German+Hungarian question

I thought that in the new, much hated German Rechtschreibung Ringeles
"ß" also had to be written "ss".
If that's true, Germany itself has become a "German unfriendly
environment" too! We're talking about German as the language here, not the
people, of course ;-)

Btw how do Magyars do that in Hungarian unfriendly environments? Because
they have two kinds of umlauts for u and o: ü and ö, and u and o with ",
large umlaut accents, like a double accent aigu, for long [2:] and [y:].
For ö and ü, oe and ue can be used, but what for the long umlauts?
oee and uee? ooe and uue?
