Odia Wikisource went live yesterday and is available at:
https://or.wikisource.org. It was in the main Wikisource for about 1.9

are digitizing Odia Bhagabata.
CIS-A2K congratulates the community and thank all the contributors,

A brief post on this:

You may be aware that we (my family) have released a font family earlier.
Here is some background if you are not aware of it.
On the first death Anniversary of Yogini Joglekar(my aunt), our family
released AksharYogini (Normal) Font on 1st Nov. 2006. This font is
primarily for Marathi language but can also be used for Hindi (for any
language using Devanagari). It also has English support. Later on, on the
occasion of Gudhipadwa (Chaitra Shuddha 1, 1931; that is 27th March 2009) ,
we released the additional fonts to complete the "AksharYogini font
family". This font family was/is made available on the site
http://aksharyogini.sudhanwa.com for free usage/distribution/sharing.
Today, on the occasion of Eighth Death Anniversary of Yogini Joglekar, we
are now releasing an updated "AksharYogini font". This font is also
available on the same website http://aksharyogini.sudhanwa.com
This is an updated font and has support for the new (MS Windows) operating
systems where the internal mechanism for font rendering is changed. Also,
it has additional characters for the current Unicode standard and the Rupee
Sign is also included.
Most important is the licensing. The new release is under the Open Font
License. As such, all Linux distributions will be able to freely use it in
Please feel free to use, share, distribute the new font. You can download
it from http://aksharyogini.sudhanwa.com .
Give us feedback on my email id or the official id for the font "
aksharyogini at sudhanwa.com " You can also comment on the guestbook on the
Do share this news and also the font.
Wishing you a Very Happy Diwali !!
