Bug #9092

Update Unicode data to Unicode Version 7.0

Added by duerst (Martin Dürst) over 7 years ago. Updated over 6 years ago.

Target version:
ruby -v:


As done regularly, Ruby should be updated to the newest version of Unicode, 6.3. This year's updates on the Unicode side are mostly in the area of bidi (bidirectional text), which doesn't affect Ruby, but there are also a few new characters and a few property changes.
