Junicode 0.6.7 Now at Sourceforge

Peter Baker has moved Junicode to Sourceforge.org. According to an email he sent to the Digital Medievalist list, recent additions to Junicode 0.6.7 "include characters in all styles for the transliteration of medieval Arabic and characters and OpenType features to support African languages."

Junicode (short for Junius-Unicode) is a Unicode font for medievalists. The current version is a beta; the selection of characters and the arrangement of the Private Use Area are subject to change. Your comments, suggestions and bug reports will be a great help to me as I complete the project.

Junicode currently contains 1768 characters in the regular style (the italic, bold and bold italic styles are less complete). It implements these Unicode ranges completely:

* Basic Latin
* Latin 1 Supplement
* Latin Extended A
* Latin Extended B
* IPA Extensions
* Spacing Modifier Letters
* Combining Diacritical Marks
* Runic
* Phonetic Extensions
* Latin Extended Additional
* Number Forms
* Enclosed Alphanumerics
