DejaVu News II.
What was last month like for DejaVu fonts? Let's find out now.
Not shining, but still good
Road to 1.10/2.0
The exact name of next release is not known (it would not be good to call it 2.0 if there are no big changes), but it will be released on May 15th 2005.
Goals did not change much since the last time, kerning is still the number one.
DejaVu fonts are now part of Familiar (not a part of core image, but downloadable package). This could mean that DejaVu for Opie/Qtopia will be discontinued. Decision is up to our QPF guy, Vašek Stodůlka, and will be announced in short time.
Word spreads around the globe
"I find I prefer the Sans, Sans Mono, and Serif faces to Lucida Grande, Monaco Regular, and Georgia respectively (the macrons are more cleanly separated from the letters in both the Sans Mono and Serif faces)."

Fresh blood, part deux
Did somebody say world dominance?
