23<b>New features:</b>
24<ul>
25<li> Improved the auto-vectoring (-OV) alrogithm.
26<li> Allow use of any encoding table of format 4 in the ttf parser.
27<li> Take the first available format 4 encoding table if no known
28  table is found in the ttf parser.
29<li> The ttf parser lists the available encodings if no supported
30  encoding table is found. This can be used to list the encodings in
31  any font by specifying a bogus explicit PID/EID, such as
32  with option <b>-l plane+pid=50,eid=50</b>.
33</ul>
34
35<b>Bug fixes:</b>
36<ul>
37<li> Fix to build all the features on Windows MS C++, by Tomoo Amano.
38<li> Fix for a null pointer in the encodings, bad inner loop variable.
39<li> Unified the parsing of font name strings and improved the checks
40  against invalid characters.

72  Umorin.
73<li> Scripts supporting font conversion for CJK-LaTeX, by Mike Fabian
74  from SuSE.

92
93<b>New features:</b>
94<ul>
95<li> Added Autotrace support for the bitmap fonts (-OZ). It's horrible.
96<li> Added vectorization of bitmap fonts (-OV) - functionally the same thing as
97  autotrace but home-grown. Works mostly decently but still with large
98  space for impprovement.
99<li> Relaxed the conditions for warnings about long glyphs.
100</ul>
101
102<b>Bug fixes:</b>
103<ul>
104<li> Fix by Rob Kolstad for a crash in the new outline smoothing
105  code (on small thin contours) and diagnostic for another crash.
106<li> Fix by Holger Huesing for a crash on degenerate contours.
107<li> Fix for bitmaps of zero dimensions.
108<li> The BDF reader does not fail on redefintion of the properties.

121<b>New features:</b>
122<ul>
123<li> Parser for the BDF bitmap fonts.
124<li> Vastly improved the smoothing of the outlines.
125<li> The options are saved as a comment in the output file.

129<li> More glyphs in the Chinese maps (by Rigel).
130<li> Made the assignment of ISO8859/1 glyph names to the glyphs in the
131  fonts without PostScript names in them dependent on the original
132  encoding: no change for the 8-bit encodings, for the Unicode encoding
133  the names are assigned to the glyph with the codes 0-255 in Unicode,
134  and for the other 16-bit encodings the 8859/1 names are not assigned
135  at all.
136</ul>
137
138<b>Bug fixes:</b>
139<ul>
140<li> Added a check for spaces in the PostScript font name in the FreeType
141  parser.

143<li> Fixed handling of the Unicode names returned by FreeType, though
144  not perfectly.
145<li> Changed the build for FreeType-2.0.4.
146<li> Fixed the handling and printing of bad glyph names.
147<li> Fixed the bug with duplicated glyph names when more than 256 glyphs are
148  extracted from a font that has no PostScript glyph names defined.
149<li> Added ability to map a glyph to more than one code when unisng the
150  native parser (-pttf).

179<b>New features:</b>
180<ul>
181<li> Cyrillic (full set of glyphs) language tables (by Zvezdan Petkovic).
182  Now the languages "russian" and "bulgarian" are provided for compatibility

185  Netscape (by Zvezdan Petkovic)
186<li> In the Netscape print filter added removal of the clipping path command:
187  otherwise Netscape tends to cut off a large piece of the rightmost column
188  of the tables.
189<li> One more script for printing from Netscape (by Zvezdan Petkovic).
190<li> Added selection of the base TTF encoding by pid/eid in the external maps.
191<li> Improved the recognition of substituted stems for intersecting contours.
192<li> Improved the substituted hints to make the horizontal positioning of
193  the points at the same height more uniform at small pixel sizes.
194<li> Made the algorithm for calculation of standard stem widths more
195  selective.
196<li> Added link to the GnuWin32 project.

