CTAN Up­date: mf2pt1

Date: Au­gust 2, 2011 8:15:54 PM CEST
On Tue, 2 Aug 2011 Scott Pakin sub­mit­ted an up­date to the mf2pt1 pack­age. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Pro­duce PostScript Type 1 fonts from Meta­font source Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
mf2pt1 fa­cil­i­tates pro­duc­ing PostScript Type 1 fonts from a Meta­font source file. mf2pt1's ad­van­tage over tools such as TeX­trace and mf­trace is that it does not rely on bitmap trac­ing and there­fore can pro­duce higher-qual­ity Type 1 fonts than trace-based tools. The catch is that mf2pt1 im­poses some re­stric­tions on the Meta­font in­put so it is not, as the name may im­ply, an au­to­matic con­verter of ar­bi­trary Meta­font fonts to Type 1 for­mat. Ver­sion 2.4.5 in­cor­po­rates a bug fix from Werner Lem­berg that pre­vents non-in­te­ger ar­gu­ments from be­ing passed to hsbw in the def­i­ni­tion of ".not­def". If you have been re­ceiv­ing "un­known charstring com­mand" mes­sages from t1asm and/or "Stack un­der­flow on hsbw in .not­def" mes­sages from Fon­tForge, you should up­grade to this ver­sion of mf2pt1.

More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/mf2pt1 (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

mf2pt1 – Pro­duce PostScript Type 1 fonts from source

mf2pt1 fa­cil­i­tates pro­duc­ing PostScript Type 1 fonts from a source file. It is not, as the name may im­ply, an au­to­matic con­verter of ar­bi­trary fonts to Type 1 for­mat. mf2pt1 im­poses a num­ber of re­stric­tions on the in­put. If these re­stric­tions are met, mf2pt1 will pro­duce valid Type 1 out­put with more ac­cu­rate con­trol points than can be re­verse-en­gi­neered by trace, mf­trace, and other pro­grams which con­vert bitmaps to out­line fonts.
