I mean mini iota appears in the capital, as it can be seen from your samples, not the small caps.

OK, however you still have those pesky adscript mini-iota as default glyphs, I don't understand the point of sticking to them, I think we'd reached the understanding that adscript iota must be of the same height as common iota.

And now the Caps to Small Caps implementation is in SVN.
See attached.

Hi,

I just committed an implementation of small caps for the Greek Extended range. Have a look, see attachment. (Caps to Small Caps should follow.)

By "lunate" I suppose you mean the curvy, or "palm-tree" upsilon.
(lunate means moon-shaped!) The question of when to activate this was just the thing I hadn't figured out, and still haven't thought about. (I've been busy.)

Cheers!

OK, I understand it now, but I've got two questions:

1. Small caps UPSILON needs language=Greek to be in the lunate version or stays lunate anyway?
2. Have you processed the extended Greek range or do you plan to do so anyway?

? I'm talking about small caps / caps to small caps in the font, the topic of this and two other bug reports. They should be basically fixed.

I attache a picture using Firefox of a table of the main Greek Unicode range with both "small caps" and "caps to small caps" turned on.

? I pretty much don't understand what you're talking about but OK, if you're tired, just go rest. We'll talk about that tomorrow ;)

So far, the changes are in serif normal only.
They affect the modern Greek letters, but as near as I can tell, small caps / caps to small caps is working for all of those.

The question is whether to do the small caps transformation first then the style, or vice-versa, or something else. I'm just too tired to think about it righ tnow.

I'm sorry, what's the extent of the change you've carried out?

I'm not quite sure what the logic should be.
Anyway, I just submitted a change related to small caps, that surely affects this.

This doesn't apply anymore if you choose to make Ypsilon with hook the default glyph see here: https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?39815#comment3

The shape of small caps YPSILON is different than the capital one. It should conform to the latter.
