According to the UN M.49 site (http://unstats.un.org/unsd/methods/m49/m49alpha.htm), the U.N. Statistics Division has added new code elements for Sudan (729) and South Sudan (728), and has retired the existing code element 736 for Sudan, as it applied to a different area.
This is a step toward South Sudan being assigned new alpha-2 and alpha-3 code elements in ISO 3166-1, which will ultimately result in a new region subtag in the Language Subtag Registry.
