Glyphtracer 0.1.3 released

Jussi Pakkanen released a new version of Glyphtracer — a small handy UI that simplifies vectorization of fonts.

What it does is loading a bitmap with scanned glyphs of a typeface, letting you say which glyph has which Unicode value, then vectorizing it with potrace and saving a FontForge file for further work.

Glyphtracer 0.1.3

The new version features bugfixes and a newly added zoom control (bottom, right). The application still takes only 1bit bitmaps for input (you can easily create an indexed image in GIMP). Glyphtracer is known to work on Linux only.

You can download source code.
