Text-ICU: Comprehensive support for string manipulation
This package provides the Data.Text.ICU library, for performing complex manipulation of Unicode text. It provides features such as the following:
Conversion to and from many common and obscure encodings
This library is implemented as bindings to the well-respected ICU library (which is not bundled, and must be installed separately).
Upstream ICU occasionally introduces backwards-incompatible API breaks. This package tries to stay up to date with upstream, and is currently more or less in sync with ICU 55.
Please report bugs via the github issue tracker.

The Collator type is no longer an instance of Eq, as this functionality has been removed from ICU 53.
Many NFData instances have been added.
