libertinus-fonts – The Libertinus font family

This is a fork of the Linux Libertine and Linux Biolinum fonts that started as an OpenType math companion of the Libertine font family, but grown as a full fork to address some of the bugs in the fonts.

The family consists of:

  • Libertinus Serif: forked from Linux Libertine.
  • Libertinus Sans: forked from Linux Biolinum.
  • Libertinus Mono: forked from Linux Libertine Mono.
  • Libertinus Math: an OpenType math font for use in OpenType math-capable applications like Lua, or MS Word 2007+.
