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.
