    Briefly, the new issue is:


    Issue #150 Draft UTS #46: Unicode Compatible IDNS Preprocessing

    This document provides a specification for processing that provides for
    compatibility between older and newer versions of internationalized
    domain names (IDN) in client software (lookup). It allows
    applications--browsers, emailers, and so on--to be able to handle both
    the original version of internationalized domain names(IDNA2003) and the
    newer version (IDNA2008), avoiding possible interoperability and
    security problems.
