Description H.J. Lu 2013-12-03 13:26:51 UTC
fontforge seems to have moved to https://github.com/fontforge/fontforge
Comment 1 Kevin Fenzi 2013-12-03 16:49:49 UTC
Yes, I'm aware it's moved. ;) There's not been any new stable releases however... What specific changes were you looking for? why is the current version 'too old'? Did you want us to ship a git snapshot?
Comment 2 H.J. Lu 2013-12-03 23:47:49 UTC
I am trying to build pdf2htmlEX: https://github.com/coolwanglu/pdf2htmlEX It needs fontforg 2.0.
Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2013-12-04 03:01:25 UTC
Odd. The cmakelists there I see it looking for the older fontforge.h header, etc... Are you sure it won't build with current packaged fontforge-devel?
Comment 4 H.J. Lu 2013-12-04 16:04:46 UTC
You are right. It seems to search the older fontforge if the newer one isn't found.
Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2013-12-04 23:21:30 UTC
ok, then do you still need the update? Or it should be ok for now? I can ask upstream if they intend to do another release soon...
Comment 6 H.J. Lu 2013-12-04 23:36:14 UTC
It will be nice to update. Other distos have updated to fontforge 2 and packages using fontforge should work better with fontforge 2.
Comment 7 Kevin Fenzi 2013-12-04 23:47:27 UTC
I've asked upstream about new releases... I don't see a newer one on debian or arch. Perhaps they are in side repos? Can you point to one, I'd love to see what snapshot they are packaging...

Comment 9 Kevin Fenzi 2013-12-08 17:23:18 UTC
There's some discussion on the upstream list about either doing a release or at least stablizing git around the first of the year.
Comment 10 Rick Elrod 2014-09-01 07:40:39 UTC
Small world. :) I was just attempting to package https://github.com/coolwanglu/pdf2htmlEX and ran into this too. They dropped support for old fontforge earlier this year: https://github.com/coolwanglu/pdf2htmlEX/commit/15ac5271a72ad2fff36f4b91697e0335a00bd9b1
Comment 11 Parag Nemade 2014-09-05 08:11:22 UTC
I have prepared fontforge 2.0 pre-release package. The copr build is available at https://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/pnemade/fontforge/build/30855/. People are welcome to test it. Also, I would like to update this package in rawhide. Can I get the permission to update it? https://paragn.fedorapeople.org/fontforge2/fontforge.spec
Comment 12 Kevin Fenzi 2014-09-05 16:11:04 UTC
I think it's sad that upstream doesn't do releases anymore, but sure please do update at least rawhide with a snapshot. :)
Comment 13 Parag Nemade 2014-09-05 16:20:59 UTC
Thanks. I will update new fontforge in rawhide only and close this bug.
Comment 14 Parag Nemade 2014-09-08 10:07:38 UTC
Ah! Koji do not allow remote source download whereas copr allows it. I forgot this and a successful copr build failed on koji.
Comment 15 Parag Nemade 2014-09-08 14:00:48 UTC
Built in rawhide fontforge-20140813-2.fc22
