Hmm, I have 2.3.4 and it works fine for me. I'll make a package for it a little later and put here.
How about prepared for NGUI 2.3.6?

This package's addition is one of two important modifications that will be hitting the Pro version of NGUI in a short while. I am very hesitant about both, so I will most likely keep them Pro-only for a few weeks until I make sure that there are no adverse side-effects (the other feature is the potential fix for the Z vs depth distinction, in case you're curious).
That sounds like a really good features and fixes. This are in the 2.3.6 Pro version?

Sorry, I haven't had time to take a look at it yet. I hope to do it this week or at least this weekend.

Heart of the Swarm sorta took all my time. ;D

There's a way to add glow on a Dynamic Font?
Because in a texture font, you just add it to the texture, but here?

You would have to do it in the shader then.

you can use UILabel option Effect -> "outline" to add glow to your dynamic font

That's less of a glow and more of an.. outline. :)

If you want a proper glow in a photoshop sense, then it should have an alpha dropoff and that can't be done with the existing UILabel effects. You can add that in your own shader if you want it though.

That should be the material I'm using for the Dynamic Font? or the the texture or material inside TTF?

The material you use for the dynamic font. It has a shader attached - you would have to mess with your own in there.

Any estimation about when dynamic font will be in, Aren? We think about changing all uilabels to textmeshes for dynamic fonts, but hope that we could avoid it.
