Main news (see also the file NEWS in the distribution):

   The bold Ibycus font is now available in Postscript
   format.  It was converted from Metafont to Type1 by
   Harald Harders.

   The regular Ibycus Type1 font should work flawlessly
   with Acrobat Reader 5 now; special thanks to Peter
   Heslin and Ralf Stubner, who succeeded to find and fix
   a long-standing bug.

   Virtual fonts and related font metrics are no longer

   Fixed definition of the macro \greek, so as to work
   also with default font encodings other than OT1.

   New text-generating command \textgreek as a
   counterpart to the declaration \greek.

   Improved installation intructions which should suit
   recent TeX systems.

   Ibycus 4.5 is released under the GNU General Public

Thanks for the upload.
