That release on October 9 was based on Bravura 1.02, which was the most current version of the font at the time we began working on this project. Since then, Bravura has been updated several times and now stands at version 1.08. So we have updated Norfolk to incorporate some of those changes, as well as fixing a few errors of our own making. The most current version of Norfolk stands at 2014-11-30.
If you downloaded the fonts on October 17 or later, you would have provided your e-mail address through our secure store and thus have already received notice of the update. If you downloaded the fonts earlier than that, or received the fonts from someone else, please take a moment to download the update here. Notices about future updates to the fonts will likely not be posted to this blog unless there is a serious problem or major improvements, but registered users will receive a notice of any updates via e-mail.
Interested in what’s changed? Read on:

- In Norfolk Std, reduced the size of the augmentation dot to 2/5 space in diameter, and likewise reduced the size of the staccato articulation to 1/3 space; also improved positioning of the staccato articulation
- The House Styles have been adjusted to compensate for the smaller augmentation dot
- In Norfolk Std, improved versions of G, F, and C clefs
- In Norfolk Special II Std, improved versions of G, F, and C clefs, and all their variants, including the forms with ligated numbers
- In Norfolk Special II Std, improved versions of the octave markers (8, 8va, 8vb, et al)
Bravura 1.08 now uses a longer (3¼ space) flag as its default option, but we opted not to include it in Norfolk, since the longer flags would look too large on shorter-stemmed notes in Sibelius, and it is not possible to dynamically adjust the flag size. So Norfolk still uses the 2¾ space flag.
