Display of multibyte characters in Julia 0.7.0-alpha

question

#1

On Windows 10 under Julia 0.7.0-alpha I have the following problem with displaying of multibyte characters:

julia> "∀"
"���"

I have this problem in console as well as in Visual Studio emulated console.

On Julia 0.6.3 everything prints correctly under the same setup:

"∀"

Does anyone have any advice how to solve this issue?
