./fonts/unifont, GNU Unifont - glyphs for all printable code points in Unicode 9.0 BMP

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 9.0.06, Package name: unifont-9.0.06, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

GNU Unifont is an official GNU package. It is a dual-width
(8x16/16x16) bitmap font, designed to provide coverage for all of
Unicode Plane 0, the Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP).

GNU Unifont has a glyph for each visible code point in the Unicode
Basic Multilingual Plane (Plane 0) and some glyphs in the Supplemental
Multilingual Plane (Plane 1). This version also includes many
glyphs in Michael Everson's ConScript Unicode Registry (CSUR).

Unifont only provides a single glyph for each character, making it
impossible to handle any language properly that needs context-dependent
character shaping. It is supplied in the form of a hex file, with
a converter to convert it to BDF. See http://czyborra.com/unifont/
or http://unifoundry.com/unifont.html for more information. The
BDF font is converted to PCF, and the hex file is converted to a
TrueType font.

   serifs to make Cherokee glyphs easier to read.

   Modified Pikto CSUR glyphs after comparison with high-resolution scans
   of Basic Pikto book.

unifont: update to 9.0.03

 21 October 2016 Release (Unifont 9.0.03): This release updates some glyphs and \ 
adds these ConScript Unicode Registry (CSUR) scripts:

    U+E8E0..U+E8F4 Tonal System, a base 16 system for counting, weights, and \ 
measures invented by John William Nystrom, a 19th-century civil engineer. Drawn \ 
by Paul Hardy.
    U+F8C8 Aiha, by Ursula K. Le Guin, added the Aiha double combining glyph. \ 
This was omitted in the original CSUR Aiha description. Drawn by Paul Hardy.
    U+0F0E70..U+0F11E7 Pikto, a pictographic Constructed Language \ 
("ConLang") created by John E. Williams in the 1950s.

The addition of the Pikto script is the main change in this version. Andrew \ 
Miller scanned the Pikto pictographs from John Williams' Pikto book. Paul Hardy \ 
and Johnnie Weaver drew the Unifont Pikto glyphs. A detailed chart of these \ 
glyphs and their meanings is on the (very large, about 1 Mbyte!) Pikto page.

The Tonal System is a comprehensive base 16 counting and measuring system \ 
devised during the nascense of the international effort to standardize on a \ 
decimal system of measurement. A Tonal System overview appears on this Tonal \ 

The large bitmap linked at the top of this page now includes the Plane 0 CSUR glyphs.
