freetype: I have a "beta"
version of the Vera fonts, and they are in TrueType format. I think it
is safe to assume the final version will also be in TrueType format.
The Vera fonts are based on the
fonts if you want to see more samples. The copies I have display quite
nicely with recent freetype versions (using the autohinter). The slides
for my presentation at linux.conf.au were
displayed with the Vera fonts. They didn't look as good as they might
have because MagicPoint still uses freetype1 :(
The fonts should be available to the general public in about a month (or
maybe a bit less). Jim has done a great job with this.
