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

License: LPPL (not the fonts themselves)

New in v1.9:
 - added support for the font family Sunset
   (regular + bold + faked slanted + faked small caps)
   Attention: The font is not included! This font is font of the
   month (March 2010) and can be downloaded for free (at least
   this month) at: http://www.freefont.de
   Later you can buy it from Softmaker  
 - added options scaled and leading to all existing style files
 - changing font families: fsh->5sh, fhs->5hs, ffs->5fs, fib->5ib
 - renamed freefont.map -> softmaker-freefont.map
 - renamed directory Baskerville-Nova -> BaskervilleNova
