The Unicode Technical Committee has posted a new issue for public review and comment. Details are on the following web page:

http://www.unicode.org/review/

Review period for the new item closes on October 24, 2011.

Please see the page for links to discussion and relevant documents. Briefly, the new issue is:

PRI #203 Proposed Update for UTS #10: Unicode Collation Algorithm
http://www.unicode.org/review/pri203/

This proposed update aligns with Unicode 6.1, and includes the following changes:

A major revision to the ordering of variable characters into groups, separating punctuation and symbols. Some other characters have changed ordering as well.
A new option for sorting, IgnoreSP, that ignores (shifts) only whitespace and punctuation (and not general symbols)
Clarifications or fixes to text on soft-hyphen, contiguous weights, and collation grapheme clusters.
A new section on asymmetric search.
Review notes for new UCA verification tables, and several other areas where the text will be changed.

To supply feedback on this issue, see
