Microsoft releases new open source font Cascadia Code

Microsoft released a new open source font today on the company’s GitHub website. The new font, called Cascadia Code, was announced at Microsoft’s Build event in May.

It is a monospaced font designed specifically for code editors, development environments as well as terminal applications.

Microsoft developed it “hand in hand” with the new Windows Terminal application that the company released as a preview in June 2019. The font is available as a standalone download and will also be included in the next Windows Terminal application update according to Microsoft.

Windows users who download the font to their system can right-click on it to install it right away or select preview to display a preview window.

The preview displays all major characters of the font as well as how it looks in different font sizes. The window has a print and install button to print it out or install it from the window as well.

Users who use other operating systems may install the font as well. How that is done depends on the Linux distribution; Ubuntu and Ubuntu-based systems accept the command fc-cache -f -v  to install new fonts that have been put into font directories.

The font distinguishes clearly between 0, o and O, and I and l which helps reduce the number of character-based errors, e.g. miss-typed variables, significantly.

Cascadia Code supports programming ligatures. These may work out of the box in some development environments and need to be enabled in others. Developers who use Visual Studio Code need to enable Ligatures in the settings to use them in the programming environment.

Ligatures combine characters when you write them. For example, if you type != you get ≠, and when you type >= you get ≥ instead which may improve readability of the code.

The name comes from the Windows Terminal project initially as it was known as project Cascadia internally at Microsoft. The company did not just pick the name but polled users on Twitter and Cascadia won the vote (beating Cedar, Emerald, and Seattle in the process albeit some by a slim margin).

Microsoft added Code to the name of the font to indicate that it was designed specifically for coding purposes, but it can certainly be used for other purposes as well.

The font’s version follows the Windows versioning scheme; the first release version of Cascadia Code is version 1909.16 indicating that it was released on September 16, 2019 to the public.

Web Browser Vivaldi 2.8 has been released

Norwegian company Vivaldi Technologies released a new version of the company’s Vivaldi web browser on September 20, 2019 to the public.

Vivaldi 2.8 is an update for the desktop web browser that improves the browser’s synchronization functionality to better support the recently released Android version of Vivaldi.

Vivaldi released the first Android version in September 2019 as a beta app with some handy features such as the improved tab switching interface or note taking functionality.

The mobile browser was a much requested feature by the Vivaldi community. Sync has been built-into the mobile browser from the get-go to synchronize data between different devices.

Vivaldi users may sync data between multiple Android devices but also between desktop and Android devices to ensure that their personal data is always available regardless of device they are using.

Vivaldi Technologies highlights synchronization improvements as the main new feature in Vivaldi 2.8.

With Vivaldi’s new version on desktop, users can expect improvements across the board while navigating on their devices. Users can now take Vivaldi – and their Bookmarks and Speed Dials, saved passwords and autofill information, History (with only typed URLs) and uniquely Notes – everywhere.

Users can sign-up for a free Vivaldi account to use the sync functionality. All it takes then is to sign-in under Vivaldi Menu > Settings > Sync to synchronize data between devices.

Tip: you get a Vivaldi email account when you sign-up for an account. While there is little information on the promised email client at this point, it is still probable that Vivaldi will introduce it in the future (similar to how classic Opera featured a built-in email client).

Vivaldi 2.8 features additional improvements; engineers resolved several bugs and issues and “polished” some rough edges. The company notes that Vivaldi 2.8 should feel a lot “snappier and efficient”. The entire changelog is listed on the official Vivaldi Blog post.

The Chromium version that Vivaldi is based on was upgraded to version 77.0.3865.78.

Closing Words

Making sure that sync works fine and without any issues is one of the most important steps after the release of the first Android version of Vivaldi. Vivaldi users may sync some or all browsing data between devices to have access to the data on desktop and mobile Android devices.

Next milestone is the release of a stable version of Vivaldi for Android.

Now You: Have you used Vivaldi recently?
