New characters?

Posted by henning April 1, 2008 in the Group General Discussion.

A question for the friends of ethymology out there: When have the last new Hanzi been "invented" and put into use? Qing-Dynasty? Republic?

Or are there even still new characters being designed today (which I actually do not expect due to the related encoding consequences)?

I ask because I am still amazed that there is 熵 out there for entropy, but maybe it had another meaning once...
