Oxygen Font is a project to design a desktop/gui font for integrated use with the KDE desktop.
The basic concept for Oxygen Font is to design a clear, legible, sans serif font which would be rendered with Freetype on Linux-based devices. In addition a bold weight, plus regular and bold italics, and a monospace version will be made.
Oxygen is to be constructed closely with the gridfitting aspects of the Freetype engine. The Oxygen fonts will also be autohinted with Werner Lemberg's "ttfautohint" library to further the compatibility with the Freetype engine. The aim of this approach is to produce a family of freetype-specific desktop fonts whose appearance will stay uniform under different screen render settings, unlike more traditionally designed 'screen fonts' that have tended to be designed for best legibility on the Windows GDI render engine.
The Oxygen Fonts are released under either The SIL Open Font License (OFL) version 1.1 or the GNU General Public License version 3 with font exception (GPL+FE).
