan
U+01E800..U+01E8DF Mende Kikakui
U+01F900..U+01F9FF Supplemental Symbols and Pictographs
