A new update for Type 3.2 has been released - Windows 3.2.043 and Mac 3.2.029.
This includes two major new features:
- Glyph validation window (full, demo and light versions) - allows checking of glyphs for common errors and potential issues. Full and demo versions also have: an auto-repair option which will fix most issues, and the ability to run validation over multiple glyphs using an action script.
- Support for contextual OpenType features (full and demo versions). For example, it is now possible to implement features of the form:
SUB one s' t' by s_t
Here the glyphs s and t are replaced by the ligature glyph (s_t), but only when they are preceded by the glyph one.
A new .feax file called Fractions is included in the update which uses contextual substitution.
