This has also been brought up on the Cross Projects Mailing List
In the new year, (i.e. hopefully by Helios M5) the platform will be
including  the new(er) version of ICU4J , ICU 4.2.x (4.2.1
followed by 4.2.2 before Helios ships).
There are no major API changes (just a reminder that ICU is an
external project, and so does not follow our API version conventions
What do consuming projects have to do? Make sure your ICU
Import-Package statements don't have an upper bound, especially an
exclusionary bound "..., 4.2.0)".
Also of interest: The ICU project will be releasing 4.4 in March
2010, and the API will include 1.5 features (Generics, Enums, etc).
But the Eclipse Platform has no plans to adopt 4.4 at this time.
