- Transliteration from Latin to US-ASCII characters is now supported. Prior to this update, icu in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 did not support this mode of the transliterator_transliterate() function. Consequently, it was not possible to perform certain operations. For example, the user could not easily remove non-ASCII characters from PHP code strings. With this update, the user can use transliterator_transliterate() to transliterate Latin characters to US-ASCII characters.
- Previously, during the rebuild process of the icu source package, two-digit format was used for calendar year in the test case and was not interpreted correctly. As a consequence, the year 2034 was displayed instead of year 1934 causing the check of the test case to fail. A patch has been applied to fix this bug and the check no longer fails.
