We’re excited to announce the long-awaited version 6 release of Charis SIL, Doulos SIL, Gentium Plus, and Andika. This release is full of new features and important improvements. Some highlights:

  • new bold and italic weights in Andika and Gentium Plus
  • additional character support
  • new and enhanced features
  • improved screen rendering on Windows
  • WOFF2 web fonts that are only one third the size of TTF fonts
  • many, many other fixes and improvements

See individual font websites for details, including some important notes about the changes may affect you. Note that this is a major upgrade. This may cause document reflow as some glyphs widths have changed and some features have been removed. Please do not assume that you can replace version 5 with version 6 with no resulting changes to your publications.

You can get the new fonts from the project websites:
