Abitare Sans 1.06 out now!

After the successful selling of Abitare Sans I decided to add and improve some glyphs


➊ Improvements

Almost all the design of the main Latin letters was changed to
improve text readability. All is more proportional and harmonious now.

The design of the curly quotes are changed to be more recognizable in texts.

Question mark, and its derived glyphs, are now more condensed and inspired to the design of the traditional serif typefaces.
Abitare Sans now has a more sharp geometric outline.

➋ Cyrillic set

Since v_1.06 Abitare Sans includes Cyrillic alphabet in all the 30 weights, both in Roman and Italic version.

Terminal Trading Chart

A command line chart system based on Unicode glyphs

Today I released on GitHub my idea of a trading chart based on Terminal or other command line applications.

The mixing of volumes data and prices data:
│ (Unicode U+2502) = small volumes
┃ (Unicode U+2503) = medium volumes
█ (Unicode U+2588) = big volumes
Red and green colors are used to have a more clear idea visually of the
percentage of selling and buying contracts referred on a defined time.
The simplification of the chart through a small grid helps to find the right moment for investing.

Feel free to contact me if you are interested in using this unprecedented chart system.
Feedbacks are welcome
