I recently found a bug in osmosis regarding utf-8, assuming I've fixed 
it (I need to test it further) it should be ready now.  Version 0.16 
includes both 0.5 support (add -0.5 suffix to all task names) and fixes 
the UTF-8 bug.  I still need to update it to support the new quadtile 
and fixed point lat lon node table deployed over the last 12 hours and 
should get that done over the next couple of days.

I'm still hoping to make planetdiff unnecessary by generating change 
files directly from the database but this requires correction to the 
history tables (primarily requires the addition of TIGER deletion 
history rows).  *If* (and its a big if at the moment), history tables 
are aligned with current tables then the current method of generating a 
new planet followed by a diff file can be reversed.  A diff file would 
be created directly from the database and a new planet derived based on 
the old planet plus the diff.

But in the meantime I suspect it would make sense to update planetdiff 
for 0.5.
