I have installed mactex-no-gui and it contains context and fontawesome5.

> sudo tlmgr install fontawesome5                        
tlmgr: package repository http://www.pirbot.com/mirrors/ctan/systems/texlive/tlnet (not verified: gpg unavailable)
tlmgr install: package already present: fontawesome5

Let’s say I have the following file named test.tex.



Then, the following command creates a PDF file with fontawesome 4 but not with fontawesome 5.

context test.tex --pdf-engine=xelatex 

Next, I tried the following file,



but it returned error like this.

fonts           > symbols > library 'fontawesome5' is unknown

I can’t find any solution so far. What am I missing?

ConTeXt supports version 5 of Font Awesome but the provided symbolset works only with MkIV.
