+Noto Sans CJK 1.002 Release Notes
+April 20, 2015
+This release includes a license change, the addition of several new font instances, and a
+number of bug fixes.
+The open source license is changed from Apache License, Version 2.0 to SIL Open Font
+License, Version 1.1.
+New Font Instances
+In total eight (4 languages x 2 weights) monospaced half-width OTF fonts were added, in
+regular and bold weights.
+ - Noto Sans Mono CJK SC Regular and Bold
+ - Noto Sans Mono CJK JP Regular and Bold
+ - Noto Sans Mono CJK KR Regular and Bold
+ - Noto Sans Mono CJK TC Regular and Bold
+The monospace fonts differ from the existing ones only in that the default (encoded)
+glyphs for ASCII (U+0020 to U+007E), U+00A0 ( ), U+00A5 (¥), U+2011 (‑), and U+20A9 (₩)
+are half-width instead of proportional.
+The new monospace fonts can be found in:
+ - All-in-one CJK super OTC font (now includes 36 font instances)
+ - CJK OTF fonts with different default language (two additional font instances for each
+ - NotoSansCJK-Regular.ttc and NotoSansCJK-Bold.ttc (four additional font instances in
+Although eight new font instances were added, the footprint of the super OTC only
+increased by 1M or so, mainly due to the four additional 'cmap' tables. Two of the seven
+OTC now contain eight font instances.

+Noto Sans CJK 1.001 Release Notes
+September 12, 2014
+With this release there have been a number of bug fixes and some
+reorganization of the packages. The package reorganization carries with it
+a small name change that affects the name of the file, menu name, and the
+internal PostScript name of the original OTF format font. This is a one
+time name change only and names will be stable going forward.
+There have been a number of fixes but the two most obvious ones are the fix
+in the alignment of the traditional Chinese punctuation and adjustment of
+the designs used for traditional Chinese to align better for usage in Hong
+With this release there was an expansion in the number of file formats and
+combinations in which the fonts are being made available.
+There are now four major groups of font files by package in this release.
+* Super OpenType Collection (Super OTC)
+ - This is a new format this release that bundles all 7 weights for all 4
+ languages into one large font resource. It is smaller overall than
+ the combination of the 28 fonts that would be used otherwise because
+ of resource sharing and it is much easier to install.
+* OpenType Collection (OTC)
+ - Each OTC fully supports each of the four languages. There are 7 of these
+ with one for each weight.
+* Language Specific OTF
+ - Each font file supports each of the four languages by using the OpenType
+ ‘locl’ feature. However, by default, when the ‘locl’ feature is not
+ used, each font file supports a specific language. That means that
+ there are 28 font files - 4 languages x 7 weights.
+ - This format of 4 language specific variants is new with this release and
+ replaces the previous single language variant that required the use of
+ the ‘locl’ feature. This is where the name change occurred as we now
+ tag the various versions with the name of the default language.
+* Region Specific OTF subsets
+ - Each font file supports a region specific subset of the full fonts.
+ These contain only the glyphs needed for the specific region. There
+ are 28 of these font files - 4 languages x 7 weights.
