Proposed New Characters: Pipeline Table

The following is a summary of the characters, scripts and variation sequences that the Unicode Technical Committee has accepted for inclusion in future versions of the Unicode Standard. It is presented here to help implementers track future additions to the Standard.

For current information about the status of publication and processing for emoji characters, easier to understand information with all of the emoji displayed can be found instead at Emoji Recently Added and Emoji Candidates.

For more information, including the planned use of remaining code space, see About the Pipeline Table. Experts interested in reviewing proposed scripts should consult the Proposed New Scripts page.

This page was last updated 15-Aug-2016.

Caution: Use of proposed or accepted characters is at implementers' own risk; the repertoire, names and allocation of the characters may change before they are finally published in the Unicode Standard.

Note: If the Proposed Allocation or Character Sequence field below is marked with a "*", there is a pending change in the code points for the proposed allocation, a pending name change, or both. Action by a subsequent UTC meeting is required to resolve such differences, and the results will be posted back into this table once the differences between the UTC and ISO positions are formally reconciled by the UTC.

The following colors are used to indicate the entry status in the Pipeline table:

Color Code Entry Status ISO Stage
light yellow not yet in ISO ballot Stages 1- 3, or N/A
light green in active ISO technical ballot (or on hold for ballot) Stages 4, 5 or 6
vermillion accelerated for prospective publication in the Unicode Standard while still in active ISO technical ballot Stages 5 or 6
white ISO technical balloting completed and either in ISO approval ballot or pending ISO publication Stages 7 or 8
light gray already published in a version of the Unicode Standard while still in ISO approval ballot or pending ISO publication Stages 7 or 8
