Resolution: The UAX will be updated with final content and published as part of Unicode 6.2.

Description of Issue:

This Unicode Standard Annex will be updated for Unicode 6.2. The proposed update is now available for general public review and comment.

The text of UAX #14 is being changed to address certain segmentation issues for symbols, disallowing breaking within the sequence <ID, Zero Width Joiner, ID>, and allowing breaks around pictographic symbols. This involves the introduction of a new property value, a new rule, and changes in property values for certain characters. The reasons for these changes are discussed in the following background documents:

The corresponding property value changes for LineBreak.txt, as well as for PRI #215 (UAX #29) are incorporated in the data files available for beta review of the UCD for Unicode 6.2. The changes for LineBreak.txt associated with PRI #229 are not part of the beta
review of the UCD for Unicode 6.2, but are separately available; see PRI #229 for details.
