STIX Version 2.0.0 Development Update
Since its inception, the main focus of the STIX font project has been the creation and maintenance of a world-class math font suitable for use in scientific and technical publishing. To date, the text portion of STIX has not benefitted from a similar level of attention.
On May 28, 2014, the STIpub companies announced that Version 2.0.0, the next generation of STIX, was under development with a target release date of early 2015. The development required to achieve our desired level of quality and improvements took longer than anticipated and we are now targetting a release in the third quarter of 2016.
Version 2.0.0 will focus on providing a greatly improved text portion of the font that will meet the high standards expected by scientific and technical publishing professionals and researchers. In addition, the math portion of the font will be refined, improving the font's internal consistency and compatibility with various math typesetting systems. The completed STIX 2.0.0 fonts will provide a single, unified solution for all aspects of technical typesetting. Development of STIX version 2.0.0 is being performed under a contract with renowned typeface developer Tiro Typeworks.
