    Outdated how? As far as I can tell, Pango tends to support the latest
    version of Unicode in each release, and major releases happen every six
    months. Support for non-BMP characters has also been in Pango (and the
    rest of GNOME) for years now.

    Also, Unicode 5.1 support has been in Pango since March 2008, a short
    while before the official release of the standard update itself in early
    April 2008.
