(2013-03-09 - update v5 includes a fixed width font from /u/katra_ix, the prototype font, and some large Minecraft blocks that you can 'type' into the world as letters a-s)
(2013-03-07 - update v4 includes a proportional font, and support if you want to add your own. Create a directory under your filters/font directory to add your own font)
