Completed in November 2010, this new version however, is much more than an upgrade. Not only was it extended with two versions of newly designed italics and a generous amount of features & alternate characters — it was completely redrawn, refined and extensively spaced & kerned (with the extensive help from Igino Marini-iKern) to fully excel in all its applications. Quite certainly for text and even more so for headlines, by introducing a unique new Display cut for all weights and styles.
