libicu71-71.1-2.1 RPM for riscv64

From OpenSuSE Ports Tumbleweed for riscv64

Name: libicu71 Distribution: openSUSE Tumbleweed
Version: 71.1 Vendor: openSUSE
Release: 2.1 Build date: Tue Apr 26 20:20:08 2022

Summary: International Components for Unicode
ICU is a set of C and C++ libraries that provide extensive Unicode
and locale support.
This package contains the runtime libraries for ICU.






* Mon Apr 25 2022 Marcus Rueckert <>
  - bump library packagename to libicu71 to match the version.
* Sat Apr 09 2022 Dirk Müller <>
  - update to 71.1:
    * updates to CLDR 41 locale data with various additions and corrections.
    * phrase-based line breaking for Japanese. Existing line breaking methods
      follow standards and conventions for body text but do not work well for
      short Japanese text, such as in titles and headings. This new feature is
      optimized for these use cases.
    * support for Hindi written in Latin letters (hi_Latn). The CLDR data for
      this increasingly popular locale has been significantly revised and
      expanded. Note that based on user expectations, hi_Latn incorporates a
      large amount of English, and can also be referred to as “Hinglish”.
    * time zone data updated to version 2022a. Note that pre-1970 data for a
      number of time zones has been removed, as has been the case in the upstream
      tzdata release since 2021b.

  - Update to new upstream release 58.1
    * CLDR 30.0.2: For details of the many changes in CLDR, see
    CLDR 30. Some things to note:
    * For some combinations of numbering system (arab, arabext, latn)
    and/or locale (ar, fa, he), there were changes to the
    bidirectional control characters used with certain symbols
    (percent, minus, plus), and changes to number patterns (currency
    and/or percent, including addition of bidirectional control
    characters in some cases).
    * Thhe bidirectional controls used for such purposes include U+061C
    ARABIC LETTER MARK (ALM), which requires use of the bidirectional
    algorithm from Unicode 6.3 or later.
    * The time separator for Norwegian locales (nb, nn) was changed to
    be ':' throughout.
    * Unicode 9.0: Version 9.0 adds exactly 7,500 characters, for a
    total of 128,172 characters. These additions include six new
    scripts, 19 symbols for the new 4K TV standard, and 72 new
    emoji characters.
    * Draft Emoji 4.0 data
    * Emoji updates for word & line breaking
    * UBiDiTransform/BidiTransform API for convenient transformation of
    text between different Bidi layouts.
    * MeasureFormat API for measurement unit display names
    * Most COUNT and LIMIT enum constants have been deprecated
    * SpoofChecker: Handling of "whole script confusables" has been
    removed from ICU, in accordance with its removal from UTS #39
    Version 9.0.0 and the removal of the corresponding Unicode data
    * Greek uppercasing ("el" locale ID) removes most diacritics.
    * More robust locale data loading across ICU implementation code.
    * Reduced heap memory usage in DateTimePatternGenerator
* Fri Mar 25 2016
  - Update to new upstream release 57.1
    * CLDR 29 support
    * Grapheme/word/line breaking for emoji sequences, based on
    Unicode 9 proposed rules.
    * Four new Unicode emoji properties

    new pattern characters b & B, and DateTimePatternGenerator
    support of C for selecting the customary form.
    * RelativeDateTimeFormatter: Simpler formatting API.
    * New simple & fast SimpleFormatter class for a trivial subset of
    MessageFormat as used in CLDR data.
* Fri Oct 09 2015
  - Update to new upstream release 56.1

    5,771 new ideographs for Chinese/Japanese/Korean, 6 new scripts,
    improved character properties data, etc.
    * ICU data size reduced by about 7.2% (1.8MB) via sharing string
    values across resource bundles.
    * DateIntervalFormat now handles intervals with seconds, and sets
    FieldPosition more consistently.
    * DateFormat::createInstanceForSkeleton() caches DateFormat
    patterns rather than DateTimePatternGenerator instances, for
    better performance (for cache hits) and lower heap memory
    * StringSearch (based on collation) defaults to matches on
    normalization boundaries rather than grapheme cluster boundaries,
    which yields more matches on Indic text.
    * RuleBasedNumberFormat (spelled-out numbers) now handles
    infinity, NaN.
    * Most of the old Normalizer/unorm.h had been replaced by
    (and reimplemented via) Normalizer2, and is now deprecated.
    * COLON has been withdrawn as a date pattern character
    corresponding to the date field [UDAT_]TIME_SEPARATOR_FIELD;
    there is currently no pattern character corresponding to that
    * Support for locale key "cf" to specify currency format style,
    and interaction with NumberFormat values for UNumberFormatStyle.

    * A span function was added for iterating through strings.
    * The containsAll(string) and containsNone(string) now support
      set strings, instead of only codepoints.

      being used and platform being used.
    * Rule based transliterator construction performance has been
