The Unicode Consortium has released its latest version of unicode standards, Unicode 8.0.0.

The Unicode Consortium was established in 1991 in an attempt to organize the standards surrounding characters which are utilized to create language on the internet.

Due to the myriad International languages and the associated characters utilized to express that language online, there was a need to organize a standard of language across the internet, so that computers (and, people) could communicate with one another.

The Unicode Consortium works to create and maintain the globalization of these standards.

Developers can participate in the project, through the BETA versions released by the group.
