FontAwesome 4.5.0 Just Released!


#1

Hi Blogger.

I and you also are familier with FontAwesome icons. It’s being used by probably, 98% of bloggers here. That’s why I am posting this topic here to give news about FontAwesome icons.

Dave Gandy (creator of those icons) have just released new version of FontAwesome Icons. This new icons contain:

  • Updated versions of Google icons.
  • New 20 icons excepting Google icons.

And the new stylesheet can be used by adding this url in your template:

<link href='https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.5.0/css/font-awesome.min.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'/>

The link I have given above is compressed version of FontAwesome icons. Now, you can remove any previous FontAwesome link hrefs.

Pros: Now you can get 20 icons and updated google icons.

Cons: Some of the icons are not supported in Internet Explorer 8 or previous. If you want all supported icons, please install icons of version 3. (it’s version 4.5.0).

Thanks.

Have a wonderful day. :smile:
