Xavier Danaux & Dave Gandy submitted an update to the



Version number: 4.3.0
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Font containing web-related icons.

Announcement text:
Version 4.3.0:
- Updated the font and icons to the 4.3.0 version of the opentype font
- Added a type1 conversion and character mappings, so fontawesome now
also works under pdfLaTeX!

Please note this update will probably break code relying on the
previous release, as many icon names have changed (upstream). I decided
to reflect the upstream name changes as some name changes were
absolutely required to introduce new icon variants with consistent
naming. Sorry for the debugging this will cause to some. I also
automated to process, so expect speedier updates in the future :)
