This package is a convenient way to install both the PCF bitmap version and the scalable TrueType outline version of GNU Unifont. It also installs a copy of unifont.hex and related files in /usr/share/unifont. GNU Unifont was designed to render something besides an empty box for each visible Unicode character in the Basic Multilingual Plane (Plane 0). Plane 0 contains most of the world's modern writing scripts. This font looks best at 12pt. Complex fonts (such as Indic or Semitic scripts, where letters change shape depending on their position in a word, or such as Mongolian, which is written vertically) will not render perfectly. The philosophy behind this font, though, is that anything meaningful is better than an empty box for a unknown glyph.

2013-01-12 - Samuel Bronson <email@example.com> unifont (1:5.1.20080914-1.3) unstable; urgency=low * Non-maintainer upload. * debian/rules: Split and inline "install" target into "binary-arch" and "binary-indep" and adjust dependencies. (Without this, "dpkg-buildpackage -B" ends up running the build-indep rules and dying on the buildds.) * debian/rules: Also fix so dpkg-buildpackage -j works, and only builds the font files once.
2013-01-10 - Samuel Bronson <firstname.lastname@example.org> unifont (1:5.1.20080914-1.2) unstable; urgency=low [ Samuel Bronson ] * Non-maintainer upload. * Actually build the font files, using build-arch and build-indep to avoid killing any buildds. (Closes: #697902) * Don't include bogus glyphs for unallocated (as of Unicode 5.1) or private-use characters. (Closes: #584672) [ Paul Wise ] * Place the newly compiled fonts in precompiled dir after build.
2011-07-20 - Christian Perrier <email@example.com> unifont (1:5.1.20080914-1.1) unstable; urgency=low * Non-maintainer upload to achieve release goal of getting rid of defoma.
2008-09-07 - Paul Hardy <firstname.lastname@example.org> unifont (1:5.1.20080914-1) unstable; urgency=low * Changed unifont.ttf location in defoma-hints file. (Closes: #498874) * Modified src/hex2sfd to superimpose combining diacritical marks on top of preceding glyphs in TrueType font as per the Unicode Standard. (Closes: #497326) * Modified "cp -a" ==> "cp -p" and eliminated "install -t" in Makefiles for BSD Unix compatibility. * Renamed "combining.txt" to "combining.dat" because it is a data file. * Generated new font/precompiled/unifont.ttf font from the above changes.
2008-08-20 - Paul Hardy <email@example.com> unifont (1:5.1.20080820-1) unstable; urgency=low * Replaced Hangul Syllables block with glyphs in unifont.bdf file in Debian bf-utf-source package, originally from the Debian xfonts-baekmuk package (Closes: #495729) - Avoids license ambiguity of unifont's original Hanterm fonts - Brings two diverging Debian copies of the unifont font closer together * Deleted references to and all derivative copies of any Hanterm fonts * Changed unifont package description in debian/control to mention that the package now installs /usr/share/unifont/unifont.hex and other files and is no longer just a metapackage (Closes: #494662)
2008-08-09 - Paul Hardy <firstname.lastname@example.org> unifont (1:5.1.20080808-2) unstable; urgency=low * Install unifont.hex [and other files while I was at it] in /usr/share/unifont for GRUB (Closes: #494473) - unifont.hex provides glyphs with no combining circles, etc. and is the same file as font/compiled/unifont-5.1.20080808.hex - unifontfull.hex provides glyphs with combining circles, etc. and is the same file as font/compiled/unifontfull-5.1.20080808.hex. If editing hex glyphs, this file is the master version to edit; unifont.hex is generated from this full version -- see uniunmask(1) for details. - combining.txt lists all Unicode 5.1 code points that are combining glyphs, and hence should have zero-width. - README gives a brief description of the above three files * Corrected typos in the previous changelog entry.
