Scooter Graphics has announced an update to its Nu Sans family of fonts. Changes feature support for Mac OS 9.0.4 and both TrueType and PostScript availability. According to Scooter Graphics:
Nu Sans is inspired by Apple Computer's Espy Sans bitmap font. Espy Sans was going to appear in Copland, but instead we got Charcoal in Mac OS 8.0. Nu Sans brings the most aesthetically pleasing element of that abandoned project to your screen and your printer.
Version 9.4 is now available in PostScript and TrueType flavors. The TrueType Nu Sans uses hand-edited TrueType instructions to increase readability at all point sizes. This version adds information on Adobe Type Reunion Deluxe, System 9.0.4 and reduces the size of the demo download.
Nu Sans features:
Includes the Euro Symbol
Much nicer printed and on-screen appearance than any previous version of Nu Sans
Registered users can select Nu Sans-Bold as the default system font (Mac OS 8.0 - 9.0 and Win 95 & 98)
You can use Nu Sans at any point size--without getting the jaggies
Registered users get the whole Nu Sans family (regular, bold, italic and bold italic)--great for web browsing
Nu Sans, with its high x-height, is a very readable font, on-screen and on the printed page
The rest of the "Nu" family of fonts go great together.

Nu Sans costs US$12 for 4 shareware fonts and the update is free to registered users. You can find more information at Scooter Graphics' site.
