CTAN update: emo

Robert Grimm submitted an update to the emo package. Version: 0.4 2023-04-26 License: lppl1.3c apache2 other-free ofl Summary description: Emoji for all (LaTeX engines) Announcement text:
v0.3 inadvertently introduced a bug into `\emo`, with the macro expanding to the (desired) emoji and an (illegitimate) space with some LaTeX engines. My bad! This release fixes the bug and does penance by also introducing a shiny new testing framework for emo. It may not enforce that many assertions (3 each for 3 engines) but those assertions provide full coverage of normal macro operation and the results are presented in most handsome and helpful reports. You can use the same [build.sh](https://github.com/apparebit/emo/blob/boss/build.sh) script that produces the documentation in [emo.pdf](https://github.com/apparebit/emo/blob/boss/emo.pdf) for also producing the combined test results from `pdflatex`, `xelatex`, and `lualatex` in [canary.pdf](https://github.com/apparebit/emo/blob/boss/canary.pdf). 🥳

emo – Emoji for all ( engines)

Emo implements the \emo{'emoji-name'} command for including color emoji such as 🏝 (\emo{desert-island}) or 🦜 (\emo{parrot}) in your documents independent of input encoding or engine. The implementation uses the Noto color emoji font if the engine supports it and includes PDF graphics otherwise. The latter are automatically derived from Noto’s SVG sources, so the visual appearance is very similar.

Emo may come in particularly handy when dealing with academic publishers that provide only minimal support for non-Latin scripts.
