Subject: New fonts and font tools?

New fonts and font tools?

From: Denis Sokolov <>

I have just downloaded 2.3 and now my customized fonts are screwed.
Basically, the what's new says that the fonts are different, but there is no
reference anywhere how to make new ones
and what are the new version or what is the difference :(
By the way - this is a suggestion for improvement to whoever has time to
update website/docs.
The problem is: I use cyryllic fonts and all cyrillic fonts that come with
the rockbox are using the wrong encoding :)
Wrong for Windows anyways. And most of them are too large.
So I made my own version for all the Cyrillic Windows users.
I wanted to send it to share with everybody as I read: "Please send us
custom fonts". But I could not find email to send to anywhere :))
Anyways now I am stuck with my own font but it's an old version.
How do I make it a new version? What are the tools?
I can't remember the process much and don't know the specs of the new font.
Or better yet, can anybody convert an old BDF file for me if possible,
I don't want to install Cygwin and all the tools just to convert one font.
Then I can share this font to include in the package as a Windows Cyrillic
encoded nice font :)
