Unicode 8.0 Support Added To GNOME's GLib
Within the latest development code of GNOME's key GLib library leading up to GNOME 3.20 is Unicode 8.0 support.
Unicode 8.0 as released back in June adds 7,716 characters with six new scripts, many new symbols, and various character additions.
Per this commit today by Red Hat's Matthias Clasen, GLib's Unicode support has been updated to version 8.0. Clasen wrote, "Regenerate data tables from the Unicode Character Database, add new scripts, and update tests to include some of the new data."
Huawei Watch Review: Best Android Wear Smartwatch Available
The Huawei Watch currently offers the best option on the Android Wear platform. The Huawei Watch looks elegant and offers great design as well as multiple attractive style options depending on the buyer’s cash flow. Even iPhone owners can take a look. If an iPhone owner prefers a stainless steel round watch, then the Huawei Watch is a usable option at a lower price than the Stainless Steel Apple Watch. Android Wear works well on iPhone, but does not give users the same level of integration. The most important features work fine, including notifications and fitness tracking.
We give the Huawei Watch a hearty recommendation. It is worth paying a little more for this attractive and well-designed Android Wear smartwatch.
