NimbusMod Redux - now available in bold!

I'm a recent eReader adopter, and have tried and enjoyed delphin's NimbusMod font family. However, it lacks proper bold and bold italics.

Back in 2013...

This is a different approach to the bold fonts generated by BCotton here which just expanded the outline of each glyph, meaning the bold versions were taller than the others.

I've decided to call this version NimbusMod Redux, to make it easier to differentiate on your reader and on this forum. In the files it's known as version 2.0

Thoughts appreciated! I can make further amends if required.
