Changes since v3.0

  • Math operators have been improved (+ − × ÷ ± = ≠ ≈ ~ < > ≤ ≥)
  • Lower-case "g" in heavier weights have been improved (lower arm made more rigid) #80
  • Prime glyphs have been improved (′ ″ ‴ ⁗ ‵ ‶ ‷ ʹ ʺ) #86
  • New alternate upper-case "i" with serifs, accessible through OpenType features ss02 and cv08 #89
  • New alternate number three with flat top, accessible through OpenType features ss01 and cv09 #89
  • Fixes an issue with the variable font where some type rasterizers would apply anti-aliasing as separate passes on each shape of a glyph, rather than drawing all shapes as one. This caused some edges to be slightly heavier than they should be. #85
  • Some small improvements to kerning and other glyphs

Report any issues at https://github.com/rsms/inter/issues

Significant changes from RC 3:

  • Variable font no longer contains "ital" axis, as legacy support is poor (i.e. font-style:italic doesn't map to the max extreme of the ital axis.) However, the "slnt" (Slant) axis is well-supported. The italic masters and instances are now positioned along the slant axis instead of italic. This is merely a semantic change, with no visual effect.
  • Fixes some italic glyphs in the variable font
  • Kerning and other minor improvements
