GNOME 3 gets a new font [download]

GNOME 3 will ship with many exciting new features we already know about but here’s another to chalk up to the list: a new font!

The font, a ‘Humanist sans-serif’ family titled ‘Cantarell’, isn’t actually that new* – it’s already available as one of Google’s ‘web fonts’.

Paul Cutler, reporting on news from the Gnome Boston Summit, writes: -

"The new font is designed by David Crossland who is a big believer in open design and is also hosted on GNOME’s git servers."
