Wish update for latest Material and FA icons?

I'm working through my apps, replacing icon bitmaps with icon fonts wherever I can (an easy way to support various sizes of icons).

In B4A 8.50, I just noticed that some Material icons are missing - that is, they are available on material.io but not in the font packaged with B4A.

I know that FontAwesome also releases new versions periodically.

Will B4A keep updating these fonts to keep up? Or can I manually download an updated font from their respective websites and use it in B4A?

Thanks!

Check whether you can find the new icon in the downloadable font file.

Nope, it's not there, so there is a delta between the downloadable font and the online resources. D'oh!

In the meantime, I'll use the drag icon that the font offers. Drag handles are still a bit varied even in Google apps. :confused:
