Unicode Versions supported in SQL Server (2000-2012)

Update to a previous post on Unicode support in SQL Server.

Which version of the Unicode Standard is supported by MS SQL Server?

SQL Server Version Unicode Version
2000 3.0
2005 3.2
2008 5.0
2008 R2 5.0
2012 5.0*

* The documentation on SQL Server 2012 does not explicitly refer to a Unicode version number. Even if there was no change, SQL Server 2012 introduced native support for supplementary characters.
