Public bug reported:
Libunistring is updated by FSF for every new version of Unicode. The
current version of libunistring is 0.9.6 and has support for unicode
version 9. The version shipped with Ubuntu is 0.9.3 which supports
Unicode 7. Since the lib was last updated Unicode has added more than
14,000 new code points which includes emoji support. Because of the
number of Ubuntu packages that depend on libunistring I believe that it
should be updated every time a new version is released, which is usually
yearly following the release schedule of Unicode versions.
Libunistring in Ubuntu has not been updated since 2010.
Thank You for Ubuntu.
