11 May 2019: GNU Unifont 12.1.01 is now available.  This release
includes the Reiwa Japanese era glyph (U+32FF), which is the one
change in the Unicode 12.1.0 standard that was released on 7 May 2019.
The Reiwa era began on 1 May 2019.

Unifont provides fonts with a glyph for each printable code point in
the Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane, as well as wide coverage of the
Supplementary Multilingual Plane (Unicode Plane 1) and some ConScript
Unicode Registry (CSUR) and Under CSUR (UCSUR) glyphs.

Rebecca Bettencourt contributed glyphs for many scripts from the Under
ConScript Unicode Registry (which she maintains) that have been added
for this Unifont release.  Also, David Corbett and Johnnie Weaver
improved some Plane 1 glyphs.

The Unifont package includes TrueType fonts for all of these ranges,
and BDF and PCF fonts for the Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane.  There
is also a specialized PSF font for using GNU APL in console mode on
GNU/Linux systems.

In addition to the Unifont package's new glyphs, some C programs have

details are in the ChangeLog file.
