      Mountain View, CA, June 29, 2009 - The Unicode® Consortium announced
    today the release of a new version of the Unicode Common Locale Data
    Repository (Unicode CLDR 1.7.1), 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 1.7.1 is an update release, with no new translations. The main
    changes are fixes for numbering systems and currencies, but a number of
    other bugs were fixed. See the CLDR 1.7.1 Release Note
    <http://sites.google.com/site/cldr/index/downloads/cldr-1-7-1> for a
    full list of changes. There were no changes in the LDML specification.


    Unicode CLDR 1.7 is part of the Unicode locale data project, together
    with the Unicode Locale Data Markup Language (LDML:
    http://unicode.org/reports/tr35/). LDML is an XML format used for
    general interchange of locale data, such as in Microsoft's .NET. For web
    pages with different views of CLDR data, see
    http://unicode.org/cldr/charts.html. For more information about the
    Unicode CLDR project (including charts) see http://cldr.unicode.org. The
    latest features of CLDR will also be showcased at the 33rd
    Internationalization and Unicode Conference (IUC) on October 14-16, 2009
    in San Jose, CA — see http://unicodeconference.org/
