Updating Font Awesome icons?

(Michael Downey) #1

Is there any plan or schedule to update the upstream Font Awesome version? There is an icon in version 4.2 that I’d like to use for a badge. :slight_smile:

We update this fairly regularly, feel free to nag us prior to each release.

(Travis) #3

Can we bump to 4.4.0? Pretty please. :wink:

(Jeff Atwood) #4

A bit late since we plan to release in 2 days…

(Travis) #5

Welp. I figured I’d look to see if there were any posts about FA version bumps and saw this. I’ll just monkey it to &v=4.4.0 then.

Sorry everyone.

Its pretty low risk I just updated us to 4.4, will watch it today.


(James Kiesel) #7

Hooray! Just when I needed it!

(Michael Downey) #8

Any estimate about bumping this to 4.6.x?


Is it OK to nag for 4.7 now? :grin: No rush one way or another!

(Travis) #10

5.0.0? It’s a big update.

What is the meaning of the green check marks on the upgrade page?

It is a big update! we’re fairly close to our 1.9 release, so we’re looking to update it for 2.0.

And there’s a super cool surprise in that update, I dunno if we’ve mentioned it anywhere yet. If anyone here is into Easter eggs, you could go digging…

spoiler alert

I already said…I ain’t tellin

but you really want to know don't you?

You can’t say I didn’t warn ya

final warning

I’m still not telling… sorry :upside_down_face:

They ship with a discord icon natively, so once this hits I’ll be able to use it for the discord oauth plugin, too. That’s Christmas enough for me!

Ps I found your egg. Very cool!

This may be nice for those using the Patreon plugin.


(Vinoth Kannan) #16

@jetatomic Yes. I already aware of that new Patreon fa-icon. I will update it soon after we have support for 5.0 :+1:

(Sam) #17

Plans for this update soon-ish?

Itchin to get my hands on some of those new icons… :slight_smile:


is it going to be the FA5 Basic Set or FA5 Pro?

(Kris) #19

FA5 Pro requires a license per site, so we’ll have to ship with FA5 Basic. It’s possible we can add a setting for sites that purchase a license in the future… they’re still figuring out how things should work on their end too:

Can I use Font Awesome 5 Pro in open source projects?

We’re still figuring out how best to make the Pro version of Font Awesome 5 available for open source projects and popular plugins like yours. We think our CDN can help with that and we’re hoping to get a version out later this year. Until then, we prefer that you not redistribute Pro assets/services and think your best bet for integration is to use Font Awesome 5 Free.


An option to enter an authorization code for Pro would be fantastic!
Until then linking to FA CDN will do.
