fontforge seems to have moved to
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?
I am trying to build pdf2htmlEX:
It needs fontforg 2.0.
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?
You are right. It seems to search the older fontforge if
the newer one isn't found.
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...
It will be nice to update. Other distos have updated to
fontforge 2 and packages using fontforge should work better
with fontforge 2.
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...
There's some discussion on the upstream list about either doing a release or at least stablizing git around the first of the year.
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
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?
I think it's sad that upstream doesn't do releases anymore, but sure please do update at least rawhide with a snapshot. :)
Thanks. I will update new fontforge in rawhide only and close this bug.
Ah! Koji do not allow remote source download whereas copr allows it. I forgot this and a successful copr build failed on koji.
