I like this new version very much.

The fact that the edges of the T are straight, in particular, is a  
bonus: beforehand, the shadow below the upper horizontal bar of the T  
looked a bit like eyes or glasses (like these photos of a dog wearing  
sunglasses with the vertical ascent playing the dog's nose), it was  

Also, the curved edges looked a bit odd, the intersections seemed  
strange, now it looks all right.

And the fact that the light seems to come laterally makes the shadow  
more natural.

Also, the thicker base makes the whole closer to metal type, before  
the aspect ratio was more like a book.
