This file provides detailed information on the NotCourier font software.
This information should be distributed along with the NotCourier fonts
and any derivative works.

Basic Font Information

NotCourier is a re-interpretation of Nimbus Mono and was designed in
Wroclaw at the occasion of Libre Graphics Meeting (LGM 2008).  For more
detailed information:

We took Nimbus as the base of the design. We proceeded to remove the
serifs with raw cuts. We did not soften the edges. We are not here to be
polite.  See the file NotCourierSans-work.png included in this package.

NotCourier currently provides the following Unicode coverage:

- Basic Latin: 95/95 
- Latin-1 Supplement: 93/96
- Latin Extended-A: 128/128
- Latin Extended-B: 7/208
- Cyrillic: 197/256
- Latin Extended Additional 90/256
- General Punctuation: 16/107

### Notes:

- lower case x-height cyrillic characters are different from latin
  characters in the bold version -- not fixed yet;
- didn't verify yet if all repeated vectors were replaced with
  references - if has, shouldn't be that much;
- didn't verify yet if all serifs were removed from cyrillic characters
  -- if has, shouldn't be that much;
- didn't test the typefaces with cyrillic text intensivelly, since i'm
  not russian, ukranian or bielo-russian fluent...


(This should list both major and minor changes, most recent first.)
