For the current download of Lateef, please see the main Lateef download page.

Please note: There are two licensing options

Version 1.0 of Lateef was released as copyrighted freeware. All subsequent versions have been released under SIL’s Open Font License instead.

We released Lateef 1.001 under the Open Font License. In almost all respects version 1.001 is almost exactly the same as the 1.0 version. The only differences are:

  • The change to Open Font License
  • The addition of SIL TypeTuner tables to make it possible to access alternate behaviors of the fonts. To download fonts with alternate behaviors, visit TypeTuner Web.

Thus, fonts are licensed in two different ways on this page:

  • Lateef 1.001 and later, released under the Open Font License
  • Lateef 1.0rc1, released as copyrighted freeware, with OpenType and AAT font technologies
