On Tue, 12 Oct 2010 Staszek Wawrykiewicz submitted an update to the


font package.

 > Package: Antykwa Poltawskiego fonts
 > Version: 1.101
 > Date: Oct 9 2010
 > Authors: Bogus\l{}aw Jackowski and Janusz M. Nowacki
 > License: GUST Font License
 > Location on CTAN: fonts/poltawski
 > Maintenance status "maintained". The Current Maintainer
 > of this work is Bogus\l{}aw Jackowski and Janusz M. Nowacki.
 > The package contains the Antykwa P\'o{\l}tawskiego family of fonts in the
 > PostScript Type 1 and OpenType formats.
 > The original font was designed in the twenties of the XX century by
 > the Polish typographer Adam P\'o{\l}tawski (1881-1952).
 > Following the route set out by the Latin Modern and TeX Gyre projects
 > (http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry), the Antykwa Poltawskiego
 > digitisation project aims at providing a rich collection of
 > diacritical characters in the attempt to cover as many Latin-based
 > scripts as possible. To our knowledge, the repertoire of characters
 > covers all European languages as well as some other Latin-based
 > alphabets such as Vietnamese and Navajo; at the request of users,
 > recent extensions (following the enhancement of the Latin Modern
 > collection) provide glyphs sufficient for typesetting of romanized
 > transliterations of Arabic and Sanskrit scripts.
 > The Antykwa Poltawskiego family consists of 4 weights (light,
 > normal, medium, bold), each having upright and italic forms and one
 > of 5 design sizes: 6, 8, 10, 12 and 17pt (in the OTF lingo: extended,
 > semiextended, normal, semicondensed, and condensed, respectively).
 > Altogether, the collection comprises 40 font files,
 > containing the same repertoire of 1126 characters.
 > Recent changes:
 > Ver 1.101: 09.10.2010
 >   mistakenly missing `smcp' (small caps) feature and stylistic alternatives
 >   added in OTF files; altered implementation of the `numr', `dnom', `frac',
 >   and `dlig' features; other font files remained essentially intact (only
 >   version number changed).

Thanks for the upload.
