ttf-bpg-georgian-fonts in 0.2 version BGP_Rioni.ttf has no hints entry in ttf-bpg-georgian-fonts.hints BUT....

Bug #46469 reported by Vladimer Sichinava

Fix Released

Bug Description

The ttf-bpg-georgian-fonts in 0.2 version BGP_Rioni.ttf has no hints entry in /etc/defoma/hints/ttf-bpg-georgian-fonts.hints
before, I would like to notice that in this days I've contacted BGP Infotech font master, who would like to help Ubuntu/Gnome/Kde community with his new special BGP GNOME/KDE optimised font pack...
- He has fully redesigned BGP_Chveulebrivi.ttf (that for the moment in 0.2 version is the most crappy/ugly/non usable font)
- Aslo he improved the BGP_Rioni.ttf, specialy big sizes (13-14-15), so in this way menues with bold/big/fat text are not cropped.
-also there will be gnome-terminal/konsole optimised BGP_Courier.ttf's version.

So it would be better to wait us several days... before defoma hint fixing and future ttf-bpg-georgian-fonts v.0.3 realise.

Thank You

Note: the original reporter indicated the bug was in package 'ttf-bpg-georgian-fonts'; however, that package was not published in Baltix.

hi all

i am bpg, author of bpg-infotech fonts.

after few days - new, redisigned pack of bpg fonts specially customized and tested for gnome/kde would be issued. now we are doing final testing of fonts pack.

all fonts are targeting "smoothing/antialiasing" option and would be produced without (delta) hinting or embedded bitmaps.
