This is the FONTLOG file for the Ubuntu Font Family and attempts to follow
the recommendations at:  http://scripts.sil.org/OFL-FAQ_web#43cecb44


Overview

The new Ubuntu Font Family was started to enable the personality of
Ubuntu to be seen and felt in every menu, button and dialog.
The typeface is sans-serif, uses OpenType features and is manually
hinted for clarity on desktop and mobile computing screens.

The scope of the Ubuntu Font Family includes all the languages used by
the various Ubuntu users around the world in tune with Ubuntu's
philosophy which states that every user should be able to use their
software in the language of their choice. So the Ubuntu Font Family
project will be extended to cover many more written languages.


History

The Ubuntu Font Family has been creating during 2010 and 2011.  As of
September 2011 coverage is provided for Latin, Cyrillic and Greek across
Regular, Italic, Bold and Bold-Italic.  Further work was uptaken during
2015.


ChangeLog

2015-08-21 (Paul Sladen) Ubuntu Font Family version 0.83

  Note: This release was created by binary patching from the v0.80
  release using the scripts in 'sources/patch-0.80-0.83/' to rebuild
  the necessary tables. The release selectively updates only those
  proportional .ttf font files exhibiting the bug below bug number;
  the Ubuntu Mono monospace font files remain unchanged, being the
  original version 0.80 ones.
