You can download the light weight of Sofia free from FontSpring. Sofia is an open round geometric sans serif, sort of like if Futura was crossed with DIN.
Amble is a nice looking and highly legible font family available to download free. The font is available in light condensed, light, regular, bold weights all with matching italics. Amble is like a slightly more open version of Verdana. My only issue with the font is the slightly strange upper case K.
Web Serveroff is a nice looking condensed light monoline geometric sans-serif free to download in a regular and italic.
In a rare occurrence for free type families, you can download the whole 18 fonts that make up the extensive Exo. The font comes in thin, extra light, light, regular, medium, demi-bold, bold and extra bold, all with matching true italics. All weights have small caps, alternates, ligatures and different number formats in the open type system. The combinations of the different weights lend this to being able to be used in a large range of products. The font itself is a geometric sans-serif similar to Klavika (the Facebook font).
Here are a few of the free sans serif fonts that came out towards the end of 2011.

Rosario is a humanist semi serif, that is similar to Gill Sans
Armata is a geometric sci-fi sans serif based largely on an asymmetric squared circle
Sansita One is a nice looking brush sans serif in the style of old sign writing and can be used as a bold italic
