A general description is here.
CHANGES IN R-devel NEW FEATURES
The parser now treats ‘\Unnnnnnnn’ escapes larger than ‘"\U10FFFF"’ as
an error as they cannot be represented by valid UTF-8.
Where such escapes are use for outputting non-printable characters, 6
(not 8) hex digits are used (as it was decided that the first two would
always be zero).
CHANGES IN R-devel BUG FIXES
Parsing strings containing UTF-16 surrogate pairs such as
‘"\uD834\uDD1E"’ works better on some (uncommon) platforms.
