New CLDR implemented

Today I updated the locale database to the latest release (CLDR 1.7) which is available since 2 weeks by unicode. It provides several corrections for existing locale informations.

Corrected currency signs, additional locales, additional timezone data and much more. This update changes about 5MB of data and is only provided within trunk. It will be available to ZF with the next minor release 1.9.

Additional new informations are provided by CLDR like
* postalcodes
* phonecodes
* locale upgrading
and several more.

This new informations will be integrated within ZF soon.
See http://framework.zend.com/issues/browse/ZF-6681 for informations about new features to be integrated.

Please note, that like in past Zend (and me) is not allowed to provide changed CLDR files. When you find a error you have to possibilities.

* Anyone who finds an error can keep it private
* Or feel free to write a issue to unicode (unicode.org/cldr) about incorrect informations

I hope you find it usefull
