[Font] Xolonium 3.1

#1
NOTE: Find the latest thread for the Xolonium font here

[Image: JjkPCl9.png]

I have finally finished a full revision of the Xolonium fonts.

Amongst many improvements, version 3 features compacter glyphs,
a more consistent design, better kerning, and a bolder bold version.
And for the fun of it, I also implemented a few OpenType features.

If you would like to install Xolonium outside of Xonotic, you can get
the public release here: http://openfontlibrary.org/font/xolonium

As of version 3.1, the public release is licensed under the
SIL Open Font License, which is the standard license for open-source fonts.
Because that license is incompatible with the GPL, I also provide
a dedicated GPL version of the fonts for Xonotic.

Would you consider to also, e.g. dual license it as CC-by(-SA)? GPL can't be used by some open source games and this seems like a great font to use also elsewhere.

EDIT: The public release of Xolonium is now licensed under the OFL, which solves this problem. I've updated the original post.

Great work! For all the Arch Linux users out there I added it to the AUR - simply search for xolonium-fonts. You will also find it when searching for "Xonotic", as it is part of the description :o)

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xolonium-fonts/

I wonder how to reflect the embedding exception you made for the license? Is that still GPL2, nevertheless?
