[Unicode Announcement] Unicode 5.2 Beta - Chapters 1-5 Available

The ongoing beta review for Unicode 5.2 has been supplemented
today with the availability of drafts for the first part of the
consolidated text of the Unicode Standard, Version 5.2.

The landing page for Unicode 5.2 summarizes the major
new additions and changes for Version 5.2:


Links to pdf versions of Chapters 1 through 5 of the standard
are available on that page.

We would like to remind folks that the period for beta review
of the Version 5.2 data files and the Unicode Standard Annexes
is rapidly drawing to a close. The meeting of the Unicode
Technical Committee in August will be making the final decisions
on any reported problems in the data or the annexes, so now
is the time to check the posted data files and documents.
See the beta review page for details:
