Cyrillic domain names

As some of you may know, IANA has approved the Cyrillic letters to be used in top level domains. One of my client has asked me to setup a new forum for him on a new domain he is getting. The domain will have a cyrillic top level extension and possibly the entire domain name will by in cyrillic letters.

I wonder if there will be any issues with phpbb to support such domains? Can anyone give a definite answer about this?

Should be no issue.
There is also a Serbian (Cyrillic script) language pack available. http://www.phpbb.com/languages/?from=submenu

I know phpbb supports all sorts of languages its just that cyrillic domain names is such a new thing, you know.
Just want to be sure there will not be any issues.

The best way to gain an insight is to do a quick install of phpBB3, it only takes a few minutes.

phpBB3 does not support TLDs of that type for the URL type bbcodes. Having it as a domain name shouldn't break anything, but keep in mind that it wasn't designed with those types of domains in mind.

However, it is something we will support in the future.
