Lincity-ng is dual licensed CC or GPL, and uses dejavu fonts, with a free
license. I guess fonts are included for having same look on any OS (linux,
mac OS, windoz ...)

Lincity is the original game, SVGA X11 2d view, very light (work on 486)
Lincity-NG is New Graphics (2005), it was just a rework or UI and uses SDL
or openGL with 3d isometric view. (need better graphic card, and more RAM)

Latest beta (WIP) has changed :
-new building is added, and new file format, and big clean-up in the code
=> compatibility is just kept for loading old games and convert them
to new format/features.

yes since 2003, and there have been some bug fixes in NG (i guess the bugs
came with the original engine)
Up to lincity-ng_1.1.2 it was possible to build oldgui lincity from the svn
This has been remove for 1.9x, but can be set back rather quickly if there
is interest on it.
