Brief Overview:

The Integration Panel (IP) has successfully evaluated the Root Zone Label Generation Rules (LGR) proposals for Bangla and Chinese scripts, as well as the updated proposal for Malayalam script. These proposals were finalized and submitted by the respective Generation Panels (GPs), following their release for Public Comment. The IP has integrated these proposals, along with other scripts already integrated into the third version of the Root Zone LGR (RZ-LGR-3), to develop the fourth version of the Root Zone LGR (RZ-LGR-4). As per the Procedure to Develop and Maintain the Label Generation Rules for the Root Zone in Respect of IDNA Labels, the RZ-LGR-4 is being released for Public Comment to gather community feedback for its finalization. RZ-LGR will be used to determine valid top-level Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) labels and their variant labels.
