Amendment 154 of ISO 4217 was published. Attached is the document.

There are two change:

1. Currency code of ZAMBIA is changed from ZMW to ZMK
2. Currency name of VEF is changed.

Verified in b71

In latest CLDR, the currency display name of VEF is not changed. It's still Venezuelan Bol��var. The change of currency name of VEF does not affect current resource file. The fix will not include any change in currency display name of VEF. The currency display name of ZMW is not in latest CLDR. Current fix will not include the currency name of ZMW. Those information will be included in resource files when adding latest CLDR content in the future.

EVALUATION jdk/src/share/classes/sun/util/resources/CurrencyNames.properties needs to be updated Corresponding regression test in jdk/test/java/util/Currency/, jdk/test/sun/text/resources/. Regression in test/closed will also run to check if any test in closed repository is affected. The localized currency name of VEF in 10 supported locales have to be integrated later in other CR, because it takes certain time for CLDR to include the new localized name in its release.
