Themes Team Releases a Web Fonts Loader, Likely To Prohibit Hotlinking Any Off-Site Assets

Last Friday, the WordPress Themes Team announced the release of its new Webfonts Loader project. It is a drop-in script that allows theme authors to load web fonts from the user’s site instead of a third-party CDN. The secondary message included in the team’s announcement is that it no longer plans to allow themes to hotlink Google Fonts in the future.

Throughout most of the team’s history, it has not allowed themes to hotlink or use CDNs for hosting theme assets, such as CSS, JavaScript, and fonts. The one exception to this rule was the use of Google Fonts.
