From which we may deduce that all of the "Accepted" and "Pending"
characters on http://www.unicode.org/unicode/alloc/Pipeline.html
are slated to appear in Unicode 3.0, since they add up to the
requisite number of new non-Han characters (3741).
In summary, this means that Unicode 3.0 should include:
the Syriac, Thaana, Sinhala, Extended Tibetan, Myanmar,
Ethiopic, Cherokee, Unified Canadian Syllabics, Ogham,
Runic, Khmer, Mongolian, Braille, Extended Bopomofo,
and Yi scripts, plus the 214 KangXi radicals, for a total
of 38 scripts;
the 6582 Han characters from Unihan Extension A;
35 new Latin letters, 6 new modifier letters, 10 new
combining marks, 5 new Greek letters and symbols,
16 new Cyrillic letters and marks, 1 new Armenian mark,
12 new Arabic letters and marks, 8 new punctuation marks,
2 new currency symbols, 2 new combining marks for
symbols, 58 new general symbols, 4 new CJK symbols, 1 new
Hebrew compatibility character, and 3 new specials.
Obviously the above is subject to change.
