Announces Free Font Utilities
New York, July 18, 2001 - Stone Design, veteran Macintosh Cocoa software house, today announced two free utility programs to enhance PStill™, Stone's PostScript to PDF (Portable Document Format) converter.
GNU Font Installer installs free GNU versions of standard Type 1 fonts into PStill. Stone Design's CEO, Andrew Stone, notes, "The GNU Font Installer lets users take full advantage of PStill, even if they don't have any PostScript Type 1 fonts. In the GNU spirit, the application is 100% free!"
GNU Font Installer is available as a free download now from Stone Design's web site.
The second application, code named "True Blue," is a utility to convert True Type fonts to Type 1 fonts. This will give PStill users an even greater range of document conversion options, with more accurate font conversions. This application will be released in the fourth quarter of 2001, and will be available as a free download from Stone's web site.
In addition, PStill for the NEXTSTEP/OpenStep GUI is now free. Frank Siegert, original author of PStill, has included a free license key with the NEXTSTEP version of PStill, which can be downloaded from Frank's site or from the Stone website.
