For those who've missed: JetBrains released a new font. It's called "JetBrains Mono" and it's open-source as well. It supports ligatures, 143 languages (wide range of Unicode characters) and it looks good (imo).
It's going to be the default font in IDEA 2020.1 (and its "forks": AppCode, PyCharm, etc).

JetBrains Mono: a typeface made for developers
JetBrains Mono is available as a standalone download, and is also bundled in all JetBrains IDEs. Discover more font features & design on its web page.
Default version of JetBrains Mono comes with OpenType features and ligatures (which can always be toggled on & off in the settings). If your IDE doesn’t support OpenType, use a special version of the font — JetBrains Mono NL, which doesn’t include any ligatures.
The most recent version of JetBrains Mono ships with your JetBrains IDE starting with v2019.3.
Select JetBrains Mono in the IDE settings: go to
Font, and then select JetBrains Mono from the Font dropdown.
Brew (macOS only)
Tap the font cask to make the Jetbrains Mono font available :
brew tap homebrew/cask-fonts
Install it using the
brew install --cask font-jetbrains-mono
