ttf2pt1 is a converter of various scalable font formats (most notably TTF) and of the bitmapped BDF format into PostScript Type 1 fonts and metrics (.pfa, .pfb, .afm).

Release Notes: Fixes were made for a number of minor issues, including MS Windows build and better handling of the encoding tables. Improvements were made in the auto-vectorization algorithm.
Release Notes: This version includes a fix for a packaging error (the app/TeX subdirectory was missing in 3.4.2), and a couple of enhancements to the forceiso script.
Release Notes: This release has new scripts and a map for LaTex support. There are fixes for the empty contours, divergence of UniqueID, a missing "/" in the conversion script, and permissions of directories being installed.
Release Notes: Two experimental implementations of autotracing for bitmaps were added: one with the Autotrace library (it sucks horribly) and a homegrown implementation (it works much better). Bugs were fixed for a crash in the new outline smoothing code (on small thin contours) and diagnostics for another crash, a crash on degenerate contours, a crash on bitmaps of zero dimensions, a BDF reader failure on redefintion of the properties, a crash on BDF glyphs with 0 size, a hang when guessing the boldness of some fonts, and confused scaling coefficients in composite glyphs.
Release Notes: Fixes for breakage in the "adobestd" language and the scaling problems with Ascender and Descender in the AFM files.
