Unicode 5.1 has support for several previously unsupported languages and scripts.  More languages is a Good Thing.

This is a placeholder bug; obviously, implementing this will involve working with a lot of dependencies, including:

* general web browser uptake of Unicode 5 and 5.1
* Zebra
* Perl
* Perl modules such as MARC::Charset

In respect of perl support:
release 5.10 supports Unicode 5.0
release 5.12 supports Unicode 5.2

Actual time not defined. Setting to 0.0

Comment 1 Ian Walls 2011-12-04 17:02:02 UTC
Updating bug report:  Unicode 6 has been released, including support for the Indian Rupee symbol.  See http://unicode.org/versions/Unicode6.0.0/ for more details.

Koha should support as current a Unicode version as possible.
Comment 2 Colin Campbell 2011-12-05 12:52:37 UTC
Unicode 6.0 is supported as of perl 5.14.0
Comment 3 Marc Véron 2016-01-05 15:42:51 UTC
Is this placeholder bug still necessary?
