Note: these were originally the release notes for 4.2.2 but they’ve been updated for 4.2.12. We don’t recommend you use 4.2.2-4.2.9 as they’re broken for a majority of users due to issues not caught in internal testing.
We are extremely pleased to announce Font Manager 4.2.12, out of beta at last!
Through our partnerships and collaborative efforts, we’ve managed to craft the best release yet: with a refined UI, fixes for arm64 users, and download backend improvements.
When you launch Font Manager v4.2.12, you’ll be greeted with a brand new UI, with speedier loading times, and slicker transitions. We’ve also simplified getting places, and made some essential functions take less time to get there. In addition, we’ve silenced some annoying debugging, and improved error handling and error messages, so if something goofs up, you can jump back in. We’ve crafted this release to get out of your way, and to provide you the best experience possible! Heck, it even installs faster.
Below you will find a more detailed changelog.
