Because Unicode is at the foundation of all modern software using text,
it is important to verify that problems are not introduced with new
versions. If your implementation uses Unicode data, please download and
test the final release candidate of the Unicode 6.1 data (UCD) with your
implementation now. Please note that the Unicode Collation Algorithm
(UCA) and the Unicode IDNA Compatibility Processing
<> are correlated with version 6.1;
if you have an implementation of them, please check the data below as well.

That data can be found in:

   1. Unicode

   1. (data, semicolon-delimited)
   2. (data, xml)

   2. UCA

   1. (data)

   3. IDNA compatibility

   1. (data)

For more information, see

Note that at this point in the process, no substantive changes can be
made unless:

   1. a problem is found in carrying out the actions directed by the
      Unicode Technical Committee for the release, or
   2. an editorial problem is found in the data comments or documentation.

The Unicode Consortium is planning to move up the release date of
Unicode 6.1 (UCD and UAXes) to January instead of February, so any final
comments should be made by January 6th. You can send your comments using
the Contact Form (

The draft code charts for Unicode 6.1 have also been updated. We
encourage users to check the code charts carefully to verify correctness
of the new characters added to Unicode 6.1 and to ensure that there are
no regressions in glyph shapes for previously encoded characters. For
links to the charts, see
