As for the old fonts, I just issued them so that people would
know what to look for when they download the new one.
I don't care about them because they're obsolete now.
Anyway what this font newly has is characters for
Ancient Greek, Glagolitic and Japanese.
This is the explanation of it:
The underscore and title No14 (_No14) is just a version number,
yet required as not to confuse it with the previous version when using a word processor, it doesn't have anything to do with the name of the font itself. The name Kinryu does have something to do with the name of the font, the name Kinryu is the font of the Japanese characters, which supercedes the name Laurier on the grounds that the Japanese characters are a font in and of their own right.
You can remove the old ones if you want to because they're
not good for anything anymore now that the new one has come out.
This version of Kinryu does not really have all of the characters
for Chinese, rather those characters will be converted into
circles with question marks. This font has been extended so as to include ancient Greek characters, Glagolitic and a few new Japanese kanji. Those characters which are converted into
question marks by this font are not available in this font; That is because those characters are meant for the study of Japanese only.
This font is Mistral, designed by M. Excoffon of France in 1953.
You could try using a font like Trade Gothic Bold Condensed #20.
This font is somewhat similar to Banshee.
This font is similar to Seebad.
This font is similar to ITC Clover.
Furthermore the reason why it must be called Kinryu and not Laurier is that the seventh version of Laurier is the last version
of the font without any Japanese Kanji:
Kinryu No8 is actually a fifteenth version of Laurier, the eighth of which has Japanese kanji.
The difference is that Kinryu_No8 has Kanji characters for Japanese: Whereas Laurier No7 does not.
It is called Kinryu No8 for the reason that seven other versions
of Kinryu were made by me for myself before finally releasing this one, which has over five hundred Japanese kanji.
This is Kinryu No8, a font with Japanese kanji.
The spacing on this font was not thought of well enough,
so use a manual space between the kanji instead.
