Version 3.83 adds two new ligatures for Dutch (fij and ijacute), a reversed question mark (used for irony) localized forms for Romanian, and many more kerning pairs. Currency symbols for Turkish Lira and Georgian Lari were redesigned. Glyphs with cedilla and ogonek were improved, using changes made to CompositeData.xml made for FontCreator 10.1. Outlines were optimized using the new Glyph Transformation command.

Smaller web versions were added. They are hinted, since Garava is perhaps too light for the web without it.

Version 3.84 replaced the Bold Italic Capital U, which somehow got deleted :oops:

Fixed some other bugs, and improved kerning.

Added some more Character Variants:

Garava Version 3.91 replaced the Contextual Alternates (enabled by default) with a Stylistic Set (ss01), which is not enabled by default. Using the attached text file I added some more kerning pairs for lowercase, and improved kerning overall. The WOFF versions are unhinted, but the *.otf Web versions are hinted. Some bugs were fixed and several glyphs were improved in the Extra Bold styles.
