6.1.0

Released March 15, 2022

Added

Changed

  • Replaced {{currentYear}} with the actual year in NPM package attribution
  • Removed an example that contained <script> that was messing with some build tools
  • Prevent aliases from overwriting main icon modules for deep imports in our NPM packages (faPaintbrush.js and faPaintBrush.js gave folks the most grief)
  • Mark the styles.css as having side effects to prevent CSS processors from tree-shaking out Font Awesome styles
  • Add number as a supported type for aliases and ligatures in TypeScript .d.ts file

Orange Mocha Frappuccino Beta 1 6.0.0-beta1

Released May 29, 2021

Added

  • New Emoji icons - Now we have Emoji-parity with all "smiley face" icons
  • A variety of new icons across many categories, plus a bunch of commissioned icons
  • v6 Support in Kits
    You can now choose the v6 Beta from the version select in your kits' settings
  • New and Improved Icon Search
    We crafted a new icon search from the ground up so you get quick access to copy options, a bigger icon preview without leaving the search, more options for filtering and sorting, better alias and synonym search options, improved icon detail pages, all-around snappier searching, and now we hold your place in search when you jump into details and back!
  • The beta Python/Django plugin now supports v6 icons and styling
  • The Javascript API, GraphQL API, and Conflict Detection API now all support v6
  • You can happily use jQuery, Turbolinks for Rails, and Require.js with v6

Changed

  • Changes to Duotones on the Desktop
    • Ligatures Changes: You can now get an entire duotone icon with the touch of a wand - ahem - ligature. (If you want the separate pieces, you'll need to use unicodes.)
    • Unicode Changes: In v5, our secondary duotone unicode was generated by adding 0x10 to the front of the primary unicode. In v6, we will use the unicode variation selector instead, so the icon will have a unicode value and then you can select the primary layer with 0xfe01 or secondary layer with 0xfe02 (the universal unicode variation selector values).
    • More Unicode Changes: We now have a single unicode for entire duotone icons (not just the primary and secondary parts). So 0xe2f5 will get you the full duotone icon for citrus-slice, but 0xe2f5 0xfe01 will get you just the primary layer and 0xe2f5 0xfe01 will get you just the secondary layer.
  • Breaking Changes to Some CSS, SCSS, and Less
    • Removed .fa-icon-rotate and .fa-icon-flip SCSS/Less mixins

    • Removed @fa-display, @fa-font-size, @fa-font-size-base, @fa-version variables in both SCSS and Less files
