    There is a new Proposed Update of UTS #10: Unicode Collation
    Algorithm, on:

    The main changes are the following:

    - Added new Introduction. This covers concepts in Version 3.0, Section
    5.17, but is completely reworked. The Scope section has been recast
    and is now at the end of the introduction.

    - Changed the version to synchronize with versions of the Unicode
    Standard, so that the repertoire of characters is the same. This
    affects the header and C4.

    - Added explanation of different ways that the Hangul sorting problem
    can be solved in 7.1.4 Trailing Weights.

    All significant changes are highlighted, and also summarized in the
    Modifications section.

    This document will be reviewed at the Unicode Technical Meeting
    starting June 10th. If you have any feedback on the proposed update,
    please submit it by June 2nd. The document describes how to submit any

    Note: In the case of the new introduction, we are especially
    interested in feedback from those who are relatively unfamiliar with
    the conceptual issues connected with language-sensitive collation.
