One of the new features of the upcoming release
of Irrlicht is the new Font tool, created by gaz
. Personally, I really like it, not only because it was written in Irrlicht itself and uses its included graphical user interface:
Since the first release, a lot of people where asking for a better font support, now you have it. Irrlicht will be able to use anti aliased, vector based, alpha channeled fonts as well as the old fonts consisting of just one single image file. Until now, it was difficult to use fonts with a character set other than ANSI, now it won't be a problem anymore. Great.
