This page contains versions of Scheherazade previous to the currently released version. See the main Scheherazade page for current versions, including any beta versions that may be available. That page also contains information on contributors, installation, use, and related packages.

License

Please note: There are two licensing options

Version 1.0 of Scheherazade was released as copyrighted freeware. All subsequent versions have been released under SIL's Open Font License instead.

We released ScheherazadeRegOT 1.005 under the Open Font License. In almost all respects version 1.005 is almost exactly the same as the 1.0 version. The only differences are:

  • The change to Open Font License
  • The addition of SIL TypeTuner tables to make it possible to access alternate behaviors of the fonts. To download fonts with alternate behaviors, visit TypeTuner Web.

Thus you will find two download sections available on this page:

Open Font License

Scheherazade, versions 1.001 and beyond, are released under the SIL Open Font License - please read it carefully and do not download the font unless you agree to the terms of the license.
