Variable Fonts

Hi, I have asked if you are going to implement "Variable Font" managing earlier. Now it's coming fast on the web. I know it's a big step, but it's good to know if I shall wait for it... or looking for another tool to handle just variable fonts?

Look at this link:

We're working on it, but again please be patient. You might see some first steps at the end of this year.

We are also working on other improvements which will probably become available sooner.
