Unicode on AmigaOS3.1

I spent a few evenings tinkering Topaz 8 to unicode for ucode system.
For now there is Latin-1, Russian, some Greek characters, most mathematical symbols and frames (under testing ...)

and the trick to read unicode files and UTF-8

It should only work AmigaOS3.1 and up, need the ucode package and some glyphs (or thirty megabytes). Just assign ucode: where it is, and it works without changing anything more in the system.
I forgot to say that these marvels run on a 68000 (Minimig !)
So I can say today: No, the Amiga is not dead, you can even use unicode on it.
