    This is a major new release of UniView, bringing it up to date with the Unicode Standard version 5.0.0, but also improving the user interface and adding AJAX links to supplementary notes.


        * Updated to support Unicode 5.0.0.
        * Restyled the menu panels, moving some less used functions to pop up windows to save on horizontal space.
        * Implemented an AJAX approach for incorporating notes files. This means that the page no longer has to be reloaded to add notes. It is now also possible to add more than one set of notes at a time. Note that these changes requires a small change to the markup of notes files - the div containing the notes for display has to have a class name ‘notes’ as well as the id for the character. (see the user guide {1} for more info)
        * I added some bundled notes files - most notably myanmar. Note that these are subject to change on an ongoing basis.

    Most of the properties displayed in the character-detail panel on the right are taken from the unicodedata file at the moment. I plan to incorporate additional property information over the coming months, but wanted to release this now so that you can get information about Unicode 5 characters sooner rather than later.
