Font Awesome will be maintained under the Semantic Versioning guidelines as much as possible. Releases will be numbered with the following format:


For more information on SemVer, please visit

The major version 5 is part of an umbrella release. It includes many different types of files and technologies. Therefore we deviate from normal SemVer in the following ways:

  • Any release may update the design, look-and-feel, or branding of an existing icon
  • We will never intentionally release a patch version update that breaks backward compatibility
  • A minor release may include backward-incompatible changes but we will write clear upgrading instructions in
  • A minor or patch release will never remove icons
  • Bug fixes will be addressed as patch releases unless they include backward incompability then they will be minor releases


Font Awesome Free is free, open source, and GPL friendly. You can use it for commercial projects, open source projects, or really almost whatever you want.

  • Icons CC BY 4.0 License
    • In the Font Awesome Free download, the CC BY 4.0 license applies to all icons packaged as .svg and .js files types.
  • Fonts SIL OFL 1.1 License
    • In the Font Awesome Free download, the SIL OLF license applies to all icons packaged as web and desktop font files.
  • Code MIT License
    • In the Font Awesome Free download, the MIT license applies to all non-font and non-icon files.

Attribution is required by MIT, SIL OLF, and CC BY licenses. Downloaded Font Awesome Free files already contain embedded comments with sufficient attribution, so you shouldn't need to do anything additional when using these files normally.

We've kept attribution comments terse, so we ask that you do not actively work to remove them from files, especially code. They're a great way for folks to learn about Font Awesome.
