Lato version 1.104 released!

We have just released Lato ver­sion 1.104.

With the release of ver­sion 1.103 over a week ago, I wrote:

We decided to “split” the release. The fonts intended for peo­ple to down­load and use in desk­top appli­ca­tions were to be FontLab-​​​​autohinted while the fonts that should be deployed at Google Web Fonts should use ttfautohint.

Ver­sion 1.104 makes the split­ting unnec­es­sary. Now we just have one com­mon ver­sion which works well every­where: it ren­ders nicely in Win­dows grayscale, Win­dows ClearType, Mac OS X, iOS and in Adobe appli­ca­tions. We’ve helped Werner Lem­berg to fix the bugs in ttfau­to­hint, so it is no longer “ttfau­toshred”, and we could use it to pro­duce ver­sion 1.104.

You can down­load ver­sion 1.104 by click­ing on the down­load link on the right of this page. Enjoy!


  1. Mam prob­lem z waszą czcionką.
    Wari­anty nor­mal i blod wyglą­dają w ten sposób: http://​4img​.pl/​i​m​a​g​e​s​/​e​x​u​j​x​j​f​u​0​g​y​7​y​b​f​a​y​4​3​.​jpg http://​4img​.pl/​i​m​a​g​e​s​/​y​j​z​8​2​c​a​4​f​0​6​w​2​u​i​v​k​p​x​o​.​jpg

    Thin i hair­line wyglą­dają nor­mal­nie.
    Spotkaliś­cie się z czymś takim?
    Sys­tem to Arch Linux x64, najnowszy skom­pi­lowany font­con­fig i libfreetype.

  2. Kamil, wygląda na to, że masz lokalnie zain­stalowaną wer­sję wcześniejszą niż 1.0.4. Ściąg­nij jeszcze raz, starą usuń.

  3. Please fix the link – it down­loads ver­sion 1.0.3. Can’t find the new release any­where, and 1.0.3 is not print­ing cor­rectly out of Adobe Photoshop.

  4. Hi Łukasz and Adam,
    please upload the new ver­sion of Lato to Google Web­fonts. They still have a cor­rupted ver­sion (though Win­dows says its v.1.104)
    The file “Lato-Regular.ttf” from Google is 120936 bytes, the “Lato-Reg.ttf” from the zip avail­able here is 120196 bytes.
    Thank you!

  5. Hi Adam, Hi Łukasz,

    the Lato Fonts at Google’s web­font col­lec­tion are still the wrong ones. If you down­load from there, the ver­sion num­ber says 1.104 but the files are iden­ti­cal to the old defect files. The “real” v. 1.104 is the one you offer in the zip here. These files are dif­fer­ent from the ones found at Google.

    Could you please put the files you have here also on Google?
    I’m not sure many peo­ple will make the effort to find a cor­rected ver­sion when they see the font break­ing in Adobe Illus­tra­tor or InDesign.

    Keep up the good work!

  6. Hi Łukasz and Adam,

    Google Web­fonts still has the bro­ken Lato. If you get it from there, Win­dows says it’s ver­sion 1.104, but the files are not the same as the ones in the Zip that you have for down­load here.
    Please send the cor­rect ver­sion also to Google Web­fonts. It would be a shame if peo­ple couldn’t use Lato in Adobe products.

    Keep up the good work!

  7. Where exactly is wrong link?“
    At Google Web­fonts… They still have the cor­rupt files! Com­pare the file sizes.
