Fifty-six new emoji characters are in the just released Emoji 5.0
<http://www.unicode.org/Public/emoji/5.0/> data, including such
characters as:

shushing face shushing face



flying saucerflying saucer






/* for healthy eaters!/

The new Emoji 5.0 <http://www.unicode.org/Public/emoji/5.0/> set is
fixed, and available for vendors to begin working on their emoji fonts
and code ahead of the release of Unicode 10.0, scheduled for June 2017.

The majority of these new emoji characters are the 34 /Smileys &
People/, with 13 new /Food & Drink/, followed up by 6 /Animals & Nature/
and a few others.

There are an additional 180 emoji sequences for gender and skin-tone in
/Smileys & People/ — such as /woman in lotus position: medium skin tone/
— and new regional flags for /England/, /Scotland/, and /Wales/. This
makes a total of 239 new emoji (characters and sequences). For a full
list, see Emoji Recently Added

The emoji charts <http://unicode.org/emoji/charts/index.html> have been
updated to show the new characters and sequences. The draft Emoji 5.0
specification <http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr51/proposed.html> will
be finalized in the May UTC meeting, and is still available for comment

/The 239 new emoji are also now available for adoption
<http://unicode.org/consortium/adopt-a-character.html> to help the
Unicode Consortium’s work on digitally disadvantaged languages./
