Based on the Fira Sans 4.3 glyph set, FiraGO now supports Arabic, Devanagari, Georgian, Hebrew and Thai. With this script support, FiraGO catches up with other globally extended and free typefaces such as Noto.
We decided to introduce FiraGO as a new product. That way, users of Fira Sans can also install FiraGO.
Many thanks to Erik Spiekermann for making it possible to extend the project Fira.
Feedback and ideas as well as funding for further development are always welcome!

For several reasons, we decided to establish FiraGO as a new product. That way users of FiraSans can also install FiraGO without any conflict.
