Yelp announced on Thursday it is auditioning for class-action lawsuits.  Why it is doing this, no-one was entirely clear, but alcohol was probably involved.

3 Only 10,000 characters in Julia Mono? Noto Sans Mono CJK has over 65,000 (but would make a terrible coding font...). For comparison, typical kanji fonts have ~7,000-8,500, and Iosevka clocks in at ~6,500 at the moment.

Vertical alignment of Julia Mono isn't terribly consistent (slash and backslash aren't even the same), although it's mostly subtle; the width difference between tilde and hyphen is surprisingly large, though. I give it a C+; points off for some inconsistent character weights and defaulting to a dotted zero. :-)

4 10,000 is not bad for a non-CJKV font.  I can see what you mean on the inconsistent weights and alignment though.

I'm looking for a good OpenType font to use to create the bitmap fonts for my emulator, and I want one that's rich in symbols and has full support for European languages (including Greek and Cyrillic).

I just looked at Iosveka and that's quite good, but is missing some symbols I want.  Of course, I could use it for text and take the missing symbols from JuliaMono.
