[RHEL6] [tracking] Unicode 5.2 support
Last modified: 2014-10-27 14:16:09 EDT
Unicode 5.2.0 revision beta is out with final release planned in October 09.
We probably need to support it for RHEL 6 even if after 6.0.
So this bug is to track progress on this.
Beta release is available at http://www.unicode.org/Public/5.2.0/
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release. Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release. This request is not yet committed for
Where does this requirement for Unicode 5.2 come from? That person or organization also has to explain what is supposed to be changed. I see no difference from 5.1 to 5.2 in the files which I always follow for glibc.
So, what is missing?
Unicode 5.2 there are addition of few new characters
U+0900, U+094E, U+0979, U+097A
there are some more..
may be from glibc point of view we need to update localedata i18n file
not much sure but might be there are more thing, please let us know if anything more require, will prepare patch for that
Moving tracker back to distribution.
If glibc needs changes we should file a bug upstream
and open a RHEL6 bug and add it here.
Still missing glyphs (from Comment #5)
ऀ - U+0900
ॎ - U+094E
ॹ - U+0979
ॺ - U+097A
hmm, lets start this first with lohit fonts
then we will test against rendering engine pango, qt and icu and ime's and will open if any bugs
i will add shape soon to lohit upstream
Shapes are now available in Lohit 2.5.3 version. Moving to modified.
The above mentioned codepoints are now appearing with proper shape in RHEL7 Beta. Verified. Screen shot attached, character inputs marked with red colored box.
