Dear XML Schema developers,

This is the official announcement of Unicode Version 3.1, from
Unicode Consortium President Mark Davis.

This means that the following clause in the 'Status of this Document'
of the XML Schema Proposed Recommendation gets activated:

"Implementors should note that this part of this specification makes
a normative reference to the current version of the Unicode Database,
which specifies properties for characters on which the regular expression
language defined here relies. A new version of the Unicode Database is
expected to appear between the time this Proposed Recommendation is
published and the time it becomes a W3C Recommendation; it is expected
that the normative reference to the Unicode Database will be updated

Regards,    Martin.

 > We are pleased to announce the release of The Unicode Standard, Version
 > 3.1. The primary feature of Unicode 3.1 is the addition of 44,946 new
 > encoded characters. Together with the 49,194 already existing characters in
 > Unicode 3.0, that comes to a grand total of 94,140 encoded characters in
 > Unicode 3.1.
 > The new characters cover several historic scripts, several sets of symbols,
 > and a very large collection of additional CJK ideographs. Unicode 3.1 also
 > features new character properties, and assignments of property values for
 > the much expanded repertoire of characters.
 > All errata and corrigenda to Unicode 3.0 and Unicode 3.0.1 are included in
 > this specification, together with significant enhancements of the Unicode
 > conformance clauses and additions to other sections of the standard.
