New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
It’s done (at last!):
Looks promising. And in this thread Yuri comments on some of the features that will be included in a coming release and what is already included:
How come there has not been an official press release here already?
I wanted to let you know that my typeface Manicotti is now available for licensing on MyFonts. It was honored by the Type Directors Club in 2007, and since then I've expanded it to include lowercase, unicase, more swash variants, and ornaments. Manicotti was a whole lot of fun to draw, so I'm hoping that it is equally fun to use!
David Brezina's successful type family Skolar has been expanded with a full Cyrillic character set. It supports 32 languages using Cyrillic script, besides most of the Slavic languages, many Asian and non-Slavic languages are covered too. It also supports Serbian italic alternates and “new” Bulgarian stylistics. Skolar Cyrillic has been designed as a close complement to Latin with the help of the experienced designer and consultant Alexandra Korolkova, and it has already earned its first awards at Modern Cyrillic 2009 and Granshan 2009.

I am happy to announce that Anglaise is now for sale on MyFonts.
Mostly designers deliver a PDF preview of their font(s) when one in made. About how it's made, how it looks, blabla. What is your opinion about what should be in it? And which already excisting promotions do you think are good?
I'm trying to make one for myself (more like a catalog but well designed), containing my font collection.
Happy to announce my first "family".
This is a tall, slim monospaced dekor font, a fun, a spin-off of a previous experiment.
This was also the first quite serious project of my (foundry) to achieve a system.
More info at my (also new) site.
Hope you will like it.

Dez Boulder is a Strong-Brewed OpenType display face with Multiple Personalities.
Dezcom Typefaces is proud to announce the release of "Dez Boulder," a rock-on typeface with three personalities on display.
The Dez Boulder family of display faces acts in a supporting role to give meaning to message and context to content. It is a very bold face, not understated. Each of its three personalities (and their sub-personalities) have a different timbre to speak the nuance of your message in a bold voice. Dez Boulder works like a character actor, presenting the author’s lines but not with the deadpan delivery of a news reporter. Boulder develops the role, adding meaning through facial expression, gesture, and body language.
DSType just released Mafra, my debut typeface!
A type family suited both for editorial and corporate design, available in five weights, ranging from Light to Black with matching italics. Mafra is a contemporary typeface with plenty of style, asymmetrical and very dynamic serifs, and pleasent openness and balance.
As always I would love to know what you guys think about it!
Check it out at www.dstype.com.

P22 announces new releases for March- 2 new fonts by Terry Wudenbachs for IHOF, based on designs from the Nebiolo Type Foundry.
P22 Slogan is a non-connecting script font that captures the essence of the lettering used in 1950s European advertising. Bold strokes of this brush-drawn face make this design a great choice for both retro design and contemporary work. The font is based on the 1957 design "Slogan" by Aldo Novarese for the Italian Nebiolo Type Foundry. At the time of its original release, it was touted for "striking publicity work". This new digitization accurately reproduces the outlines of the original not found in previous digital versions of this design. P22 Slogan is a non-Pro Opentype font that includes Central European characters.
P22 Nebiornaments contains over 100 ornaments based on the Italian Nebiolo Type Foundry designs of the 1950s. Many of these ornaments are designed to create complex patterns and continuous borders. The simple geometric shapes allow for endless combinations for a wide variety of uses.
For Immediate Release:
Buffalo, NY- February 3rd, 2010
P22 Type Foundry and the International House of Fonts announce 3 new font families for February designed by Norwegian type designer Torleiv Sverdrup for IHOF.

Greater Albion's next two releases are imminent-Granville inspired by Victorian era shop signage, and Federal Streamliner, based on lettering seen shooting past on the side of an old railway carriage!
These should appear in the next day or so on Myfonts. In the meantime there are previews on our blog.
Just a quick heads up to let you all know that we (Colophon Foundry), have just released Fortescue & Fortescue Pro. A new serif typeface with stylistic pointy serifs.
The Pro set comes complete with extended characters for use in Eastern & Central European languages. Full OpenType features include contextual ligatures, discretional ligatures, superior & inferior numbers, fractions, oldstyle proportional figures, proportional and tabular lining figures and a full set of small caps. Please note that the pro set features are in addition to the standard weights.

Let us know what you think.
TypeTogether is proud to announce the release of Etica, a strong yet delicate sans serif.
Etica, the-moralist-typefamily-project, was born at the end of 2000, but its development is ongoing, overcoming many hurdles and diversions. On one hand, the original idea was spurred by a certain esteem for Helvetica, in particular, its strength and versatility, and on the other, an intolerance to its plenty but inadequate applications; created by those who erroneously consider it to be a neutral and timeless design.
We believe that Helvetica is a beautiful typeface, but very deeply rooted in its own era. It is often unsuitably used in contexts that have changed profoundly since its birth. From this initial intention, we coined the ironic payoff ‘The-Moralist-Typeface’.
You would like to express tradition by using a contemporary font? Sintesi might be exactly what you are looking for.
Sintesi stands for synthesis: the unification of serif and sans-serif into a contemporary font, which surprises with different facets depending on its application.
In copy size Sintesi performs like a sans-serif. It is a compact and well readable font that fulfills all requirements of modern digital media.
In larger sizes, Sintesi unfolds its traditional character. Now, its strong contrast and the perceptible feather-ductus stand out clearly, as we appreciate it in a historical old style face.
Greater Albion's two latest projects, Adantine and Corvone are at the point of being released on Myfonts.com. In the meantime, here are some samples of the two families in action on our blog.
