Inconsolata-g font

Looking through The Setup website, I found a reference to the Inconsolata-g font in the interview with Gary Bernhardt. I’ve been using Inconsolata as my terminal font for a while now and thought it’d make a nice change. The g variant is bigger than the stock font, the increase in size is from the dz variant according to the change list on the website. There is a 2pt difference in size between the two version of fonts, Inconsolata-g at 12pt is equivalent to Inconsolata at 14pt. On my MacBook Air, font smoothing doesn’t look right with Inconsolata-g lower than 14pt using the OpenType version.
