Tsukurimashou 0.9

Sun 17 Aug 2014 by mskala Tags used: , , ,

I have just posted Tsukurimashou 0.9, the latest version of my Japanese-language font project. After almost a year in development since the last version, this one contains 1754 kanji, including all through Grade Four and 100 from Grade Five (a little more than half of the 185 assigned to that grade). This version also includes extensive infrastructure changes, most notably a bundled interpreter for the FontForge native scripting language, intended to provide insurance of future support as mainline FontForge moves further and further away from that language.

The future of Tsukurimashou development may be tangled, as my commitments and priorities change with my upcoming move to Denmark. This 0.9 release was produced in a bit of a rush to get something out the door before I pack up my computer for shipment. I don't know when I will next get a change to work on it more, but that will be at least two months from now. You can do your bit to support continued work on Tsukurimashou by building it, using it, and above all by writing about it. What the project needs most of all is attention.

I am Japanese.
I like the Japanese font that the person who is not a Japanese made.
The font is because normal Japanese font has few taste.
Japanese has many characters.
It is serious, but, please do your best for collecting all the characters in the SJIS.
And, please try the Japanese study hard. I support you.
