Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : fonts-xorg
Version     : 6.8.2                      
Release     : 0.FC3.1                  
Summary     : X Window System fonts
Description :
This package contains various fonts which have been separated out of the
X.Org X11 source code into a separate package in order to be able to
supply the fonts as noarch packages, and update them independantly of
X.Org X11 package updates.

Update Information:

The fonts-xorg packages included in the initial release of Fedora
Core 3 contain a number of minor glitches which have been fixed
in this update release.

- The official X.Org X11 6.8.1 upstream release inadvertently left
  out the "lucidatypewriter" font.  This update restores the font

- Official X.Org no longer supports the archaic "Speedo" font
  type, as of the 6.8.0 release, however the *.spd files were
  still installed and included with standard Xorg X11 packaging
  by default.  These fonts are now removed from the fonts-xorg

- The ISO8859-14 font subpackages were lacking rpm installation
  scripts, which could cause font related upgrade/install problems
  in some cases.  These packages now include standard rpm font
  installation scripts.

* Mon May 16 2005 Mike A. Harris  6.8.2-0.FC3.1

- Rebuild 6.8.2-1 from FC-4 as 6.8.2-0.FC3.1 for FC3 update, to fix (#139108,

* Fri Apr  8 2005 Mike A. Harris  6.8.2-1

- Remove the Speedo font files, as Xorg no longer supports Speedo fonts in
  6.8.0 onward but includes the fonts accidentally. (#142744,154191)
- Changed base subpackage post script to remove the Speedo font path from xfs
  configuration to avoid warnings in /var/log/messages from xfs about bad
  font path elements.

* Fri Apr  8 2005 Mike A. Harris

- Added postun scripts for ISO8859-14 fonts, as they were previously missing,
  which could cause problems on uninstallation of those fonts.

* Wed Mar  2 2005 Mike A. Harris

- Bumped to, merged into RHEL4 for U1

* Mon Nov 29 2004 Mike A. Harris

- Updated main tarball to include lucidatypewriter fonts that were missing
  from X.Org X11 6.8.1, and renamed it to to avoid multiple tarballs
  with same version but different contents, since it was updated with the
  new fonts. (#139108, 139121, fdo#1560)
