6 March 2022

GNU Unifont 14.0.02 is now available.  This is a major stable release,
and reflects additions made in the Unicode 14.0.0 Standard as well as
modifications to glyphs in the preliminary Unifont 14.0.01 release.

Unifont provides fonts with a glyph for each printable code point in
the Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane (Unicode Plane 0), as well as
wide coverage of the Supplementary Multilingual Plane (Unicode Plane
1) and some ConScript Unicode Registry (CSUR) and Under CSUR (UCSUR)

The unifont_jp TrueType font also includes the 303 kanji from JIS X
0213 that are in Unicode Plane 2.

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.

This release maintains full coverage of the Unicode Basic Multilingual
Plane, plus over 12,600 glyphs for scripts in the Unicode
Supplementary Multilingual Plane.

The Unifont web page contains
detailed descriptions of these and other additions for this release.

The public domain font Izumi16 is a JIS X 0213-encoded BDF font
covering JIS planes 1 and 2.  In Unifont, its kanji glyphs have been
mapped to code points in Unicode planes 0 and 2 (the only Unicode
Plane 2 glyphs to appear in a Unifont release).  This provides
complete coverage of JIS X 0213 in a free Unicode font, except for the
JIS katakana glyphs that do not have a one-to-one mapping in Unicode.
More information about this mapping is available at
