The updates in r1716 resolved the character set problem with a bunch of languages - Cyrillic, Greek, Turkish, Polish, German were all tested successfully - but Georgian still does not work as expected.

For an example, create a project name with Georgian characters and/or tasks with Georgian characters. You'll see gibberish symbols instead of characters.

You can use to create characters in the various character sets to see how they work.

I have a feeling that the font used doesn't have all the glyphs needed to properly show Georgian characters. Will have a look at it.

As noted on Georgian is UTF-8, but a font called sylfaen should be used.

Yes, You can use Sylfaen, but I'm not sure that Sylfaen is free. I know that there IS free fonts, because several days ago I see Ubuntu os with Georgian interface :)
