linux default iconFontForge for Linux Publisher's description

FontForge allows you to edit outline and bitmap fonts.

FontForge is an outline font editor that lets you create your own postscript, truetype, opentype, cid-keyed, multi-master, cff, svg and bitmap (bdf) fonts, or edit existing ones.

Also lets you convert one format to another. FontForge has support for many macintosh font formats.

FontForge's user interface has been localized for: (English), Russian, Japanese, French, Italian, Spanish.

With the appropriate libraries, FontForge can import png, tiff, and gif images to act as character backgrounds for tracing purposes (FontForge can import bmp and xbm formats without external libraries).

With libxml2 FontForge can read SVG fonts. With the freetype library FontForge will do a better job making bitmap characters for you.

None is required for the proper compilation/execution of FontForge, if the libraries are not present they will not be used.

What's New in This Release:

В· Displaying magnified bitmap strikes in the font view often caused a crash.
В· Non-English translations of "%d pixel bitmap" in the View menu of the font view came out garbled. There were interpreted as latin1 rather than utf8

System Requirements:

В· gtk+
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
