    There is a new draft of the Proposed Update to UAX #15 Unicode
    Normalization Forms, in response to the new strengthening of the Unicode
    Stability policies, with modifications listed below.

    * Combined former sections 3.1-3.4, 18, and 20 into a new section:
            "Stability Prior to Unicode 4.1"
    * Moved former subsection 3.5 to its own section: "Stabilized Strings"
    * Renumbered former section 19: "Canonical Equivalence"
    * Tightened stability in Section 3 for Unicode 4.1 and later; pointed
            to new section "Stability Prior to Unicode 4.1" for earlier
            stability policies and implementation techniques.

    Unicode 5.1.0 is currently in the pre-publication phase and is due for
    release at the end of March 2008. No more substantive changes are planned,
    beyond those already approved by the Unicode Technical Committee. However,
    if you have editorial comments on the text of Unicode 5.1.0 please report
    via the online reporting form (
