Another shot at a programming font

I've created a narrow monospaced bitmap font for programming and plan to release it to the Public Domain. Some inspirations were Espy Sans, Dina and a few 5×7 dot matrix fonts I've found on the 'net.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I’m not sure if the florin is used in any coding languages, but that f might be confused with one.

I like what you've done with the numerals.

The way it runs together sometimes, it would probably be worthwhile to try to make an ampersand with a right sidebearing.

After some research: the florin isn’t used in any programming language (at least the most popular 50 according to TIOBE), but Mac users use it for “folder”. I’ve tried a few alternatives for the f and the nicest one was B with a one-pixel descender.

The & looks a little squished now, but it doesn’t disturb the surrounding letters anymore.
