My ever-cool colleague Sergey had a great announcement a few days ago in the Microsoft VOLT users community:

Hello everybody,

Today we are releasing new version of Microsoft VOLT 1.3. There are lots of new features and improvements in this version, here are just a few:

    * New font explorer allows font designer to quickly search and navigate through the project.
    * Usability improvements, including lookup comments, new UI options and detailed error messages.
    * Huge performance improvements on complex font projects.
    * Uniscribe and sample files are updated to match ones shipped with Windows Vista SP1.

You can find MS VOLT 1.3 download link and complete release notes on version history page.


This is very cool for the people who use VOLT (the Visual OpenType Layout Tool), including those who are much more knowledgeable than the not quite professional folks like me. :-)

You can look here for more information from a font developer point of view....
