[cldr v31 alpha image]The alpha version of Unicode CLDR 32 is available
for testing. The alpha period lasts until the beta release on September
27 <http://cldr.unicode.org/#COMP_20659206160749766>, which will include
updates to the LDML spec. The final release is expected on October 19.

CLDR 32 provides an update to the key building blocks for software
supporting the world's languages. This data is used by all major
software systems <http://cldr.unicode.org/index#TOC-Who-uses-CLDR-> for
their software internationalization and localization, adapting software
to the conventions of different languages for such common software tasks.

CLDR 32 included a Survey Tool data collection phase, with a resulting
significant increase in data size, especially for emoji
names/annotations and geographic subdivision names. Other enhancements
include rule-based number formats for additional languages, a new
“disjunctive” list style (a, b, or c), and fixes for Chinese collation
and transliteration. The draft release page at
http://cldr.unicode.org/index/downloads/cldr-32 lists the major
features, and has pointers to the newest data and charts. It will be
fleshed out over the coming weeks with more details, migration issues,
known problems, and so on. Particularly useful for review are:

    * Delta Charts <http://unicode.org/cldr/charts/32/delta/index.html>
      - the data that changed during the release
    * By-Type Charts
      <http://unicode.org/cldr/charts/32/by_type/index.html> - a
      side-by-side comparison of data from different locales
    * Annotation Charts
      <http://unicode.org/cldr/charts/32/annotations/index.html> - new
      emoji names and keywords
    * Territory Subdivisions

Please report any problems that you find using a CLDR ticket
<http://unicode.org/cldr/trac/newticket>. We'd also appreciate it if
programmatic users of CLDR data download the xml files and do a trial
integration to see if any problems arise.
