ICU 61.1 was released this week. Not sure what the urgency is for updating on our end, but probably good to have a bug on file for it anyway. Common Changes * CLDR 33: - Two additional locales (Odia, Assamese) were brought up to Modern coverage level. - 4 new transforms: fa-fa_FONIPA, ha-ha_NE, nv-nv_FONIPA, vec-vec_FONIPA. - New currency code MRU for Mauritania. - Arabic native vs. ASCII digits: It is now possible to change a single data value (locales/ar.txt NumberElements/default → "latn", rebuild ICU data) in order to switch Arabic-language (but not Arabic-country-variant) number formatting from native digits (٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩) to ASCII digits (0123456789) which are more widely understood. (ICU #13567, CLDR #10825) - Data additions & bug fixes. * Many small API additions, improvements, and bug fixes. ICU4C Specific Changes * Added Google double-conversion library for formatting doubles (#11318). This is the library used in V8 and a number of other projects for converting doubles to decimals. To avoid name collisions, the library is linked internally under the ICU namespace as icu::double_conversion. Our copy of double_conversion is not intended for public usage. * Re-wrote U8_NEXT macros to eliminate all library function calls. (#13467) ICU4J Specific Changes * Under-the-hood overhaul of number and currency parsing. See the design doc for a summary of changes; behavior is mostly compatible with previous versions, but there are some known differences. Please report issues on #13513.
