Mountain View, CA, USA – September 19, 2011 – The Unicode® Consortium today announced the start of beta review for the forthcoming Unicode 6.1.0. All beta feedback must be submitted by October 24, 2011.
Unicode is the foundation for all modern software and communications around the world, including all modern operating systems, browsers, and smart phones; modern web protocols (HTML, XML,...); and internationalized domain names. Thus it is important to ensure a smooth transition to each new version of the Unicode Standard. Software developers and other experts are strongly encouraged to review the beta data files and documentation for Unicode 6.1.0 carefully, and to provide any feedback regarding errors or other issues to the Unicode Consortium. Software developers can also get an early start in testing their programs with the beta data files so they they will be ready for the release of Unicode 6.1.0 in February, 2012.
