The Unicode® Consortium today announced the start of beta review for the
forthcoming Unicode 6.3.0. All beta feedback must be submitted by April
29, 2013.

The main feature of Unicode 6.3 is the update of the Unicode
Bidirectional Algorithm and five newly-encoded bidirectional format
control characters: U+061C ARABIC LETTER MARK and the isolate span
controls U+2066..U+2069. This version also rolls in various minor
corrections for errata and other small updates for the Unicode Character

Unicode is the foundation for all modern software and communications
around the world, including all modern operating systems, browsers, and
smart phones; modern web protocols (HTML, XML,...); and
internationalized domain names. Thus it is important to ensure a smooth
transition to each new version of the Unicode Standard. Software
developers and other experts are strongly encouraged to review the beta
data files and documentation for Unicode 6.3.0 carefully, and to provide
any feedback regarding errors or other issues to the Unicode Consortium.
Software developers can also get an early start in testing their
programs with the beta data files so they will be ready for the release
of Unicode 6.3.0 in June, 2013.

• See http://www.unicode.org/versions/beta-6.3.0.html, for information
about testing the 6.3.0 beta.

• See http://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode6.3.0/ for the current
draft summary of Unicode 6.3.0.
