I have just updated the xetex subversion repository at http://scripts.sil.org/svn-public/xetex/TRUNK
to build xetex using ICU release 4.0 in place of release 3.8.1.
It would be helpful if some people can build and test this, especially
working with OpenType fonts (both "pro" Latin-script fonts with
various features, and non-Latin scripts such as CJK, Arabic, and Indic
writing systems). If possible, I'd like to apply this update to the
TeX Live sources as well, in time for the final TL 2008 binary builds,
so if there are any problems arising from the update, we need to know
about them ASAP.
I'm not really expecting to see regressions -- in fact, many of the
ICU layout engine updates had been applied to the 3.8.1 sources in
xetex already -- but would appreciate any further testing.
