The latest Unicode 6.2 beta is now in blead
Message ID:
 From perldelta:

"This is supposed to be the final data for 6.2, unless glitches are 
found.  The earlier experimental 6.2 beta data has been reverted, and 
this used instead.  Not all the changes that were proposed for 6.2 and 
that were in the earlier beta versions are actually going into 6.2.  In 
particular, there are no changes from 6.1 in the General_Category of any 
characters.  6.2 does revise the C<\X> handling for the REGIONAL 
INDICATOR characters that were added in Unicode 6.0.  Perl now for the 
first time fully handles this revision."

Unicode decided to extend the comment period on the General_Category 
changes to certain characters in the ASCII range from Punctuation to 
Symbol.  See

and Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
