Localization (natural language support)
UCA collation URIs (as defined in both the XSLT 3.0 and Functions and Operators 3.1 specifications) are now recognized
in Saxon-HE as well as -PE and -EE. In Saxon-HE, they are supported only if the
fallback option takes
its default value of
yes, and all options other than
normalization are ignored. The implementation uses the built in Java collation support, rather than (as in Saxon-PE and -EE)
the separate ICU library. The set of locales that are recognized in the
lang parameter depends on the version
of Java that is installed.
The ICU library is updated from version 57.1 to version 59.1. This brings Unicode 9.0 support.
