Following last month's release of Unicode 7.0, the GNU Unifont project is out with an open-source glyph for each printable code point in the Unicode 7.0 Plane 0 standard.

Besides Unifont 7.0.x covering the Plane 0 / Basic Multilingual Plane, Unifont is also working on support for Plane 1, the Supplemental Multilingual Plane, and ConScript Unicode Registry coverage. Unifont also continues to provide utilities for modifying this Unicode font that's an official GNU Project.

Those interested in Unifont can find more details via the GNU project page and the Unifont 7.0.3 point release was just announced to info-gnu.
