    The Unicode(R) Consortium has announced the release of the new version of
    the Unicode Common Locale Data Repository (Unicode CLDR 1.5.1), providing
    key building blocks for software to support the world's languages. Unicode
    CLDR is by far the largest and most extensive standard repository of locale
    data. This data is used by a wide spectrum of companies for their software
    internationalization and localization: adapting software to the
    conventions of different languages for such common software tasks as
    formatting of dates, times, time zones, numbers, and currency values;
    sorting text; choosing languages or countries by name; transliterating
    different alphabets; and many others.

    CLDR 1.5.1 is an update release, with no new translations. The main
    changes are a significant revision to the data and process for computing
    timezone names, and additional data for finding default script or country
    given a language, or the converse. The structure has also been updated for
    the latest version of BCP 47, and new currency codes. For more information,
