CLDR Coverage
CLDR 29 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.

New BCP47 extension keys have been added for specifying transliteration
and emoji presentation, and for customizing locales with region-specific
settings. Many new transforms are provided, the rule format has been
simplified, and BCP47 IDs have been added for all transforms. Region
data now includes appropriate preferences for day periods such as "6:00
in the morning" and "7:00 in the evening", and there is new structure
for choosing appropriate units based on region and usage. A Cantonese
locale has been added. The emoji ordering has been improved, and
annotations are provided for more emoji and in more locales. The
JSON-format data has been extended to include number spellout (RBNF) and
script metadata.

The specification
<> and charts
<> have also been updated.
