Font Awesome Rails Jump to Story

Font Awesome 3.2.0, with 58 new icons was released this week, and Ryan McGeary had update the font-awesome-rails asset gem in near-record time!

If you find yourself looking for an easy way to use a bunch of common icons in your web app, from thumbs up, to buttons, to stars, to popular service logos, you should check out font-awesome and the corresponding gem; its much quicker to download one font file that it would be dozens of icons!
