GNU Unifont is a Unicode font with a glyph for every visible Unicode
Basic Multilingual Plane code point and more, with supporting utilities
to modify the font. The Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane covers the
first 65,536 (or 2^16) Unicode code points.

As there have been many upstream releases with many changes since the

* Font glyphs are now dual-licensed under the SIL Open Font
  License version 1.1, in addition to the GNU GPL version 2+
  with the GNU Font Embedding Exception.
* Many glyphs in these ranges were re-aligned so the dominant
  horizontal line would be positioned in row 7, counting from
  the bottom.  Some glyphs were redrawn.
  - U+2190..U+21FF Arrows
  - U+2200..U+23FF Mathematical Operators
  - U+2400..U+24FF Miscellaneous Technical
  - U+25A0..U+25FF Geometric Shapes
  - APL operators such as the tacks and jot were not modified,
    so as not to alter alignments of glyphs that APL superimposes
    on each other.
* U+2200..U+23FF Mathematical Operators: redrew slashes for
  negated operators from vertical lines to slanted lines.
* Added three new Under ConScript Unicode Registry (UCSUR) Scripts:
  - U+EB40..U+EB5F Standard Galactic
  - U+EB60..U+EB9F Braille Extended
  - U+EBA0..U+EBDF Cistercian Numerals

    glyphs in unifont_jp replaced with glyphs from the public
    domain izmb16.bdf font.
  - U+FF61..U+FF64 (Halfwidth CKJ Punctuation) and U+FF65..U+FF9F
    (Halfwidth Katakana Variations): glyphs in unifont and unifont_jp
