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.

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.

Garava Version 4.00 added some Miscellaneous Symbols and Arrows, Miscellaneous Pictographs and Transport Symbols (with some colour glyphs), improved Latin Extended-D glyphs for AY and VY, added medium mathematical space (455 funits 2/9 ths em), added more Alternative Fractions, used anchor-based positioning, for accented Latin composites, added narrow combining accents for narrow glyphs, added Bitcoin currency symbol to complete the character set, composed more composites from composite data, added Roman Numerals to Historical Ligatures (hlig), removed mappings where not needed, but added them where needed for kerning in legacy Serif applications. Garava includes Coloured Stylistic Alternate glyphs and (experimental) swash glyphs. The WOFF versions are unhinted, but the *.otf versions are hinted. Some bugs were fixed and several glyph contours were improved.

You have managed to further improve the font while it already is so sophisticated. Well done!
