./fonts/unscii, Bitmapped character-art friendly Unicode fonts

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.1, Package name: unscii-2.1, Maintainer: nikita

Unscii is a set of bitmapped Unicode fonts based on classic system
fonts. Unscii attempts to support character cell art well while also
being suitable for terminal and programming use.

The two main variants are unscii-8 (8x8) and unscii-16 (8x16). There
are also several alternative styles for unscii-8, as well as a 8x16
"full" variant that incorporates missing Unicode glyphs from Fixedsys
Excelsior and GNU Unifont. "unscii-16-full" falls under GPL because of
how Unifont is licensed; the other variants are in the Public Domain.

HEX and PCF are the only actual bitmapped formats here. HEX is the
same simple hexdump format as used by the Unifont project.

TTF, OTF and WOFF are vectorized because the bitmapped TTF fonts
generated by FontForge didn't seem to work anywhere. Fixes to this
problem are appreciated.

Log message:
fonts/unscii: Update to version 2.1

Changelog taken from http://pelulamu.net/unscii/:

In 2020-03-10, the new Unicode version 13.0 added 214 graphics
characters for "legacy computing" (including, among all, the missing
PETSCII characters, and a majority of missing Teletext/Videotex
characters). Most of these were already included in Unscii 1.x, but
now I have been able to give them proper Unicode mappings as
well. This is the main reason for the Unscii 2.0 release.

Additionally, Unscii 2.0 fixes errors in some characters, legibility
in some others and adds a bunch of new ones.
