Name of contribution: Gentium
Version number: 2010.07.07
Author's name: Thomas A. Schmitz, Mojca Miklavec
Location on CTAN: /fonts/gentium
Summary description: Gentium font and support files.
License type: gpl

Announcement text: 
This package includes TrueType fonts from SIL, files needed to use them 
in pdfTeX in multiple encodings (agr, t2a, ec/T1, texnansi, l7x, qx, t5) 
and support files for ConTeXt. Support for LaTeX is pending (we got two different 
solution using completely different approach and someone needs to decide which one 
is better).

This was a bugfix version:
- use proper fonts (some ttf files were half-broken)
- use lowercase extention
- add complete documentation from SIL
- fix dcroat/Idotaccent (Mojca still claims that it's a bug in pdfTeX)
- fix some typos in ConTeXt typescripts
- add source for generating TFM files

This package is located at

appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .
