+ * The Java SE 8 Platform uses character information from version 6.2
+ * of the Unicode Standard, with two extensions. First, the Java SE 8 Platform
+ * allows an implementation of class {@code Character} to use the Japanese Era
+ * code point, {@code U+32FF}, from the first version of the Unicode Standard
+ * after 6.2 that assigns the code point. Second, in recognition of the fact
+ * that new currencies appear frequently, the Java SE 8 Platform allows an
+ * implementation of class {@code Character} to use the Currency Symbols
+ * block from version 10.0 of the Unicode Standard. Consequently, the
+ * behavior of fields and methods of class {@code Character} may vary across
+ * implementations of the Java SE 8 Platform when processing the aforementioned
+ * code points ( outside of version 6.2 ), except for the following methods
+ * that define Java identifiers:
+ * {@link #isJavaIdentifierStart(int)}, {@link #isJavaIdentifierStart(char)},
+ * {@link #isJavaIdentifierPart(int)}, and {@link #isJavaIdentifierPart(char)}.
+ * Code points in Java identifiers must be drawn from version 6.2 of
+ * the Unicode Standard.
