Tinos is a part of the Chrome OS core fonts. The Chrome OS core fonts, also known as the Croscore fonts, are a collection of three TrueType font families: Arimo (sans-serif), Tinos (serif) and Cousine (monospace). These fonts are metrically compatible with Monotype Corporation’s Arial, Times New Roman, and Courier New, the most commonly used fonts on Microsoft Windows operating system, for which they are intended as open-source substitutes.
Google licenses these fonts from Ascender Corporation under the Apache License 2.0.
The fonts were originally developed by Steve Matteson as Ascender Sans and Ascender Serif, and were also the basis for the Liberation fonts licensed by Red Hat under another open source license. In July 2012, version 2.0 of the Liberation fonts, based on the Croscore fonts, was released under the SIL Open Font License.
Tinos was designed by Steve Matteson as an innovative, refreshing serif design that is metrically compatible with Times New Roman™. Tinos offers improved on-screen readability characteristics and the pan-European WGL character set and solves the needs of developers looking for width-compatible fonts to address document portability across platforms.
Updated in May 2013 with improved hinting and released under the Apache 2.0 license.
Vollkorn came into being as my first type designing attempt. I published the Regular in 2005 under a Creative-Commons-License. Until the counter finally collapsed two years later it had been downloaded thousands of times and used for web and print matters. It intends to be a quiet, modest and well working text face for bread and butter use. Unlike its examples in the book faces from the renaissance until today, it has dark and meaty serifs and a bouncing and healthy look. It might be used as body type as well as for headlines or titles. »Vollkorn« (pronounced »Follkorn«) is German for »wholemeal« which refers to the old term »Brotschrift«. It stood for the small fonts for every day use in hand setting times.
Vollkorn comes with numerous OpenType features, all demonstarted on its own website at vollkorn-typeface.com.
Pliska Font Package is modification of Tempora Font Package in the range of Cyrillic glyphs. The original Cyrillic glyphs (the range uni0410:uni044F) are included as *.locl glyphs. They could be used in Russian, Ukrainian and Serbian languages or through feature Stylistic Set 01 for any Cyrillic language. In the font family Pliska the Unicode range uni0410:uni044F consists of letter-form model known as Bulgarian Cyrillic (or better say – contemporary Cyrillic). The project ‘Pliska Font Package’ includes Pliska-Regular, Pliska-Bold, Pliska-Italic and Pliska-BoldItalic. The project is not completed. There will be more changes in the font family.
Libra Serif Modern is the reserved font name for the font, which is based on Libra Serif/Liberation Serif according to SIL Open Font License. Libra Serif Modern is intended to give a chance for using the so called Bulgarian Cyrillic letter form model as a default model for the Cyrillic glyphs in the Unicode range uni0410:uni044F. Libra Serif Modern expands the opportunities and avoids the limitations of WGL (Windows Glyph List) as a pan-European character set through particular use of Open Type .locl features and Open Type Style Sets features for Russian, Serbian and Macedonian languages. It makes Libra Serif Modern multilingual font in the field of Cyrillic languages.
