These are mainly few more Emoji characters, Bitcoin symbol (U+20BF), Typicon marks and few symbols in the range of U1F900 to U1F9FF.
  • IBus typing booster Multilingual support –IBus typing booster is now updated in Fedora to provide updated translations, Unicode 10.0.0 support, emoji annotations from CLDR.

Test Days: Internationalization (i18n) features of Fedora 26

All this week, we will be testing for  i18n features in Fedora 26. Those are as follows:

  • Fontconfig Cache – The fontconfig cache files are placed onto /var/cache/fontconfig now. this seems incompatible with the ostree model. so this is a proposal to move it to /usr/lib/fontconfig/cache.
  • Libpinyin 2.0 Now libpinyin provides 1-3 sentence candidates instead of one sentence candidate, which will greatly improve the guessed sentence correction rate.
There has been further improvements in features introduced in previous versions of Fedora those are as follows:
  • Emoji typing – In the computing world, it’s rare to have person not know about emoji. Before, it was difficult to type  emoji in Fedora. Now, we have an emoji typing feature in Fedora 26.
  • Unicode 9.0 – With each release, Unicode introduces new characters and scripts to its encoding standard. We have a good number of additions in Unicode 9.0. Important libraries are updated to get the new additions into Fedora.
  • IBus typing booster Multilingual support – IBus typing booster started providing multilingual support (typing more than one language using single IME – no need to switch).

Other than this, we also need to make sure all other languages works well specifically input, output, storage and printing.
