I am wondering whether it would be possible to enable font awesome 5? It looks like cdnjs does not include Font Awesome 5, but they have their own CDN that could be used -

I hope you consider it @gcushen - I love the theme and the continued support you give it and your users! Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion. I don't see why not, once FA team enable CDNJS to be updated to v5. There is some work involved in upgrading Academic from FA v4 to v5 though since v5 is rewritten from scratch.

Steps to upgrade:

Should this be closed by #659?

@Nosferican #659 mostly resolves this. Ideally, we would use CDNJS as the CDN, but the CDNJS version is broken and unknown when it'll be fixed (see links in the description), so I'll go ahead and close this for now.

We can revisit this in the future to check if CDNJS/FA5 teams have fixed their FA5 packaging.
