Description Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis 2019-03-28 17:55:13 UTC
dev-libs/libebml-1.3.7 bundles copy of dev-libs/utfcpp (snapshot from commit 1537543999978d3a0464560a9a940d6140c6ba59 between release 2.3.5 and release 2.3.6) since this commit:
EbmlUnicodeString: use UTF8-CPP library for UTF-8/UCS2 conversions

The custom code for converting between UTF-8-encoded std::strings and
the internal UCS2-encoded buffer did not handle code points > U+FFFF
correctly — meaning the code neither created nor read surrogate pairs
for such code points.

Instead of re-implementing even more functionality, we now include the
header-only library "utf8-cpp" and use its well-tested functionality
for the conversions.
