ICU4J Version 2.8 releasedIBM has released the latest version of its excellent ICU4J java lib. new good stuff includes:
- historical timezones: "where daylight savings time rules or other related data have changed after the date in question". cool.
- updated locales and more locale methods (to access stuff like paper page sizes, measurement systems, etc.). cool.
- improved sorting (now does proper Thai Royal Dictionary order). way cool for me ;-)
- XLIFF conversion tool (in case you're developing your own resource data)
- a how-to for using eclipse with ICU4J
- bug fixes, performance improvements, etc.
