Project Release Information
This release fixes a bug that caused fonts to be monospaced incorrectly. It also includes a sample typeface.
This release fixed a bug related to encoding of text embedded in font files the program builds.
This release introduces the cubic Bezier curve for contours
and conversion between a contour using cubic Bezier curve
and quadratic curve.
Major bugs related to the metric information in the font
output were fixed. Min, max, ascent, and descent are now
calculated correctly, and the hdmx (horizontal device
metrics) table is no longer misused. There was another
bugfix related to UI initialization, which was causing JVM to
hang occasionally on startup. New features, including
rounding support, interpolation emulation, preview of glyph
using the built font, and search text field, were added.
The focus of this release is improvement of the UI. Move and
pick actions were consolidated into one. The program
remembers the last location of the typeface file. A context
sensitive menu was added, which displays link to available
tasks depending on the selected object. Wallpaper can be
moved vertically as well as horizontally.
DoubleType is an attempt to make a type designer (font editor) that builds TrueType font files. It is designed with collaborative creation in mind. Unlike other programs that work on a single binary file,
