Ahoy. It's been a couple years since I've posted last, but here I am.
I wanted to announce that the author of the popular Fixedsys Excelsior
font (the Unicode variety of mIRC's default Fixedsys.fon) has agreed to put out another update with mIRC especially in mind.
Fixedsys Excelsior was initially created some 9 years ago, and hasn't been updated in almost 5 years. A lot has changed in the font world since; OpenType, new Unicode standards, more languages, etc. So the objective is to make a really modern Unicode font that mIRC 7.x can be proud of.
I'm here asking if anyone would like to give input and suggestions or might like to help out in any way. The font currently sports 5,992 characters over a multitude of languages, including some graphic/dingbat type elements (and even cursive!). If there are any really important scripts that should be added, or if you think you can draw some glyphs (similar to drawing icons), pitch in!
Here's a list of scripts already supported:http://www.fixedsysexcelsior.com/information/scripts.gif
