Here is an updated list of New gTLD IDNs registered by icann. I will test the other New gTLD IDNs when I have time.

icann.我爱你 which is may favourite as it means - icann. I Love You 😂

I assume that these are not just defensive registrations.

I consider it crucial that when these IDNs are implemented they are properly integrated into the icann website. So this excludes redirecting to the ascii icann.org and excludes frame redirects. The IDN should show in the address bar and follow the pathname navigation. If icann have used relative url addressing in their site then this should not be a problem.

And … in the longer term the pathname part should be in the current language. Using aliasing/links this is not difficult to implement. More explanation another time.
