I think what Keld is pointing to is the link from there to:

which contains the May 29, 1999, ISO/IEC 10646-1 Second Edition
text, Draft 2.

Keld is correct that that text constitutes the rollup of all of
the approved (or nearly approved) amendments through Amendment 30,
plus all technical corrigenda and editorial corrigenda to date.
However, it is not the final text (though very close). It includes
all Annexes (except Annex G -- the alphabetical list of characters,
which was just generated a couple weeks ago). But for users of
the standard, you should note that Document 2005 does *not*
include any of the character tables (the 1000 pages or so of
character charts and names).

So if you are interested in the discursive text of the 10646 standard,
Document N2005 is your best publicly available source at the moment,
but if you want the charts, you will have to wait to purchase
the full, published standard. (Or use the Unicode 3.0 book.)
