Submission + - Unicode 6.0.0 is out->

peppepz writes: Although there's no official announcement on the front page yet, the new revision of the Unicode standard, 6.0, has officially appeared on the unicode.org site.

This release includes 2,088 new characters; among them, hundreds of “Emoji”, whose inclusion in Unicode has been pushed by Apple and Google for interoperability with Japanese mobile phone operators. They're icons expressing a wide range of emotions for both human and cat faces, but also include the most unexpected glyphs such as the PILE OF POO encoded at position U+1F4A9.

On a more serious side, there's support for three new scripts, there are new properties for better automatic classification of text and spoof detection, and the newly-designed symbol for the Indian Rupee has been encoded.

In a five year period we can get one superb programming language. Only we can't control when the five year period will begin.
