    The Unicode Technical Committee has posted a new issue for public review
    and comment. Details are on the following web page:


    Review period for the new item closes on August 3, 2009.

    Please see the page for links to discussion and relevant documents.
    Briefly, the new issue is:

    PRI #149
    Proposed Update UTS #22: Unicode Character Mapping Markup Language

    This proposed update includes editorial fixes and clarifications based
    on community feedback. There is a small change in the DTD from version
    three to this proposed version five (a new default attribute value). See
    the Modification History and the highlighted changes for details.

    There are also two updates to open Public Review Issues:

    PRI #136
    Proposed Update UAX #14: Unicode Line Breaking Algorithm

    The text of UAX #14 has been revised throughout, with both substantive
    and editorial changes. A new Line_Break class CP has been added, and the
    rule LB30 has been reintroduced, to address an edge case involving
    breaks around parenthesized letters. More new Southeast Asian scripts
    and characters have been added to the Line_Break class SA. The lists of
    characters representing each Line_Break class are now exemplary, rather
    than exhaustive in the text. Please review the new text carefully.

    PRI #134
    Proposed Update UAX #9: Unicode Bidirectional Algorithm

    The latest revision also includes a new conformance test file, which
    implementers should carefully review. See BidiTest.txt in the data files
    directory: http://www.unicode.org/Public/5.2.0/ucd/

    The closing dates remain the same.
