WOFF File Format 2.0 First Public Working Draft Published

The WebFonts Working Group has published a First Public Working Draft of WOFF File Format 2.0. Based on experience with WOFF 1.0, which is widely deployed, this specification provides improved compression and thus lower use of network bandwidth, while still allowing fast decompression even on mobile devices. This is achieved by combining a content-aware preprocessing step and improved entropy coding, compared to the Flate compression used in WOFF 1.0. Learn more about the Fonts Activity.
