Work on my Envy Code R programming font has resumed and I’ve spent hours playing with the hinting process to ensure it looks good at sizes above and below 10 point:
These look great – even more so when you consider there are no embedded bitmaps and very few delta hints.
There is still a lot of work to do – all the foreign characters, symbols and box-drawing characters (another 600 glyphs) require hinting and I should test it on the Mac, Java and Flash font rendering engines to make sure there are no show-stoppers there.
Preview 7 will consist of
of just a plain style regular and bold because I need to get this out – it’s been too long since the last release. Preview 8 will add back italics and the Visual Studio italics-as-bold hack shortly afterwards.
A newer version of Envy Code R is available.