202<li> Added missing "/" in Fontmap generation in convert (by Zvezdan Petkovic).
203<li> Removed unneccessary "\n" in messages in x2gs.
204<li> Removed the broken overoptimisation of "0 0 rmoveto".
205<li> Removed the useless warnings about multiple codes for a glyph.
206<li> Changed the FreeType2 include directory in the Makefile to match the
207  FreeType's default.

227<ul>
228<li> Changed the installation script which on some versions of bash
229  copied all files into the share directory.
230<li> Fixed the close sequences of html2man comments in the HTML files,
231  now they should display correctly with <tt>lynx</tt>.
232<li> Restored the ability to include un-encoded characters into the
233  customised maps (those with codes over 255).
234<li> Fixed the Unicode mapping of the Cyrillic letters "YO" and  "yo"
235  (by Yuri Shemanin).

259  <li> bounding boxes of all comparison files are used for page layout.
260</ul>
261<li> Added ability to use external t1asm instead of compiling it in.
262<li> Renamed the fonts installation guide from INSTALL*html to FONTS*html
263  to avoid confusion with installation of ttf2pt1 itself.
264</ul>
265
266<b>Bug fixes:</b>
267<ul>

272  <tt>other/showg</tt> to work without them.
273<li> In <tt>other/showg</tt> added better checks for missing glyphs, now it
274  gives warnings about them and the output file does not crash PostScript.

276
277<b>Other:</b>
278<ul>
279<li> <tt>ttf2pfa</tt> is no longer included, people interested in history

320
321<b>New features:</b>
322<ul>
323<li> Converted most of the outlines' processing to floating point
324arithmetic.
325<li> Added splitting of curves crossing the quadrant boundaries (no gross
326damage is done any more to the Marvosym font and others like it).
327<li> Added modular interface for front-end font parsers and option to control
328their selection at run time.
329<li> Grouped the outline processing control options into one to reduce the
330options namespace pollution.
331<li> Thomas moved the Chinese maps into a separate module, chinese-maps.
332<li> Thomas added option -V to print version number. In addition, the version
333number is put in the header of the font file.
334<li> Added long option names (suggested by Thomas).
335<li> Added support for multi-level composite glyphs.
336<li> TH: Made &lt;fontname&gt; command-line argument optional; default to &lt;ttf-file&gt;
337with suffix replaced.
338<li> In <tt>other/showg</tt> added more ways to specify glyphs and the comparison option.
339</ul>
340
341<b>Bug fixes:</b>
342<ul>
343<li> Fixed the VC++ batch file, added batch file for Cygnus GCC on Windows.
344<li> Removed parentheses from the Version string in AFM files because it does
345not help StarOffice anyway. StarOffice 5.2 has been reported to have this
346bug fixed. Added paragraph on StarOffice in FONTS.html.
347<li> Made messages on the '?' option parameter more meaningful (by Johan Vromans).
348<li> Changed the latin1 encoding table to include the Euro sign, Z and z with
349caron (by Thomas Henlich).
350<li> Improved the smoothing code which occasionally had problems with
351joining curves. Also fixed a few minor bugs in it.

363
364<b>New features:</b>
365<ul>
366<li> Included windows support by Frank Siegert (somewhat amended)
367<li> Added control over verbosity of warnings.
368<li> Added arguments and initialization functions to the language
369translation routines.
370<li> Added support of planes determined by arguments to the external
371maps.
372<li> Added compact external maps format (primarily for Eastern fonts).
373<li> Added external maps for Chinese GBK and Big5 encodings (converted
374from ttf2pfb) as well as maps for other Chinese encodings by Wang Lei.
375<li> Added the idea of buckets to speed up the search in external maps.
376<li> Changed the grouping algorithm for substituted hints: now it creates
377a bit bigger files but requires smaller hint stack when being rendered.
378<li> Added maximal limit of hint stack depth, glyphs requiring bigger
379stack get generation of substituted hints disabled. This makes substituted
380hints safe to use, no more lost glyphs due to hint stack overflow.
381<li> Added the font dump program <tt>other/dumpf</tt>.
382<li> Changed the testing HTML generator <tt>other/lst.pl</tt> to use tables.
383<li> Added debugging script <tt>other/cntstems.pl</tt> to count required hint
384stack depth for the glyphs.
385</ul>
386
387<b>Bug fixes:</b>
388<ul>
389<li> Fixed printing of UID in script/trans. Changed the auto-generated UID to
390be in range 4000000-4999999 which is reserved by Adobe for private use.
391<li> Fixed handling of "cleartomark" in built-in t1asm.
392<li> Added handling of "can't happen" case in straighten() routine
393which actually happened on strange fonts and caused failure on assertion.
394<li> Made it always include the glyph .notdef in the resulting font.
395<li> Placed the version string in AFM file in parentheses, hopefully
396that would fix the problem with StarOffice.
397<li> Improved the smoothing code which occasionally had problems with
398joining curves.

