    Several proposed updates have just been posted on the Unicode website.
    Three of these are new Public Review Issues, and one is an update to an
    open issue. Please see the review page for links to all of these issues:

    Review periods for the new items closes October 10, 2007.

    UAX #9 Bidirectional Algorithm (PRI #112)
    In this update, definition BD6 has been clarified.

    UTS #10 Unicode Collation Algorithm (PRI #113)
    This update clarifies the use of contractions in DUCET. Information has
    been added about the use of parameterization (section 5.1), and a new
    conformance clause (C6).

    UAX #14 Line Breaking Properties (PRI #105)
    Several minor textual updates and clarifications have been made and new
    characters for Unicode 5.1.0 have been added. Section 5.3 on the use of
    hyphen has been updated. It is anticipated that more characters for Unicode
    5.1.0 will be added to the proposed update later, once data corresponding
    to the new repertoire is available.

    UAX #34 Unicode Named Character Sequences (PRI #114)
    There have been no internal text changes to UAX #34, this update is the
    pro-forma version release candidate update for Unicode 5.1.0.
