TeX for Unices (and Plan9) : kerTeX PostScript upgrade
I have published a new version of kerTeX: 0.9.6.3.
The main changes:
- The handling of the reencoded fonts names for PostScript has been
corrected; this impacts dvips(1) and MetaPost, and the dvips.cnf
- Dvips(1) allowed more form of comments in the font map files than
MetaPost, while the two programs were supposed to share some:
MetaPost now accepts all the comments accepted by dvips(1).
- The reserverd string "KERTEXSYS" can be added as the last
alternative of a search path specification. This adds the default
system search paths to the specification.
It can be noted that I found some blunders in the way the font names
were handled in the PostScript code generated by dvips(1), and despite
the advertised "with million of users! thousands of programmers!
hundreds of developers! a GPL code is reviewed by millions of pairs of
eyes!", these ones were still here after 15 years of "community"
and please do read the README!
