Common Locale Data Repository 1.1 released

hot off the press, the unicode organization has released version 1.1 of the Common Locale Data Repository. its got 50% more data than 1.0, 247 locales spead over 78 languages and 118 countries combinations. the news article indicates that there are also "36 draft locales" in the queue. the repository access page further states that this is "a stable release and may be used as reference material or cited as a normative reference by other specifications." yeah, finally somebody to blame ;-) you can either do a web CVS or download a zip archive of the CLDR from that page.

i urge you to double check your locale's data & report any bugs you find. i'd say this is pretty good news for i18n folks.
