The Unicode 7.0 standard was announced yesterday and adds 2,834 characters.

Unicode 7.0 brings in new currency symbols, historic scripts, and a variety of other symbols -- including plenty new emoji characters.

Those wishing to learn more can read the announcement via the Unicode blog. (Pardon for being a day late and terse in this announcement due to traveling yesterday in Russia and still getting caught up...)
