Terminus TTF 4.40 released

After a long time, Terminus TTF 4.40 has finally been released.

Relevant upstream changes:

  • Added 6 combining accents as separate characters.
  • Added 14 letters with dot above / dot below.
  • Added partial subscript and superscript: all digits and 11 letters.
  • Added 30+ math characters, notably large braces, brackets and parens.
  • Added unicode range 2800-28FF in two variants (br1 and br2).
  • A few small character fixes.

Changes exclusive to Terminus TTF:

  • There now is a Bold Italic variant in order to satisfy some applications which refuse to treat Terminus TTF as monospaced unless that variant exists. It has the same drawbacks as the existing Italic variant: It is generated automatically by slanting and bolding the Regular variant of Terminus Font, so it is of lower quality than the Regular variant.

  • You can now choose between Terminus (TTF) and Terminus (TTF) for Windows when downloading Terminus TTF.

    The former now again is a direct conversion of Terminus Font, while the latter contains fixes specific to Windows. In other words, you now have the choice whether to use those fixes or not; this is important because these fixes come with some pretty serious drawbacks — the Terminus TTF homepage has more details (displayed when downloading the Windows version). Unfortunately, without those fixes, Terminus TTF will not work on Windows.

Terminus TTF 4.39 released — now with Powerline support!

It’s time for another Terminus TTF release!

Terminus TTF 4.39 contains all the changes from the upstream release 4.39 of Terminus Font:

  • Added ballot, checkmark, heavy ballot and heavy checkmark.
  • Changed HT, LF etc. in sizes 14 and 18-hi2 to be proportional to the letter height, not the matrix height.
  • Added the powerline characters E0A0..E0A2 and E0B0..E0B3.
  • Added diameter (2300) - same gluph as empty set (2205).
  • Small improvements in size 32.

The most interesting change is probably support for Powerline, a vim plugin that offers an alternative statusline and also provides statuslines for other applications like tmux and zsh.

As always, you can get the latest Terminus TTF release at http://files.ax86.net/terminus-ttf/.

Terminus TTF v4.38.2 released

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!

Terminus TTF v4.38.1 released

I have just released a minor update for Terminus TTF, a TTF version of Terminus Font.

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!).

Terminus TTF v4.38 released!

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).
