Not sure if this applies to current release. From the file.


  • A new ISO standard has been included, ISO 3166-3. The gettext domain is called iso_3166-3. Basically, this is a split of the old domain iso_3166 into iso_3166-1 and iso_3166-3, because the old domain iso_3166 contained both standards. However, the standard ISO 3166-3 was more or less inaccessible.
  • The standard ISO 4217 (currency names) now includes only the currently used currencies. Entries of withdrawn currencies are no longer included.
  • The standard ISO 639-5 now includes only the language families which are part of the official standard. The previously included languages were not part of the standard and have been removed. This reduced the number of language families from about 1900 to about 110.
  • The XML files are deprecated and should not be used for new projects. However, they are kept in sync with the JSON data for now.
  • The gettext domains have been renamed to better match the actual ISO number:
    • ISO 639-2: Renamed from iso_639 to iso_639-2
    • ISO 639-3: Renamed from iso_639_3 to iso_639-3
    • ISO 639-5: Renamed from iso_639_5 to iso_639-5
    • ISO 3166-1: Renamed from iso_3166 to iso_3166-1
    • ISO 3166-2: Renamed from iso_3166_2 to iso_3166-2

All previously used gettext domains are linked to the new domain names, so that this transition should be smooth for programs using those domain names.
