The Utopia Nova fonts are a modified version of the Heuristica font family
(http://code.google.com/p/evristika), which was last released by Andrey V. Panov
in 2014 in accordance with the conditions of the Adobe/TUG license agreement.
The Heuristica fonts in turn contains glyphs from the Vntopia font family
(http://vntex.sf.net), which was released by Han The Thanh in 2006 also in
accordance with the conditions of the Adobe/TUG license agreement.
The Linguistics Pro font family is a modified version of the Utopia Nova font family
(http://andreas.nolda.org/software.html), which was released by Andreas Nolda
in 2015 under the SIL Open Font License (OFL) – http://scripts.sil.org/ofl.
The Utopia Nova OpenType and Web Open fonts (version 1.12) are a modified version of the Heuristica font family, which in turn is based on the Utopia Type 1 fonts, designed by Robert Slimbach for Adobe and licensed to the TeX Users Group (TUG) for free modification and redistribution. Those Unicode fonts are particularly useful for documents in linguistics, as they include IPA characters as well as many spacing or combining diacritics. In addition, they support various typographic features such as ligatures, proportional figures, etc.; a stylistic set provides longer slashes, matching the parenthesis in height.
The Linguistics Pro font family contains two models of cyrillic glyphs. The base range of the cyrillic glyphs (uni0410:uni044F) represents the modern Bulgarian letterform model. The traditional cyrillic letterform model is included as a local feature for Russian language and as a Stylistic Set 01. Compare to Utopia Nova the encoding in the Linguistics Pro font family is completely rearranged, there are changes in the form of some glyphs and new glyphs are added.
