This is a maintenance release on the previous release of GNU FreeFont.

Look for files dated

There are three main changes.

1) The Glagolitic range has been removed, due to an unfortunate mistake (mea culpa!) regarding licensing of the font on which the range is based. 
Efforts to contact the original author were made but no reply was actually received.  We are trying again, but until proper permission is given, these glyphs will remain excluded.

2) The old bug regarding excessive line spacing in Mono was inadvertently re-introduced in the last release.  It has been fixed again, and the test scripts now contain tests for the problem.

3) Daniel Johnson has provided a bold version of his Cherokee range.  Oblique faces have also been filled in.

Also, the license has been upgraded to GPL v3
