CLDR Coverage
CLDR 30 provides an update to the key building blocks for software
supporting the world's languages. This data is used by all major
software systems <> for
their software internationalization and localization, adapting software
to the conventions of different languages for such common software
tasks. The following summarizes the main improvements in the release.

    * Unicode support is updated to 9.0, including updated Unihan
      readings for the pinyin collation and Han-Latin transforms, and
      support for new script codes and number systems.
    * The set of language codes for translation has been updated, with a
      significant increase in the total number of translated language names.
    * Substantial new data has been added for likely subtags (e.g., to
      get the main script for each language).
    * New data items have been added to support relative times such as
      "3 Fridays ago" or "this hour".
    * New draft format and preference structure has been added to
      support week designations such as "the week of August 10" or "week
      3 of March".
    * New <characterLabels> data can be used to generate labels for
      groups of related characters in character pickers.
    * The structure for emoji annotations has been revised, and the data
      has been significantly updated. The emoji collation has been
      updated, and data is added for improved segmentation behavior.
      Added a specification for synthesizing ZWJ sequence names.
    * The CLDR 30 Survey Tool data collection resulted in a net increase
      in data items of about 9.2%, with an additional 5.9% of items changed.
