Location on CTAN: /fonts/softmaker-freefont/
Summary description: Support files for SoftMaker free fonts available at www.freefont.de
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
In June 2009 www.freefont.de offered a beautiful handwriting font
for free download: The Softmaker Stone Handwriting.
As handwriting fonts are a quite limited resource in the LaTeX world,
i decided to create support files for this beautiful font. Therefore,
Stone Handwriting will be the starting point for the softmaker-freefont 
bundle. Other fonts will be included in future.
Supported fonts at the moment: 
Congress (regular + bold + italic), Delano-Caps, Flagstaff, Henderson,
Iceberg (regular + bold), Old Blackletter, Stone Handwriting
License: LPPL (not the fonts themselves)
New in v1.6:
 - added support for the blackletter font Old Blackletter
   (This font offers additional ligatures for ch, ck, ft, tz!)
   Attention: The font is not included! This font is font of the
   month (December 2009) and can be downloaded for free (at least
   this month) at: http://www.freefont.de
   Later you can buy it from Softmaker
