Noteworthy changes in release 2.3.4 (2022-10-23) [stable]

* Support for Unicode 15.0.0.

  We now use's IDNA2008 tables rather than IANA's.
  See <> and
  for rationale, which can be summarized into

  1) IANA are still on 2019-era Unicode version 12 and we wish to
     support Unicode version 12-15,
  2) consistency with some other implementations,
  3) the only incompatibility related to U+19DA is deemed to have minor
     real-world consequences.

  Thus we break backwards compatibility for U+19DA in this release
  compared against libidn2 0.11..2.3.3 thus reverting back to the
  libidn2 <= 0.11 behaviour.
  We decided to not bump ABI version and believe this is the best choice
  going forward as well for minor internal non-API related ABI changes.

* Gnulib updated and now libunistring-optional is used.

  This allows you to force libidn2 to use internal libunistring with the
  following command: ./configure --with-included-libunistring
