Today EmojiOne officially released the latest version of their emoji set, EmojiOne 4.0, featuring both new and revised emoji designs.

Extensive revisions to its emoji offerings is, at this stage, the norm for EmojiOne. Each of the vendor's updates have included hundreds of changes to their designs, both big and small.
Last year we cited the 🍣 Sushi emoji as an example of this. EmojiOne's version of the popular Japanese foodstuff had at that stage undergone four major revisions in three years. With this update the design has been updated once more, albeit in a more subtle manner.

Another example of this is the 👹 Ogre, which has also been updated in EmojiOne 4.0.
Smiley face emojis have all undergone modifications to their shading: they now feature each a gradient on the circular yellow form. Take 🤠 Cowboy Hat Face, for example.

Emoji 11.0 features a total of 157 new emojis, six of which are new smiley faces. These are shown below in their EmojiOne 4.0 designs.
The remaining new additions include superheros, animals, scientific objects and other paraphernalia.
EmojiOne also adds characters for the emoji components used to create each of the hair styles which brings the total of new emojis to 161 in this release.
EmojiOne 4.0 is free for personal use, on the web, or as an option in apps. A premium license is, however, required if EmojiOne 4.0 designs are to be used in print or commercial advertising. EmojiOne is now branding licensing for physical consumer goods as JoyPixels.
