[email@example.com: ANNOUNCE: Xfsft-1.1.7]
Does the following messages mean that Xfsft will become part of
XFree86-4.0.0? Did the XFree86 Team decide to go with Xfsft instead of
X-TT? If so, what would happen to X-TT?
(I'm sure both X-TT and Xfsft work well with CJK fonts nowadays.
I don't know. :-)
(If you already know about this, I apologize for the false alarm. :-)

Xfsft-1.1.7 is now available. This version fixes the handling of
Microsoft Symbol fonts, according to information provided by Richard
Griffith on this list.
Xfsft-1.1.7 has been submitted to XFree86 for inclusion in the current
3.9.* series. A patch against XFree86-3.9.16 is available in
THIS PATCH WILL NOT APPLY CLEANLY TO XFREE86-3.3.*. However, porting
it to the 3.3.* series should be about five minutes work for someone
who already has the 3.3.* sources patches with xfsft-1.1.6 (the new
patch is a mere 50 lines long).
I do not currently have access to a machine with the 3.3.* sources, so
I am unable to generate a proper patch for this version. I apologise
for any inconvenience caused.
There are currently no prebuilt binaries available.
P.S. Please do not announce this version on Freshmeat before I get a
proper patch against 3.3.*. I do not want to be flooded with bug
reports saying it doesn't apply cleanly.
