Bitstream releases 10 free fonts - chance for View?

Hi, just got myself to following article via OSNews - http://zdnet.com.com/2100-1104-982010.html Maybe now View could feature quality fonts? I wonder how much would it add to rebol executable code and if it is worth the effort? -pekr-

That would be most excellent! The license they have provided allows for this sort of thing and it would be silly for a cross-platform language to NOT take advantage of this.. yaya.. same fonts across all platforms.. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Petr Krenzelok" <[petr--krenzelok--trz--cz]> To: <[rebol-list--rebol--com]> Cc: <[feedback--rebol--com]>

A native-to-View set would be useful for when we want things to look exactly the same across platforms, but ten or so fonts would increase the size of View considerably I would think. Given the choice, I'd prefer the time and effort to be put into getting View to resize and/or scale its GUI nicely using the fonts that comes with the OS it's running on than to have a small number of fonts added to it. (Having both done would be nicer still of course, but we've been waiting a long time for a lot of things as it is...) -- Carl Read

HI, Resizing the GUI is already possible, and it works well where it is implimented (unless I am missunderstanding you ;-) VID 1.3 will include a very nice resizing system. I may start a little bit of an open source GUI project shortly here after I do a little more experimentation with speed and performance issues. I will be driving this GUI toolset for inclusion in RIDE. I will need to satisfy the largest market possible in the easiest/most efficient ways possible. So stay tuned if you would like to include some of your Styles and whatnot in an open source project for REBOL... Enjoy!!
