The New FF Chartwell
At long last, the new FF Chartwell has been released! Four new styles of graphs now accompany the family. The fonts have been released through the FontFont foundry; you may have noticed the FF prefixed to the name. It is a great honor to have worked with their awesome and experienced team.
The transition to FontFont brings a new EULA. The biggest change is that webfont licenses are no longer available. All previous licenses are still valid, and support will continue to be provided. You can still access the old documentation here.
There are no immediate plans to release the new designs as webfonts, but that could change depending on demand or more elegant solutions. If you’d like to see webfonts come back, make sure to let FontFont know.
The new fonts also feature a revised alphabet and beefed up character set for wider language support. Previous users should also note that the charts are now activated by Stylistic Slternates and Stylistic Set 1, rather than the ligature feature.
