This is not new (in fact it’s almost exactly a year old) but independent foundry Fontfabric’s handsome Bebas Neue is an all-caps sans serif typeface that also happens to be free. It was originally based on an original, single-weight bold font by Ryoichi Tsunekawa, but a year ago the foundry released four additional weights: Thin, Light, Book, and Regular. While the character set is quite limited, the letterforms that are there are well drawn, and you can’t beat the price.
