Introducing Font Awesome 6 Beta: Orange Mocha Frappuccino!

by Jory Raphael

Know what could really help you sort through these important issues? Orange Mocha Frappuccino!

If more icons, more services, and more awesome are wrong, we don’t want to be right. Now you can help us be wrong-er. Or righter. Oh, never mind.

Anyhoo, the point is, Font Awesome 6 Beta is finally here!

(Our beta is like … the “Blue Steel” of releases.)

And thanks to your discerning taste, we know you’ll have a helpful opinion about the beta. Will you let us know what you think? 

If you’ve been following along, you know that we’ve delivered announcements about Font Awesome 6 early releases before, and maybe you already know what’s getting brewed. This is different. How so? 

The v6 Beta Is like a Take Home Sample of the Official Roast 

Think of alpha releases as a tour of the roastery. You got a delicious whiff of that new icon smell. (Ah, there’s nothing like it!) With beta, though—now you’ve got a chance to grind fresh beans. 

So come on behind the counter, pull a few shots, and let us know how it tastes. We’ll take down copious notes, fix bugs, and roast those Font Awesome 6 beans to perfection. Deal? 

(V6 is like, so hot right now.)

If you’re not a Pro user yet, we hate the thought of leaving you out of the fun. So now you can become a part of the Elite Beta Brew-masters Club by getting Font Awesome Pro

Font Awesome 6 Free
While we perfect the roast of the free version of Font Awesome 6, you can still take a tour of the v6 roastery to browse all our new icons, take a looksie at our latest documentation, and see what other goodies we have planned.

What’s New to the Brew? With Font Awesome 6, You’ll Get More…

Thousands of new + refreshed icons. New, commissioned icons. Top community requests. 
A new thin style of all of our icons. A new sharp family (coming soon) of all of our icons.
Icon updates, fixes, and additions. CSS Custom Properties in our support styling toolkit so you can size, rotate and stack icons with ease. We’ve also cleaned up our icon meta-data, so searching for icons is easier than ever. 
Upload your own icons. Bundle only the icons you use with Subsetter. Rails and WordPress plugins.

Font Awesome Pro: A Plan Packed With Instant Orange-y Awesome-ness! 

With Pro, you’ll get access to Font Awesome Beta 6 and future releases. Plus, you’ll have access to all the greatness of Font Awesome 5 Pro while v6 percolates. But wait, there’s more. You’ll also have access to our services, additional products, and Real Human™ Technical Support.

So, we know making chiseled, ridiculously good-looking icons isn’t exactly the same as creating a Center for Kids That Can’t Read Good. Still, we really think that Orange Mocha Frappuccino can help make a difference. 

Check out the v6 Beta!