408Sergey Babkin: committed the changes by Petr Titera and
409my bugfixes.

411
412<b>New features:</b>
413<ul>
414<li> New Unicode map format with glyph names, by Petr Titera.
415<li> Option to force the Unicode encoding by Petr Titera
416 (I changed it to work on any MS encoding, not only Symbol).
417<li> Slightly tweaked the calculation of hints, should be better now.
418</ul>
419
420<b>Bug fixes:</b>
421<ul>
422<li> The unicode-sample.map with description of the map formats
423 was lost in the release process, restored and enhanced.
424<li> Renamed the table ISOLatin1Encoding to Fmt3Encoding to reflect
425 the way it is used. Saved the original one for reference
426 purposes. In the new table renamed "quoteright" to "quotesingle"
427 as Thomas Henlich suggested (and he were right).
428<li> In the ISOLatinEncoding table renamed the glyph "grave"
429 at octal 0140 to "quoteleft", "quotesingle" at octal 047 to
430 "quoteright" to conform to the standard as suggested by
431 Martin Trautner).
432<li> Fixed bug in scripts/trans that corrupted the UniqueID record
433 in the translated fonts.
434<li> Fixed bug in interaction of substituted hints with BlueZones.
435 Now the fonts with hint substitution seem to be always at least
436 not worse than without it (well, when they fit in the X11
437 file size limit).

