    Cascadia Code 2008.25 Released (August 26, 2020)

    This update to the Cascadia family of fonts brings the following changes:
    • We are now generating static TTFs for every named variant
      • These static instances will be hinted using ttfautohint, and so will look different than the variable font at small and intermediate point sizes
    • We've temporarily stopped shipping variable OTFs due to some concerns about overlapping and psautohint
    • The heaviest weight of Cascadia has been made a little lighter
    • We have aligned the Powerline glyphs and the box-/line-drawing glyphs better to their metrics and to the letter glyphs
    • Diacritic anchors have been added to all alphabetic characters (#282, #330)
    • The font now ships with decomposed fi and fl ligatures
    • The horn combining diacritic has had its weight fixed somewhat for Bold
    • Primes have been redesigned to give them a more "angled" feel (#294)
    • Acute and grave have been given additional weight to help differentiate them from dot (#268)
    • The contextual alternate for x used to signify hexadecimal numbers has been disabled (#285)

    As this is a Microsoft font I am disappointed that they don't make it easier to update. Having to manually remove previous copies and reinstall the updated version is far more tedious than it needs to be.
