April 2014 Project of the Month, Free Pascal | SourceForge Community Blog

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/16

Thanks Olivier SCHWAB for pointing me to this nice interview with Florian Klämpfl on SourceForge about April 2014 Project of the Month, Free Pascal | SourceForge Community Blog.

Two things I didn’t know yet:

  • FreePascal started in the Turbo Pascal era (the first version was before Delphi 1.0 got released) as a 32-bit compiler project.
  • FreePascal 3.0 will support jvm output (like Oxygene does).

Besides Florian, there are quite a few more people on the FreePascal team. I met most of them at last years PasCon: really nice guys.

New Open Source monospaced font from Adobe: Source Code Pro

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/09/30

Last week, Adobe launched the monospaced Open Source font Source Code Pro designed by Paul D. Hunt.

It is a follow-up of the (also designed by Paul) Source Sans Pro family of Open Source Fonts which got released early last month.

I did a quick look to see if it would get the same number of vertical lines as Lucida Console does at 8 points.

  • Lucida Console: 50 lines
  • Source Code Pro: 40 lines

Too bad, as the general font design is awesome.

One big missing thing is italic/oblique, which is often used in code editors. Hopefully a future version will include those.

For embedding source code examples in documentation, it is very legible, so I will keep it installed on my system.

You can try Source Code Pro yourself as well: it is available on SourceForge – that also hosts Open@Adobeon GitHub, where you can fork it, as well as on Google Web Fonts, on typekit, and on WebINK.
