    Hi!

    What does Unicode support mean? TTEngine is turned on but I was not able to render any UTF-8
    Just a promise?

    That has since been isolated into Remote Shell. While MUICON can render UTF-8, that requires careful setup and will likely break your regular AmigaDOS-style shell commands.

    Aha, but it's not a secret? ;-)
    By the way why did you drop muicon.catalog support?

    Simple: I printf a UTF-8 and I want to see this character, not two other.
    Like in OWB.

    That is not supported in AmigaDOS shells. You'll have to convert the output into the local codepage. You can pipe via the convert command.

    Well, "local codepage" sounds like the opposite of "UTF8 I/O support".

    I have disabled UTF-8 terminal for my Links port

    any chance to get real support?

    If you are making a port, especially a proper libnix one, do use charsets.library and convert output to the local codepage. It makes no sense to add UTF support into an AmigaDOS compatible shell. It's either compatible or not.
