The new draft of Unicode Emoji identifies a set of about 1,250 current emoji as recommended for Unicode 7.0 implementations. The Consortium would appreciate feedback on this set of characters. To make review easier, explicit lists of these characters have been added to Section 3.
The Media section of the report has been moved to a new expanded page, unicode.org/press/emoji.html, and now includes links to video of the recent Emoji keynote. The selection factors for new emoji have also been extended.

An update to CLDR 26 has been released, only for the JSON format of the data. Some of the JSON data from CLDR 26 had corrupt identity information, which has been fixed in this update. The XML for CLDR 26 remains unchanged. Refer to http://unicode.org/cldr/trac/ticket/8018 for details.
