PopChar X 5.1

If you find yourself hunting for unusual Unicode characters, you’re in luck, because Ergonis Software has released PopChar X 5.1 . This latest update of the venerable font utility introduces support for Unicode 6.0. Also included in the new version are better in-software upgrade options, a new contextual menu item for removing recent characters, and the removal of some “irritating” console messages (Ergonis’s term, not mine!). Several fixes are also part of the 5.1 release: problems with inserting characters into Espresso and Filemaker Pro are addressed, as are errant beeps at midnight, a problem after waking your computer from sleep, and a Mac OS X bug that caused issues when copying and pasting certain bitmap pictures.
