The dev version of CPython gets the latest version of Unicode integrated to it regularly - and usually within dates of the latest version of Unicode coming out.

The Unicode HOWTO documentation has a line in the introduction that refers to the number of Unicode code points assigned so far. This document does not appear to be changed to concur with the number of actual code points supported by CPython or the latest standard by Unicode, Inc (

I propose that a change be done to reflect the current number of code points.
