Dear Unifont Enthusiasts,

GNU Unifont 12.0.01 is now available.  This is a major release
incorporating glyphs added in Unicode 12.0.0, which also was just
released today.

Significant changes in this version include contributions from David
Corbett and Johnnie Weaver.  Notably, the Unifont Upper font has now
reached 11,000 Unicode Plane 1 glyphs.  New Unicode script ranges
introduced in Unicode Standard version 12.0.0 that are included in
this release are (in order of appearance in Unifont Upper): Elymaic,
Tamil Supplement, Nandinagari, Egyptian Hieroglyph Format Controls,
Small Kana Extension, Nyiakeng Puachue Hmong, Wancho, Ottoman Siyaq
Numbers, Chess Symbols, and Symbols and Pictographs Extended-A. Full
details are in the ChangeLog file.

This release also includes two new programs: unibmpbump and
unihexrotate. unibmpbump, by Paul Hardy, adjusts images created by
unihex2png but saved as Bitmap (".bmp") format files, for processing
with unibmp2hex. unihexrotate, by David Corbett, rotates a set of
glyphs in Unifont ".hex" format clockwise or counterclockwise by a
specified number of quarter turns.
