Mountain View, CA, April 23, 2012 - The Unicode® Consortium is pleased
to announce the publication of the final text of the core specification
for Unicode 6.1. The Unicode 6.1 core specification documents newly
encoded scripts, certain conformance clarifications, and other updates
and improvements to the text. In Version 6.1, the standard grew by 732

Version 6.1 of the Unicode Standard continues the Unicode Consortium's
long-term commitment to support the full diversity of languages around
the world. This latest version adds characters to support additional
languages of China, other Asian countries, and Africa. It also addresses
educational needs in the Arabic-speaking world.

This version of the Standard brings technical improvements to support
implementers, particularly with improvements to property values and
their aliases that enable easier programmatic use. Other improvements
include line-breaking behavior of Hebrew and Japanese text and
segmentation behavior of Thai, Lao, and other similar languages.

In January 2012, the other portions of Unicode 6.1 were released: the
Unicode Standard Annexes, code charts, and the Unicode Character
Database, to allow vendors to update their implementations of Unicode
6.1 as quickly as possible. The release of the core specification
completes the definitive documentation of the Unicode Standard, Version 6.1.
