Current Release:

Andika 1.004 (maintenance release)

The only change in this maintenance release is a change in the Graphite feature identifiers from integers to 4-character alphanumeric tags. This was required because although  Mozilla Firefox has now implemented support for Graphite, feature identifiers only work if they are 4-character alphanumeric tags. If you would like to use these features in Firefox,  this webpage describes how to access font features. The font download contains a document (Andika-features.pdf) which describes the old and new feature identifiers. Existing documents (such as those created by LibreOffice/OpenOffice) which use the old identifiers will need to be changed to use the new identifiers. Future releases will use the new 4-character alphanumeric tags.

Unless you wish to use the font features in  Mozilla Firefox, you should continue using Andika 1.002. Below the download packages for this maintenance release is the official release of "Andika".

Andika Compact (these fonts were created by SIL TypeTuner, by setting the "Line spacing" feature to "Tight", and they cannot be TypeTuned again)

Warning

Any of our Roman fonts that have had the linespacing changed to a tighter setting could potentially have "clipping" of diacritics if there is more than one diacritic above a tall character. This is normally just a screen problem. When the page is printed, the diacritics will print.
