      Description

      Summary

      Support the Unicode Standard version 14.0.0 in the JDK.

      Problem

      Keeping up with the latest Unicode Standard is imperative. Otherwise, interoperability with other platforms would be problematic.

      Solution

      Incorporate Unicode 14.0 that assigned 838 characters, 12 new blocks, and 5 new scripts since Unicode 13.0. Detailed changes are described in the Unicode Consortium's 14.0 website.

      java.text.Bidi and java.text.Normalizer classes will be upgraded to 14.0 level of Unicode Annex #9 and #15, respectively.

      Support for the Unicode extended grapheme clusters in java.util.regex.Pattern will be upgraded to 14.0 level of the Unicode Annex #29 "Unicode Text Segmentation."
