Fri Oct 21 14:00:00 2016
- Update to new upstream release 58.1

* CLDR 30.0.2: For details of the many changes in CLDR, see
CLDR 30. Some things to note:

* For some combinations of numbering system (arab, arabext, latn)
and/or locale (ar, fa, he), there were changes to the
bidirectional control characters used with certain symbols
(percent, minus, plus), and changes to number patterns (currency
and/or percent, including addition of bidirectional control
characters in some cases).

* Thhe bidirectional controls used for such purposes include U+061C
ARABIC LETTER MARK (ALM), which requires use of the bidirectional
algorithm from Unicode 6.3 or later.

* The time separator for Norwegian locales (nb, nn) was changed to
be \':\' throughout.

* Unicode 9.0: Version 9.0 adds exactly 7,500 characters, for a
total of 128,172 characters. These additions include six new
scripts, 19 symbols for the new 4K TV standard, and 72 new
emoji characters.

* Draft Emoji 4.0 data

* Emoji updates for word & line breaking

* UBiDiTransform/BidiTransform API for convenient transformation of
text between different Bidi layouts.

* MeasureFormat API for measurement unit display names

* Most COUNT and LIMIT enum constants have been deprecated

* SpoofChecker: Handling of \"whole script confusables\" has been
removed from ICU, in accordance with its removal from UTS #39
Version 9.0.0 and the removal of the corresponding Unicode data

* Greek uppercasing (\"el\" locale ID) removes most diacritics.

* More robust locale data loading across ICU implementation code.

* Reduced heap memory usage in DateTimePatternGenerator

Fri Mar 25 13:00:00 2016
- Update to new upstream release 57.1

* CLDR 29 support

* Grapheme/word/line breaking for emoji sequences, based on
Unicode 9 proposed rules.

* Four new Unicode emoji properties

* DateFormat day period formatting of \"noon\", \"at night\", etc. via
new pattern characters b & B, and DateTimePatternGenerator
support of C for selecting the customary form.

* RelativeDateTimeFormatter: Simpler formatting API.

* New simple & fast SimpleFormatter class for a trivial subset of
MessageFormat as used in CLDR data.

Fri Oct 9 14:00:00 2015
- Update to new upstream release 56.1

* CLDR 28: For details of the many changes in CLDR, see CLDR 28.

* Unicode data updated to Unicode 8.0: 41 new emoji characters,
5,771 new ideographs for Chinese/Japanese/Korean, 6 new scripts,
improved character properties data, etc.

* ICU data size reduced by about 7.2% (1.8MB) via sharing string
values across resource bundles.

* DateIntervalFormat now handles intervals with seconds, and sets
FieldPosition more consistently.

* DateFormat::createInstanceForSkeleton() caches DateFormat
patterns rather than DateTimePatternGenerator instances, for
better performance (for cache hits) and lower heap memory

* StringSearch (based on collation) defaults to matches on
normalization boundaries rather than grapheme cluster boundaries,
which yields more matches on Indic text.

* RuleBasedNumberFormat (spelled-out numbers) now handles
infinity, NaN.

* Most of the old Normalizer/unorm.h had been replaced by
(and reimplemented via) Normalizer2, and is now deprecated.

* COLON has been withdrawn as a date pattern character
corresponding to the date field [UDAT_]TIME_SEPARATOR_FIELD;
there is currently no pattern character corresponding to that

* Support for locale key \"cf\" to specify currency format style,
and interaction with NumberFormat values for UNumberFormatStyle.
