Ubuntu font ‘monospace’ variant hits Ubuntu font testing PPA

A beta release of the Ubuntu font family’s mono-spacedvariant has been made available to users of the ubuntu-font-beta-testing PPA.

This mono-spaced version joins the regular, italic, bold, medium and ‘thin’ versions already available in various states of readiness online.

Anyone who helped to beta test previous versions of the Ubuntu font will still have access to the testing PPA. Just sign in to your Launchpad account and, on your profile page under ‘Personal Package Archives’ click the ‘View your private PPA subscriptions’ link.
