Ergonis Software has issued PopChar X 8.1, refining the new features introduced in the recently released version 8.0 (see “PopChar X 8.0,” 16 June 2017) and adding support for the new Unicode 10.0 standard. The character discovery utility adds more search keywords for emoji characters to aid searching, improves the speed of collecting ligatures, resolves a crash when running in Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard related to ligature extraction, fixes a couple of bugs related to searching for characters, and reduces the overall memory footprint. (€29.99 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update from version 8.0, 5.0 MB, release notes, 10.6+)
