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: 
Artistic, Baskerville-Nova (regular + bold + italic
+ bold italic), Canossa (regular + bold + light), Congress
(regular + bold + italic), Delano-Caps, Flagstaff, Helium
(regular + bold), Henderson, Iceberg (regular + bold), 
Jugendstil, Old Blackletter, Stone Handwriting,
Sunset (regular + bold)

License: LPPL (not the fonts themselves)

New in v1.12:

- added support for the font Softmaker Helium
  (regular + bold + faked slanted + faked small caps)
  Attention: The font is not included! This font is font
  of the month (June 2010) and can be downloaded for free
  (at least this month) at: http://www.freefont.de
  Later you can buy it from Softmaker  

- renamed font families (5xx -> 6xx)
  to avoid naming conflict with LaTeX support for
  Softmaker FontSite 500 CD
