The Verity Locales 6.0 product is significantly different from previous releases. Note these changes:

Single-language European locales (englishx , frenchx , and so on) are no longer part of this product. They are now licensed and installed separately from Verity Locales.

 

Table-driven Eastern European and Middle Eastern locales (czech , arabic , and so on) are no longer available. Verity suggests that you use the multilanguage (uni ) locale for those languages.

 

Language-handling algorithms for non-Asian languages in the multilanguage locale have changed from previous releases. If you are upgrading from an earlier version, you may need to re-index existing collections to get consistent search results.

 

The englishv locale is available with K2 and VDK, although it is no longer the default locale.

 

The default locale for K2 and VDK is now uni , with the default language as English (en ).
