    UPDATE: Cascadia Code 1910.04

    Last Updated: 07 Oct 2019 at 09:53

    Cascadia Code is finally here! You can install it directly from the GitHub repository’s releases page or automatically receive it in the next update of Windows Terminal.

    Wait, what’s Cascadia Code?

    Cascadia Code was announced this past May at Microsoft’s Build event. It is the latest monospaced font shipped from Microsoft and provides a fresh experience for command line experiences and code editors. Cascadia Code was developed hand-in-hand with the new Windows Terminal application. This font is most recommended to be used with terminal applications and text editors such as Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code.

    Programming Ligatures

    Cascadia Code supports programming ligatures! Programming ligatures are most useful when writing code, as they create new glyphs by combining characters. This helps make code more readable and user-friendly for some people.

    👉 Note: If you are using Visual Studio Code, you will have to enable font ligatures in your settings in order to see them.

    Did we mention it’s open source?

    Yes, you heard right! Cascadia Code is licensed under the SIL Open Font license on GitHub, so feel free to contribute as you wish!

    👉 Note: There is currently no proper testing framework built into the repository, so all pull requests will have to be manually tested and validated. This will slow down pull request approvals, so please bear with us. 😊

    Why is it named Cascadia Code?

    The name Cascadia Code originated from the Windows Terminal project. Before it was released, the codename for Windows Terminal was Cascadia. In fact, some of the source files within the Terminal still use this name! As an homage to the Terminal, we liked the idea of naming the font after its codename.

    We added Code to the end of the font name to help indicate that this font was intended for programming. Specifically, it helps identify that it includes programming ligatures.

    To ensure Cascadia Code was the right choice for the font name, we held a poll on Twitter along with other names we were considering. We were very grateful for everyone’s participation and were so excited Cascadia Code came out as the winner. 😊

    What’s Next for Cascadia Code?

    As of today, Cascadia Code version 1909.16 is available publicly on GitHub. It’ll be following the Windows versioning syntax as the font receives updates with new and refined glyphs.

    For any updates coming to Cascadia Code, feel free to keep an eye on the repo or follow Kayla (@cinnamon_msft) and Rich (@richturn_ms) on Twitter. We are so excited to be releasing our font into the wild and we can’t wait for you to use it!

    Nice font indeed but don't bother if you are using other letters than the English alphabet. In my case, Swedish åäö.
    I look forward to an UTF-8 implementation.

    Yep, real shame about missing UTF-8, or even full ASCII implementation.

    As a more general question: Is such release of hastily finished product synonymous with the Agile approach?

    Cascadia Code 1910.04

    Cascadia Code has received a major update with some new characters! You can download the latest version of the font from the GitHub releases page and it is also shipped in the latest update of the Windows Terminal.

    👉 Note: The Terminal will use its shipped version over the separately installed version from GitHub, however it will use font fallback when needed. This means you will still receive the new characters and glyphs in the Terminal, but any changes to the original character set will not be reflected until your Terminal receives the update.

    Latin Characters

    Cascadia Code now includes Latin-1 characters! The full ISO-8859-1 glyph set along with other character tweaks have been added by Aaron Bell (@aaronbell), the font designer.

    Box Drawing Glyphs

    Box drawing glyphs are now included in Cascadia Code! A huge thank you goes out to Aaron Bell and Martin Anderson (@mdtauk) for contributing these glyphs to the font. 😊


    We have just published our roadmap for Cascadia Code on GitHub. Some highlights include converting the GitHub pipeline to allow more people to contribute as well as the addition of a weight axis and Greek, Cyrillic, Vietnamese, Hebrew, and Arabic characters.


    If you ever have any comments or questions, feel free to reach out to Kayla (@cinnamon_msft), Rich (@richturn_ms), or Aaron (@aaronbell) on Twitter or file an issue on GitHub. We hope you like these latest additions! 😊
