The Ubuntu font family comes in a variety of weights; regular, bold, italic, bold italic, condensed, light, light italic, medium and medium italic as a very refined sans-serif freeware TTF webfont.
This distribution archive includes the nine different weight/style .ttf font files (bold, bold italic, condensed, light, light italic, medium, medium italic, regular and italic), the font license text file (UBUNTU FONT LICENCE.txt) and this distribution archive info note (Ubuntu.txt) file.
This is a free font with commercial use and derivatives allowed, licensed under the Ubuntu Font License, Version 1.0. See the included aforementioned 'UBUNTU FONT LICENCE.txt' text file in this distribution archive for license specifics and details.

The Ubuntu Font Family are a set of matching new libre/open fonts in development during 2010-2011. The development is being funded by Canonical Ltd on behalf the wider Free Software community and the Ubuntu project. The technical font design work and implementation is being undertaken by Dalton Maag.
Both the final font Truetype/OpenType files and the design files used to produce the font family are distributed under an open licence and you are expressly encouraged to experiment, modify, share and improve.
The new Ubuntu Font Family was started to enable the personality of Ubuntu to be seen and felt in every menu, button and dialog. The typeface is sans-serif, uses OpenType features and is manually hinted for clarity on desktop and mobile computing screens.
The scope of the Ubuntu Font Family includes all the languages used by the various Ubuntu users around the world in tune with Ubuntu's philosophy which states that every user should be able to use their software in the language of their choice. So the Ubuntu Font Family project will be extended to cover many more written languages.

Updated August 2014: All styles were updated to 0.83 to fix a problem where some characters were not displayed as expected in some OS X applications.

The Font-Journal is a freeware and shareware TTF font repository that specializes in collecting freeware fonts which are acceptable for commercial use (as web fonts or for logos and advertising, etc..). Many of my own (Doug Peters) font creations are also exclusive to the font archive repository. I encourage you to support the freeware/shareware font designer first, possibly using the links provided above, but if you find the Font-Journal useful, please link back or tell your friends on Facebook and Twitter about Font-Journal.
