Re: Some MTPro V8.0.0.1124 64Bit questions--Glyphs and "Library"

Re: How can a font collector identify supported OpenType features?

This has been implemented in MainType 8.0.

There is a column in views to show whether or not a font contains any OpenType features. The information panel can be used to compare OpenType features in different fonts.
