It's not included in the news post. Probably some problem with the gateway.

How can you see your own code with that font?? ;)

Which one you suggest me to use?
Why do you think that one you use is better?

I use Lucida Typewriter with antialiasing on. I think any font other than the one you're using (along with antialasing) would look better. But maybe I'm just weird. :)

I like ProFont. It really only looks good at 9 point, but it's the best I've found for coding.

Find it at:

For one guy's arguments why it's such a great programming font, see the "What's great about ProFont?" section at http://www.tobias-jung.de/seekingprofont/seeking.html

Oh, it's not actually a true monospaced font because the bold character sizes are a little wider. This messes up IDEA's margin calculation, but I never use bold text in code so it doesn't bother me.

And just to provide an alternative opinion... I use Courier New, without
anti-aliasing, size 12.

Gordon
