Happy halloween!~ This release contains fun new objects, furry emoji and more as well as introducing a bunch of exciting new package types and some unexpected technical improvements.
0.3.0 represents a significant step forward in getting your gay, furry and weird emoji anywhere. It also includes a much bigger (and more permanent) range of colour modifiers and many design improvements designed to improve the readability of many existing emoji.
It’s Mutant Standard’s 1st birthday today! 🙌 🎊
In honour of this, Mutant Standard 0.2.5 is a party-focused update. It also brings even more quality improvements.
This is a huuuge maintenance and improvement update. I’m really proud of it and I’m so happy to share it with you all! ^w^
This update was originally going to be focused on aquatic creatures and lizards until I got tired of doing animals, so it has a wide assortment of things instead.
0.2.2 is a bird-focused update:
- Lots of new bird emoji!
- 4 more claw hands (the claw hands are now complete!)
- Improved western_dragon emoji
- eastern_dragon emoji
- Some other small improvements here and there.
Like with all the current updates this season, this won’t be the only update with birds in it, but it’s a big start :).

Mutant Standard 0.2.1
For the next few months, I’m going to put my attention towards animals, nonhumans and humans, starting with animals.
0.2.1 introduces a bunch of new furry animals and almost completes the paw hand set!!! (30/31 to be exact)
It also introduces the rest of the Unicode hearts. E:

Mutant Standard S1
The other day, I made a bunch of novelty thinking emoji and shared them on Mastodon, and thus the idea of making ‘special’ releases was born.
Special releases is a space for occasional memes and dumb bullshit. Like VIP emoji, they are shortcode-only.

This particular update has been a long-time coming, it’s a major step forward for Mutant Standard and it’s required a major overhaul to how Mutant Standard emoji are produced and presented.
Most of this you can thank kiilas for, who is an excellent programmer and so much of this project is indebted to.
The exporter that I’ve been using to get emoji out in all the colours, sizes and formats has been replaced with a brand-new and much more powerful exporter called Orxporter. This will eventually be open source so if you know how to use a command line, you can use this tool too!
As you might imagine, given my current situation, I’ve been kind of scatterbrained. I was in the middle of working on some emoji that are quite close to ready a day or so ago, but then I realised that I had lost track of what I already made (which is unusual for me, but this has been a much longer release cycle than usual), so I’ve decided to get everything I’ve already done locked in place with a new release before I continue finishing more emoji.
Aside from personal things, this release is quite a bit smaller than usual because a lot of stuff in this release was quite intensive (like extra hands, new colours and extended colours). I also just had to go with what I had the spoons to create, so the kinds of emoji I’ve made isn’t necessarily what was planned, and it’s going to be that way for quite a while atm.
This is going to be very wordy because I don’t have the spoons to make diagrams explaining the CM system at the moment, so bear with me.
I’d like to thank everyone for being so patient and supportive during this really shitty time in my life. I’ve been hoping that I’d reach the end of this tunnel sooner but as usual, my spoons are in much shorter supply than I would like u∆∆u, but I am on it as much as I can be in my present capacity. 💚
