Unifont 9.0.02 Released

GNU Unifont 9.0.02 has been released and is stable.

Unifont is a bitmap font in BDF and PCF formats, also rendered as a
TrueType font.  You can read more about it at

Those who want to use the font immediately can download these three
TrueType files:

- unifont-9.0.02.ttf - contains glyphs for all printable characters
(code points) in the Unicode 9.0.0 Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP)

- unifont_upper-9.0.02.ttf - contains glyphs for many Unicode scripts
above the BMP, mainly in the Supplemental Multilingual Plane (SMP);
all SMP scripts that are easily represented (and a couple not so
easily represented!) in a 16-by-16 pixel grid up to and including the
Unicode 9.0.0 SMP are included in this release

- unifont_csur-9.0.02.ttf - contains glyphs from the ConScript Unicode
Regsitry (CSUR); these are not a part of the official Unicode
specification, but are one popular mapping for the Unicode Private Use

Files can be downloaded at or at (which will
automatically redirect to a mirror site).

The major changes in this release include a slashed zero to benefit
programmers after multiple requests, removing the Unicode BMP glyphs
from the CSUR TrueType file (which reduces the size of the full
uncompressed distribution by about 14 Megabytes), combining the former
lower- and upper-CSUR fonts into one file, and adding 3 more CSUR
scripts.  A full list of changes appears in the ChangeLog file in the
main tarball, unifont-9.0.02.tar.gz.

The Unifont tarball also contains tools for manipulating these font files.
