Misc #15750


Switch Unicode Version 12.1.0 back from beta to final

Added by duerst (Martin Dürst) about 5 years ago. Updated almost 5 years ago.


The final version of Unicode 12.1.0 will be published on May 7 (May 8 Japanese timezone). We should make sure that we switch from UNICODE_BETA = YES back to UNICODE_BETA = NO.

However, this has to be done very carefully. We have to make sure that there are no substantial changes in the files we depend on. If there are no such changes, the change should be easy. If there are such changes, we have to make sure they actually get downloaded on environments (esp. CI) that need them.

We will need changes to tool/downloader.rb; in particular, the following code

          raise "Although Unicode is not in beta, file #{index_file} exists. " +
                "Remove all files in this directory and in .downloaded-cache/ " +
                "because they may be leftovers from the beta period."

will have to be removed or deactivated temporarily.
