Emoji Unicode CLDR 33.1 adds support for the recently released

Unicode 11.0
. Version 33.1 is the latest version of CLDR, the core
open-source language data that major software systems use to adapt software to
the conventions of over 80 different languages. The open-source Unicode ICU
library incorporates the CLDR Version 33.1 data as part of its update to Unicode
11.0 in its ICU 62
release. ICU code is used by many products for Unicode and language support,
including Android, Cloudant, ChromeOS, Db2, iOS, macOS, Windows, and many
others.

The CLDR 33.1 release focuses on updates for Unicode 11.0: new
names and keywords
for the Unicode 11.0 emoji, Chinese collation stroke
order, and script metadata. In addition, there are major improvements for names and
annotations for the pre-11.0 emoji in CLDR languages. More extensive updates are
planned for CLDR 34 (release expected in early October), with data
submission
still continuing.
