Congrats to Heather and Raph.
Couldn't stop Xach from posting an announcement for GIMP FreeType on the Gimp News frontpage, so now everone knows about it. One interesting contributor already showed up who has code to create bezier paths from glyphs. I'm looking forward to see this in CVS. In the meantime I have hacked up a preliminary fontselector which will help me to settle on the design for the final one. After some discussion on #gimp the plans are pretty clear now and I hope to have some code ready soon.