448Sergey Babkin: combined my changes with the changes by
449Thomas Henlich. The result deserves a not-so-minor version
450increase.
451<p>
452
453<b>New features:</b>
454<ul>
455<li> Support of the external Unicode re-encoding maps
456  (by Thomas).
457<li> Support for inclusion of all the glyphs from the
458  source file into the resulting file (inspired by
459  Thomas but I re-implemented it to remove the limitation
460  of his implementation: not more than 1024 glyphs).
461<li> The hints substitution. It's an experimental feature
462  yet and needs further work.
463<li> Support for UniqueID and its auto-generation.
464<li> Support for the name-based conversions from Unicode
465  in general and the adobestd "language" in particular.
466<li> Started the split of the source code into multiple
467  files. This needs more work to do it in a cleaner
468  way.
469<li> Better framework for the debugging printout
470  in the converter.
471<li> Utilities to install the fonts in Netscape
472  Navigator/Communicator 4.x.
473<li> Patches for bigger font files in the X11 rasterizer.
474<li> Linux RPM spec-file (by Johan Vromans).
475<li> Added the COPYRIGHT file (BSD-style, as we discussed
476  on the mailing list earlier) and the CHANGES file.
477<li> Creation of the <tt>.pfb</tt> files from the <tt>convert</tt>
478  script.
479<li> Changed the <tt>.notdef</tt>-s in the built-in
480  ISOLatin1Encoding table to some valid names (by Thomas).
481  Thomas also suggested replacing `<tt>quoteright</tt>' by
482  `<tt>quotesingle</tt>' but this seems to be against the
483  Adobe ISOLatin1 table.
484<li> New aliases <tt>windows-1251</tt> and <tt>cp-866</tt> for
485  the Russian encodings: those are expected by Netscape
486  navigator.
487<li> The font comparison program <tt>other/cmpf</tt>.
488<li> The "magnifying glass" program for glyph outlines:
489  <tt>other/showg</tt>.
490<li> Other updates of the tools in the `<tt>other</tt>' subdirectory.
491<li> Added a link to T1LIB in README.
492<li> A few new options in <tt>convert.cfg</tt>.
493</ul>
494
495<b>Bux fixes:</b>
496<ul>
497<li> A bug in the outline smoothing code that corrupted some
498  of the fonts (for example, Microsoft Verdana).
499<li> Added explicit `<tt>cleartomark</tt>' to the end of file,
500  this seems to be compatible with both old and new version
501  of <tt>t1asm</tt> (suggested by Thomas).
502<li> Added the <tt>FontEncoding</tt> statement to the AFM files
503  (techincally this was not a bug because this statement
504  is optional but some programs want it).
505<li> A coredump when the converter tried to print a warning
506  (rather ironically) about a weird glyph width.
507<li> Changed the underscores in the font names to dashes (this
508  has been proposed long time ago by Johan Vromans).
509<li> No more glyph names of font names staring with a digit.
510<li> The names of the fonts in font and AFM files are now the
511  same as in the generated Ghostscript <tt>Fontmap</tt> file.<br>
512  <b>Warning:</b> the names in <tt>Fontmap</tt> have been
513  changed.
514<li> The <tt>forceiso</tt> script does not corrupt the character
515  and kerning pairs counts any more, and is optional at all.
516<li> Fix for a loop going to 254 instead of 255 (by Thomas).
517<li> Added ':' in the font header (by Thomas).
518<li> A coredump when wrong language name is given (this was
519  also fixed by Thomas but I noticed it too late, after
520  I already fixed it by myself).
521<li> Fixed the links to the Adobe documents in README.

557
558<b>New features:</b>
559<ul>
560<li> Added support for the Bulgarian language (actually, for now just an alias
561of Russian).                                                                   
562<li> Added option -w that tries to make sure that the character widths are not
563too narrow.                                                                     
564<li> Added the concept of aliased encodings.
565<li> Now the conversion scripts create and install the .afm files too.
566<li> The conversion script removes the intermediate files after installation.
567<li> Added tunables to the conversion script.
568<li> Installation of the Ghostscript fonts can now be done automatically
569together with the X11 fonts.
570</ul>
571
572<b>Bux fixes:</b>
573<ul>
574<li> (FINALLY!!!) A correct fix for the infamous Red Hat 6.0 stdio "feature".
575<li> A number of little bugs discovered by a picky SGI compiler (well, maybe
576some day I'll try to run it through the UnixWare lint and see what happens).   
577<li> A diagnostic message about the empty encodings in the convert script was
578made less cryptic and a bug in the awk sub-script was fixed.                   
579<li> The .afm creation code now considers the option -t.

724<li> Improved (although still not perfect) handling of
725scaling in composite glyphs
726<li> Automatic correction of outlines to make them more
727smooth (to correct both rounding errors introduced
728during conversion and present in the original font)

735<ul>
736<li> Scaling of fonts to 1000x1000 M-square required by
737Type1 standard
738<li> Printing out the contours in reverse direction, because
739TTF directions are different from Type1 ones (that was
740the major reason why the fonts generated by
741version 2.2 were rendered so badly in small sizes)

803(S.B.: The story how we got the version numbers is rather funny. Initially
804there were no version umbers, the releases were marked by dates. The version
805from June 22 1998 untarred itself into a directory "<tt>ttf2pt1-22</tt>". When I
806made my changes to it I assumed that this was the version number meaning
807version 2.2. Since Mark asked me to send him a complete archive I supposed
808that I have to bump the version number. And I bumped it to 3.0 because the
809changes were rather extensive. Mark silently agreed and released the new
810version as 3.0. And that's the end of the story about how we got this
811Microsoft-like high version number.)
