The Unicode Consortium has decided to issue Beta 2 of the Unicode
Character Database for Unicode 5.0. This extends the feedback period until
May 9, 2006. The relevent public review issues for UAXes have also been
extended to the same date. Some information on changes and updates to the
UAX #9 beta will be announced soon. Data files will also be updated during
During the extended beta review period for Unicode 5.0, the UTC is seeking
feedback on potential errors or inconsistencies in all of the data files.
However, please note that some of the character properties will be frozen
as of March 1. The freeze will apply to all properties defined in the
following files: UnicodeData.txt, Scripts.txt, and EastAsianWidth.txt; to a
specific list of properties from PropList.txt (White_Space, Hex_Digit,
Diacritic, and Ideographic); and to two derived properties, Numeric_Value
and Numeric_Type. Substantive feedback received after March 1 regarding any
of those properties will be recorded and taken into consideration in
review of future versions of the standard, but will not be reflected in
modifications for Unicode 5.0.
The Unicode 5.0.0 beta data files are available at
http://www.unicode.org/Public/5.0.0/ucd/. General information regarding 5.0
data files is available at http://www.unicode.org/Public/5.0.0/.
