    Briefly, the new issue is:

    62 Proposed Update UTS #10 Unicode Collation Algorithm

    A proposed update for UTS #10: Unicode Collation Algorithm (UCA) is
    available for public review. The main feature is the update of the
    repertoire to Unicode 4.1.0 (for synchronization, UCA 4.1.0 will be
    available within the month after Unicode 4.1.0). Other changes include:

    - Use of ignorable character (especially CGJ) to interrupt contractions

    - Changing the mechanism for reordering Thai/Lao characters to use

    - More detail about alternatives for handling Hangul characters

    - Additional options in Searching and Sorting

    - The data tables are not yet available, but the changes can be summarized
    as: assignments for all new 4.1.0 characters, additions of Thai/Lao
    contractions, plus changes in the weighting of certain Latin characters,
    some previously ignorable characters, and modifications of certain other
    Thai characters.
