There are a lot of new characters in 8.0 but the only ones that were
within the 256 character blocks that are already in the document (and so
for which I added images) were

U020BE LARI SIGN
U0218A TURNED DIGIT TWO
U0218B TURNED DIGIT THREE
U02BEC LEFTWARDS TWO-HEADED ARROW WITH TRIANGLE ARROWHEADS
U02BED UPWARDS TWO-HEADED ARROW WITH TRIANGLE ARROWHEADS
U02BEE RIGHTWARDS TWO-HEADED ARROW WITH TRIANGLE ARROWHEADS
U02BEF DOWNWARDS TWO-HEADED ARROW WITH TRIANGLE ARROWHEADS
U0FE2E COMBINING CYRILLIC TITLO LEFT HALF
U0FE2F COMBINING CYRILLIC TITLO RIGHT HALF


I suppose only the arrows have a vaguely plausible mathematical use.

Sadly most of the new characters, like U1F3CF (CRICKET BAT AND BALL)
probably won't be classified as suitable for math use for a while.
