      Description

      Summary

      Support the Unicode version 12.1 in the JDK.

      Problem

      Characters which have been assigned since Unicode 11.0 cannot be used in the JDK.

      Solution

      Incorporate Unicode 12.1 that assigned 555 characters and 4 new scripts since Unicode 11.0. Detailed changes are described in the Unicode Consortium's websites 12.0 and 12.1

      java.text.Bidi and java.text.Normalizer classes will be upgraded to 12.0 level of Unicode Annex #9 and #15, respectively.

      Support for the Unicode extended grapheme clusters in java.util.regex.Pattern will be upgraded. It employs the Unicode Annex #29 "Unicode Text Segmentation" which will be upgraded from version 8.0 to 12.0.

      Specification

      Change the following paragraph in java.lang.Character class' description from:

      * <p>
      * The Java SE 13 Platform uses character information from version 11.0
      * of the Unicode Standard, plus the Japanese Era code point,
      * {@code U+32FF}, from the first version of the Unicode Standard
      * after 11.0 that assigns the code point.

      to:

      * <p>
      * Character information is based on the Unicode Standard, version 12.1.

      Add the following new java.lang.Character.UnicodeScript enum constants:

      /**
       * Unicode script "Elymaic".
       * @since 13  
       */
      ELYMAIC,
      
      /**
       * Unicode script "Nandinagari".
       * @since 13  
       */
      NANDINAGARI,
      
      /**
       * Unicode script "Nyiakeng Puachue Hmong".
       * @since 13  
       */
      NYIAKENG_PUACHUE_HMONG,
      
      /**
       * Unicode script "Wancho".
       * @since 13  
       */
      WANCHO,

      Add the following new java.lang.Character.UnicodeBlock fields:

      /**

      public static final UnicodeBlock SYMBOLS_AND_PICTOGRAPHS_EXTENDED_A
