This data is used by a wide spectrum of companies for their software internationalization and localization, adapting software to the conventions of different languages for such common software tasks.
Unicode CLDR 24 focused on additional structure for formatting units, dates, and times, and improving data coverage. This version contains data for 238 languages and 259 territories—740 locales in all. Ten languages were added to the 100%-modern-coverage list for a total of 70 languages. Between the new languages, and the new structure, more data was entered than in any previous release.
The new structure focused primarily on formatting of units and improvements to date and time formatting.
In addition, the data already present from CLDR v23 was reviewed for the supported languages, and many improvements made.
Details of coverage improvements and new features are provided in http://cldr.unicode.org/index/downloads/cldr-24, along with a detailed Migration section.
