ICU LogoUnicode® ICU 59 has just been released! ICU is the main avenue
for many software products and libraries
<> to support the world's
languages, implementing both the latest version of the Unicode encoding
standard and of the Unicode locale data (CLDR).

ICU 59 upgrades to CLDR 31 and to emoji 5.0 data, together with
segmentation and bidi updates from Unicode 10 beta. The Java code for
number formatting has been completely rewritten for reliability and
performance. There is also a new case mapping API for styled text, and a
technology preview of enhanced language matching.

There are major changes for ICU4C that will make ICU easier to use but
require changes in projects using ICU: C++11, char16_t, UTF-8 source files.
