Unicode Emoji 11.0 characters now ready for adoption!
Message ID:
keyboardThe 157 new Emoji are now available for adoption 
<>, to help the 
Unicode Consortium’s work on digitally disadvantaged languages.

The main goal of the Unicode Consortium is to enable modern software and 
computing systems to support the widest range of human languages, 
present and past. There are approximately 7,000 living human languages, 
but fewer than 100 of these languages are well-supported on computers, 
mobile phones, and other devices. Adopt-a-character donations are used 
to improve Unicode support for digitally disadvantaged languages, and to 
help preserve the world’s linguistic heritage.

For more information on the program, and to adopt a character, see the 
Adopt-a-Character Page 

And by the way, we have updated charts for the new emoji 
<>, with 
some fixed glyphs (thanks to Emojipedia!). Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
