Here’s a late Christmas present: A new minor release of Terminus TTF.
This update improves compatibility with Windows. In particular, the font now looks good in Visual Studio and even other Windows applications (if you use the right font sizes)!
It turns out that getting Windows to use embedded bitmaps is a real pain. I won’t bash Windows here, but well, it’s disappointing that you have to resort to hacks like this just to use bitmap fonts.
As always, you can get the latest Terminus TTF release at http://files.ax86.net/terminus-ttf.
A happy new year to all my readers!
Version 4.38.1 changes some of the font names. This was necessary for Java applications to be able to correctly use the italic font face (without this change, I could not get Netbeans to use the italic font). Since the font family was not changed (it still is “Terminus (TTF)"), you should not need to change your configurations.
As always, you can get the latest Terminus TTF version from http://files.ax86.net/terminus-ttf (now with a new homepage!).
Well, it looks like this blog of mine is pretty much dead, but here’s a new Terminus TTF version – that’s an automatically generated TTF version of the Terminus Font, a great fixed-width bitmap font.
To quote the upstream changelog, version 4.38 brings you the following enhancements:
- Added 22 pseudographic characters, most notably rounded frames.
- Fixed Y acute in sizes 22 and 28, internal optimizations (invisible).
Get the TTF version of Terminus here! (As always, the TTF version is equivalent to an unpatched Terminus Font.)
And now for something completely different:
I had to disable comments on this blog; the spammers were too annoying. Until I (hopefully) find a better solution, you can send me an email if you have any feedback to give (just click on the little envelope icon next to my nickname at the top of this post).
I’ve released an updated version of Terminus’ TTF version a while ago, but forgot to blog about it. So here’s the delayed announcement.
Terminus (TTF) v4.36 corresponds to Terminus Font v4.36 and contains the same changes as the non-TTF version:
- Added quotereversed (201B), quotedblreversed (201F), I/i/U/u dotbelow (1ECA, 1ECB, 1EE4, 1EE5).
- Moved all quotes and alike in size 32 one line down.
- Small fixes and improvements (t commaaccent, quotes alignment etc. in some sizes).
No patches (i. e. the alternative versions of Terminus) have been applied to the TTF version.
As always, you can get my version here: http://files.ax86.net/terminus-ttf/
There’s been a small bug fix release of Terminus Font. The changes in version 4.35 are as follows (taken from the font’s website):
