Unicode 8.0 Support Added To GNOME's GLib
Within the latest development code of GNOME's key GLib library leading up to GNOME 3.20 is Unicode 8.0 support.
Unicode 8.0 as released back in June adds 7,716 characters with six new scripts, many new symbols, and various character additions.
Per this commit today by Red Hat's Matthias Clasen, GLib's Unicode support has been updated to version 8.0. Clasen wrote, "Regenerate data tables from the Unicode Character Database, add new scripts, and update tests to include some of the new data."
