That should read Scribus enhancements based on freetype :-)

Also it would be nice if people tested the morefonts patch with their
fonts. The critical operations are:
- if Scribus recognizes the font
- if Scribus displays the font
- if scribus embeds the font in PDF (without subsetting)
- speed issues, especially with 'insert special char'

New features:
- recognizes *.dfont and resource forks on Mac
- recognizes TrueType collections and font suitcases

Does anyone have CID-Fonts or hqx/bin encoded fonts? Please contact
me (avox at arcor. de) so I can test support for those.

Also report any fonts which are reported broken by Scribus but work in 
other apps.
