FontSmoother 1.10 out!

Alex Pruss released an update to his great FontSmoother 1.10 application for Palm OS 5 devices.

FontSmoother decreases the "jagginess" of bitmap fonts and allows you to use smooth fonts in most applications on your OS 5 PDA (except for Tapwave and Treo 600) with Fonts4OS5 3.21 (some applications, e.g., eReader and Mobipocket do not even require Fonts4OS5!). It includes several smooth fonts and you can generate more from TrueType and Type 1 sources on your desktop with the free PalmFontConv utility.

Whats' new in 1.10?

- Activated for free even after expiration of trial in many Bible-type applications (still needs paid Fonts4OS5). Smooth highlighting support (in some apps).
- Included some Bitstream Charter fonts. Fresh trial period to users who exhausted the trial period on previous version.
- Better trimming of text boxes.
- Bug fix to font switching code, to improve preview in Fonts4OS5.
- Fix wordwrapping for text with tabs.
- Workaround for Fonts4OS5 small Sony bold, Hi-Launcher, AppShelf and JackFlash problems.
- Fixed TH-55 incompatibility.

Pruss, are there plans to make FontSmoother work independently from Fonts4OS5?

FontSubst will support FontSmoother soon--apparently it's pretty close to working.

FontHackV 2.x and FontSmoother have some interaction problems to work out. It's in process.

So, yes, you will always need a font chooser--I don't want to have to duplicate all of the code of Fonts4OS5 / FontSubst / FontHackV. However, you will have a choice of font choosers.

FontSmoother merely extends the OS by allowing antialiased fonts. The fonts still need to be loaded.

The next release of FontHackV will also improve the speed.

Did I forget to mention that FontSmoother is a must?
