Fontographer 5 released
« on: 2010-06-18, 12:33:06 »
On June 17, 2010, Fontlab Ltd. released Fontographer 5 for Mac and Windows.

Some selected highlights of the upcoming Fontographer 5 version include:
— glyph antialiasing (smoothing) in all application windows and glyph window zoom level up to 1600%;
— radically redesigned and updated, easy-to-use Font Info dialog for editing the relevant technical parameters, with updated, intelligent automatic generation of OpenType-compatible font family naming and of cross-plattform linespacing values;
— reading and generating OpenType fonts (both PS/.otf and TT/.ttf flavor) with 20,000+ glyphs, with the ability to define the features using the most recent Adobe FDK for OpenType (AFDKO) version 2.5 syntax;
— reading and generating the FontLab VFB format for easy integration into a FontLab-based workflow;
— the Adobe PostScript autohinter and the excellent FontLab TrueType autohinter, integrated Adobe and Microsoft rasterizers for high-quality bitmap generation from the hinted outlines, and the ability to export the bitmaps into the BDF format.

Apologies for posting this here but having trouble doing it elsewhere - there appear to be "re-direct loops" happening all over the site?
Is there a problem with the server config?
