 > While the aforementioned dashicons for bbPress and BuddyPress may exist
 (and are accessible via CSS, e.g. `content: "\f477";`), the CSS needed for
 the HTML use suggested by the !DevHub Dashicons page (e.g. `<span
 class="dashicons dashicons-bbpress-logo"></span>`) won't work out of the
 box for users until WP core's `dashicons.css` (last updated 2016-03-18) is
 updated to include the `:before` styling for these "new" icons.
 > I know these styles have already been added to the dashicon project's
 font/dashicons.css#L262 dashicons.css on GitHub], but they need to make
 their way to  WP core's `dashicons.css` file before they are fully
 available to users (and thus able to be shown on !DevHub). Since the file
 doesn't seem to get updated before each release, I'm not sure what the
 timetable for the next sync is. Maybe @melchoyce or @ryelle might have
 some insight?

 I moved #WP41074 "Create new Dashicons (4.9)"  into the 4.9 milestone a
 week or so back so that the dashicon changes that have gone in over the
 past ~18 months will "hopefully" land in 4.9 :)
