CJK is a macro package for LaTeX, providing simultaneous support for
various Asian scripts in many encodings (including Unicode):

  Chinese (both traditional and simplified)

A special add-on feature is an interface to the Emacs editor
(cjk-enc.el) which gives simultaneous, easy-to-use support to a bunch
of other scripts in addition to the above:

  Latin-based scripts

See below for the relevant snippet from the history file.



Version 4.7.0:
                    A new encoding `HK' (C05) is available for Hong Kong's
                    HKSCS-2004, used in combination with Big 5.

                    `UTF8' encoding now supports full Unicode (up to
                    U+10FFFF). Subfont planes for ranges greater than U+FFFF
                    consist of four hexadecimal digits (for example
                    `foo025E' which covers U+25E00-U+25EFF). The \Unicode
                    command (and \CJKchar) has been extended to accept
                    Unicode values greater than U+FFFF.
                      Support Unicode encoded bookmarks if the hyperref
                      package is used.
                      Automatically generate ToUnicode cmaps for pdftex
                      (tested with pdftex version 3.141592-1.30.4-2.2; it
                      currently doesn't work with virtual fonts).

                    Caption files in UTF-8 encoding have been added; the
                    files are identical to the encoding-specific versions.

                      ko-Hang2  another version using Hangul
                      ko-Hani   Korean using Hanja

                    UTF-8 input character 0x80 was handled only partially.

                      The package didn't preserve `\ding' which is defined
                      in pifont.sty, causing problems with older versions of
                      the hyperref package and its `hpdftex' driver option.

                      Make it work with font definition files (like the ones
                      from the fourier package) which expect that the
                      loading-settings are called only once.

                    The use of caption files within the `scrartcl' class
                    made \chapter a defined command (instead of reporting
                    an error).

                    With the koma-script classes, all CJK caption files
                    except for Korean produced bad looking TOC entries for
