Businesses now are required to comply with standards and integrate Unicode-based technologies such as Java. Today’s applications must support different character encodings like ASCII, Latin-1, Windows 1252 or UTF-8. Most encodings can represent only a few languages, but UTF-8 handles any language, including Chinese, French and Arabic.
OpenROAD 6.0, available only on Windows, enables OpenROAD developers to enhance their applications to meet these new business requirements. The functionality provided with OpenROAD 6.0 will be available on UNIX/Linux in OpenROAD 6.2.
