Unicode 15.0 Alpha Review

u15 alpha image The repertoire for Unicode 15.0 is now open for early review and comment. During alpha review the repertoire is reasonably mature and stable, but is not yet completely locked down. Discussion regarding whether certain characters should be removed from the repertoire for publication is welcome. Character names and code point assignments are reasonably firm, but suggestions for improvement may still be entertained.

This early review is provided so that reviewers may consider the character repertoire issues prior to the start of beta review (currently scheduled to start in late May, 2022). Once beta review begins, the repertoire, code points, and character names will all be locked down, and no longer be subject to changes.

Feedback for the alpha review should be reported under PRI #442 using the Unicode contact form by April 5, 2022.

Over 144,000 characters are available for adoption to help the Unicode Consortium’s work on digitally disadvantaged languages
