The *beta* version of Unicode CLDR 34
<http://cldr.unicode.org/index/downloads/cldr-34> is available for
testing. The final release is expected on October 12.

CLDR 34 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 34 included a full Survey Tool data collection phase. Other
enhancements include several changes to prepare for the new Japanese
calendar era starting 2019-05-01; updated emoji names, annotations,
collation and grouping; and other specific fixes. The draft release page
at http://cldr.unicode.org/index/downloads/cldr-34 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/34/delta/index.html>
      - the data that changed during the release
    * By-Type Charts
      <http://unicode.org/cldr/charts/34/by_type/index.html> - a
      side-by-side comparison of data from different locales
    * Annotation Charts
      <http://unicode.org/cldr/charts/34/annotations/index.html> - new
      emoji names and keywords

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.
