# Bug Tracker

I’m currently working on a major new version of the datatool package. This may take a while. Please be patient.

## Description

In order to address issues with UTF-8 characters occurring at the start of \makefirstuc, the underlying code needs to be rewritten using new LaTeX3 commands.

## MWE

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{mfirstuc}

\begin{document}
\makefirstuc{élan}

\end{document}


## Evaluation

Fixed in v2.08. If you also use glossaries, make sure you update to glossaries v4.50 as well. If you use glossaries-extra, you will also need to update to glossaries-extra v1.49, and if you use bib2gls, you will also need to update to bib2gls v3.0.
