Description

I'm not totally sure, but is this flag causing Unicode files to not be cached?

UNICODE_BETA = YES

Sorry for the ping, I noticed the commit where the flag was flipped. Appveyor (and maybe other CI) is having issues with reliable connections to Unicode.org. I think if this is reset, the Unicode files will be cached?

The UNICODE_BETA = yes flag is causing a full download of the relevant index.html files to get the actual filenames of the files we need (because in beta, these do change). But we use If-Modified-Since even in BETA, so there are no actual downloads if there are no changes, only short connections to the server.

The reason Ruby isn't out of beta has to do with the fact that in the current setup, it's easier to get into beta than out of beta.
