Doulos SIL 5.000 (official release)

Current Release:

The current release is not available here. See the main download page.

Doulos SIL 4.112 (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 (DoulosSIL-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 Doulos SIL 4.110. Below the download packages for this maintenance release is the official release of "Doulos SIL".

Doulos SIL Compact (This font is created by TypeTuner Web, by setting the "Line spacing" feature to "Tight", and will not be able to 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.

Doulos SIL 4.102 (official release)

This version supports Unicode 5.0!

Note

This font fixes a bug which was in version 4.100: In InDesign and XeTeX (and probably any other application which uses true small caps) the OpenType small cap feature will not work properly, nor will any application-specific fallback mechanism. This release fixes it so that the fallback mechanism will work (e.g. they will not be true small caps, they will be created on-the-fly). This is the only change in this release.

These fonts are identical to the main Doulos SIL fonts, except that the default forms for 'a' and 'g' have been changed to those often preferred by literacy specialists - single-story 'a' and single-bowl 'g'. Note the following:

  • OpenType and Graphite features may not work as expected, and particularly those that interact with the Literacy Alternates feature.
  • Diacritic placement may not be ideal in some cases, although we've tried to be sure that this works in most situations.
  • This font is a one-off special version, and is not likely to be updated alongside future versions of Doulos SIL.
  • This font is also released under the SIL Open Font License, but we strongly encourage you to use the main Doulos SIL release as the source for any derivative versions.

If you encounter problems, your best solution is to use the main Doulos SIL font release.
