We'd like to call people's attention to a few recent items on the Unicode

UTF-8 Corrigendum

- The Unicode Technical Committee has modified the definition of UTF-8 to
forbid conformant implementations from interpreting non-shortest forms for
BMP characters, and clarified some of the conformance clauses.

Unicode 3.0 Online

- The text of the Unicode Standard, Version 3.0 is now online.

UCD 3.1 Beta

- As announced previously, the Beta files for the upcoming Unicode Character
Database, Version 3.1 are available for testing. The Beta period will be
closing soon, so here is your chance to review any changes.

There are links to pages for these topics on the Unicode Home page, (Note: you can use web services like to get automatic notification when new items
appear on that page.) Please forward this notice to anyone else who would be
interested in these topics.
