Hi all,

It seems, that the package fontforge-0.0.20070312 (in unstable) will
be the last version which are ordinary for you. In the experimental
branch you can find the new fontforge package - 0.0.20070324.
This version has many UI changes and other important things are
changed. The upstream author George Williams writes:
"The major change is that fontforge now presents lookups to the user
rather than features. I think this makes simple things more difficult
(which is why I avoided this when I started), but it makes complex
things possible.


The sfd format has changed. New files are tagged as version 2. Old files
will still work, but ff will no longer produce file in the old format."

For more info see: 

It would be very good, if the bigger part of font maintainers could test
this new package, to notice the bugs, which may occur, before this
package will go to "unstable" branch. 

Best regards,
Kęstutis Biliūnas <kebil at kaunas.init.lt>
