Although not strictly necessary, it is recommended to upgrade.
About one year ago I published the first public release of this Add-on (after about two years fully private development and some months closed beta testing).

Within that one year Font Awesome Manager seemingly has become somewhat popular and is now one of the Top 50 XenForo 2 Add-ons (ranked by the number of downloads).

I am happy that this Add-on seems to be useful for many users :)

So today I am publishing another bugfix / maintenance release to celebrate its first anniversay.

Thanks to all users for providing feedback and bug reports!

Bugs Fixed​

  • Fixed an issue with the installer when upgrading from 1.2.0 RC 3 or lower
  • Fixed missing CSS property display:block for embedded fonts which caused a little display glitch in Chrome
  • Fixed duotone icons getting rebuild if ony brands icons need to be rebuild

New Features​

None

Other Changes​

  • Added FAQ sections for Add-on / Style compatibility
  • Added FAQ intro section
  • Refined some FAQs

If you are not affected by any of those bugs there is no reason to upgrade!
Transfonter.org cannot be used any longer since about January 2022 as the service is actively blocking requests by XenForo.

Please note that it is therefore now a requirement for this Add-on to work that pyftsubset/fonttools can be used locally.

This can be done by
  1. Installing pyftsubset globally on the server
  2. By using a precompiled binary if the server is running on 64 Bit Linux
If none of those options can be used, the Add-on currently unfortunately can't be used at all (without tinkering with the HTTP User Agent used by XenForo which is discouraged)

Bugs Fixed​

  • Only execute auto-detection for pyftsubset if path is not set or empty

New Features​

None

Other Changes​

None

Bugs Fixed​

  • Removed empty src from placeholder font

New Features​

None

Other Changes​

  • Added FAQ section how to get help in case "nothing works"

There is no compelling reason to upgrade if your are currently running 1.2.0 RC 3 and you are not affected by the bugs fixed in 1.2.0 RC 4, 1.2.0 RC 5 and 1.2.0 .
Please note that some default values changed in 1.2.0 RC 5!

Bugs Fixed​

  • Added missing phrase kirby_fam_invalid_entity
  • Added missing phrase kirby_fam_pyftsubset_path_empty

New Features​

None

Other Changes​

  • Added icons eye and eye-slash to the list of regular icons
  • Default value for style property Enable Duotone icons is now Disabled
    If duotone icons are being used and the property has not been customized so far, this needs to be done after upgrading to this version
  • Set various options (like ignored templates, etc.) as Advanced, so they will now only be shown when displaying Advanced Options
  • Icon names entered in options (eg. Icons,. Light Icons, ...) are now being sorted and made unique upon saving

Bugs Fixed​

  • Added missing fa-* CSS classes for icons that are only being used in non-standard weights

New Features​

None

Reactions: Capitan Terror

Bugs Fixed​

  • Duotone icons were not usable if style option Load subsets only was enabled
    This bugfix significantly increases the subset size (by a factor of two) for the duotone font which could lead to reaching the transfonter.org limit of 5000 characters a lot easier.
    To mitigate this, duotone have been splitted into their own subset chunk, so this change will slow down rebuild time a little bit.
    Future versions will check if there are any styles that actually use duotone icons and skip building the subset if not.
  • HTTP/2 push (if enabled) was performed too liberally
  • Temporary files were not removed when using transfonter.org as processor
  • Uninitialized variable when importing languages

New Features​

None

Other Changes​

  • Improved documentation
  • Added support, FAQ and download URLs
