I just have written a teckit map and applied it to the sample tex file.
The map file is quite simple as follows:

LHSName  "Jamo"
RHSName  "Jamo-ZWJ"
Class [MODLC] = ( U+1100..U+1112 )
Class [MODVO] = ( U+1161..U+1175 )
Class [OLDTC] = ( U+11C3..U+11FF U+D7CB..U+D7FB )
[MODLC]=lc [MODVO]=vo [OLDTC]=tc > @lc U+200D @vo @tc

Then all is ok.
I am satisfied now and personally do not have any complaints about the
new version.
