Proposed New Characters: The Pipeline

last updated 2023-January-26

This page presents a summary of the characters, scripts, variation sequences, and named character sequences that the Unicode Technical Committee has accepted for inclusion in future versions of the Unicode Standard or code point ranges that have been provisionally assigned for possible encoding of characters in mature proposals.

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 and the Roadmaps.

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

Note: If the 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 tables:

Color Code Entry Status
Not Yet Stable
light green accepted by UTC and in active ISO technical ballot (or on hold for ballot)
light yellow accepted by UTC, but not yet in ISO ballot
light tan code points reserved by the UTC for mature proposals not yet formally accepted
Stable and Frozen for Publication
white frozen for publication, ISO technical balloting completed and either in ISO approval ballot or pending ISO publication

Characters Approved for Publication in the Next Version

Characters accepted by the UTC which are approved and planned for publication in the next version of the Unicode Standard are listed in the following table. The term draft candidate is used to indicate that the accepted character has been included in the repertoire targeted for publication in the next version.

Until the start of the official beta review, the code points and character names for draft candidates are not immutable—the UTC will consider feedback regarding proposed character names or other issues. Draft candidates may also be reconsidered by the UTC. They may be removed from draft candidate status and be postponed for consideration for a future version, instead.

Once the beta review for a particular version starts, code points and character names for that repertoire are locked down and become immutable. Watch the beta review page and the list of Public Review Issues to check on the status of beta review. After the start of beta review for this repertoire, please follow the detailed instructions on the beta PRI to report any problem regarding character properties or other issues.

Current Status Note: The following repertoire is currently in preparation for alpha review. Code points and character names are not yet frozen, and feedback can be provided via the contact form.

Characters Accepted for a Future Version

The following table lists all other characters which have been accepted by the UTC for a future version of the standard. None of these characters is yet designated for publication in a particular version of the Unicode Standard.

Feedback is welcome regarding all aspects of these characters, including whether they are acceptable for eventual encoding and publication.

Code Points Provisionally Assigned for Mature Proposals

The following table lists code point ranges provisionally assigned for specific repertoire associated with proposals that the UTC has deemed mature and ready for encoding. None of these characters has as yet been formally accepted and approved for a future version of the Unicode Standard. Code point ranges are set aside, however, to assist with planning and with proposal review.

These provisional code point assignments are not immutable, but should be considered more stable than tentative allocation ranges noted in the Roadmaps.
