    Dear Unicoders and Symbols enthusiasts,
    We have posted a new version of the Emoji symbols chart, with images for the
    representative glyphs taken from the preliminary font and editorial changes
    intended to clarify some of the contents of the proposal.

    Please see the email below for details.

    Best regards,

    Dear Emoji enthusiasts,
    We have posted a new version of the Emoji symbols chart:

    Thanks to Apple, we now have a preliminary Emoji symbols font with
    representative glyphs.
    Thanks to Microsoft, we have image files for the glyphs in this font.
    The updated chart shows these image files for the proposed new characters.

    We also changed the chart slightly to clarify what will or will not be part
    of the proposal.

       - Symbols proposed for encoding are shown with their font glyph image and
       a red "U+xxxxx".
       - Symbols unified with existing Unicode 5.1 characters are shown as
       characters, and with their code points in black.
       - Symbols unified with upcoming Unicode 5.2 (AMD6) characters are shown
       with "U5.2" and their code points in black.
       - We changed temporary notes to gray text color and made it explicit that
       they are temporary. These will not become formal annotations (unless we move
       some of their contents into real proposed annotations).

    The contents (set of characters/unifications and character names) are so far
    little changed from when we posted the chart for public review. We moved
    substantive feedback into project
    discussed most of them, and are in the process of making changes as
    necessary. (While we do so, the issues will move out of the Open Issues

    We will continue to update the chart as we resolve issues and receive and
    assess new feedback.

    Please continue to send feedback to this
    emoji4unicode@googlegroups.comaddress. We especially appreciate
    further feedback about
    unifications/disunifications with existing or upcoming Unicode characters,
    feedback about the proposed character names, and feedback about the proposed
    representative glyphs.

    Thanks, best regards, and happy new Gregorian year,
