  • [sfnt] Make SFNTReader pickleable even when TTFont is loaded with lazy=True option and thus keeps a reference to an external file (#1962, #1967).
  • [feaLib.ast] Restore backward compatibility (broken in 4.10 with #1905) for ChainContextPosStatement and ChainContextSubstStatement classes.
    Make them accept either list of lookups or list of lists of lookups (#1961).

  • [varLib] Allow feature variations to be active across the entire space (#1957).
  • [ufoLib] Added support for formatVersionMinor in UFO's fontinfo.plist and for formatMinor attribute in GLIF file as discussed in unified-font-object/ufo-spec#78.
    No changes in reading or writing UFOs until an upcoming (non-0) minor update of the UFO specification is published (#1786).

  • [subset] Fixed AttributeError while subsetting ContextSubst and ContextPos Format 3 subtable (#1879, #1944).

  • [feaLib] Support multiple lookups per glyph position (#1905).
  • [psCharStrings] Use inheritance to avoid repeated code in initializer (#1932).
  • [Doc] Improved documentation for the following modules: afmLib (#1933), agl (#1934), cffLib (#1935), cu2qu (#1937), encodings (#1940), feaLib (#1941), merge (#1949).
  • [Doc] Split off developer-centric info to new page, making front page of docs more user-focused.
    List all utilities and sub-modules with brief descriptions. Make README more concise and focused (#1914).
  • [otlLib] Add function to build STAT table from high-level description (#1926).
  • [ttLib._n_a_m_e] Add findMultilingualName() method (#1921).
  • [unicodedata] Update RTL_SCRIPTS for Unicode 13.0 (#1925).

  • [subset] Fixed subsetting of FeatureVariations table. The subsetter no longer drops FeatureVariationRecords that have empty substitutions as that will keep the search going and thus change the logic. It will only drop empty records that occur at the end of the FeatureVariationRecords array (#1881).
  • [subset] Remove FeatureVariations table and downgrade GSUB/GPOS to version 0x10000 when FeatureVariations contain no FeatureVariationRecords after subsetting (#1903).
  • [agl] Add support for legacy Adobe Glyph List of glyph names in fontTools.agl (#1895).
  • [feaLib] Ignore superfluous script statements (#1883).
  • [feaLib] Hide traceback by default on fonttools feaLib command line. Use --traceback option to show (#1898).
  • [feaLib] Check lookup index in chaining sub/pos lookups and print better error message (#1896, #1897).
  • [feaLib] Fix building chained alt substitutions (#1902).
  • [Doc] Included all fontTools modules in the sphinx-generated documentation, and published it to ReadTheDocs for continuous documentation of the fontTools project (#1333).
    Check it out at Thanks to Chris Simpkins!
  • [transform] The Transform class is now subclass of typing.NamedTuple. No change in functionality (#1904).

  • [feaLib] Fixed AttributeError: 'NoneType' has no attribute 'getAlternateGlyphs' when aalt feature references a chain contextual substitution lookup (googlefonts/fontmake#648, #1878).

  • [feaLib] If Parser is initialized without a glyphNames parameter, it cannot distinguish between a glyph name containing an hyphen, or a range of glyph names; instead of raising an error, it now interprets them as literal glyph names, while also outputting a logging warning to alert user about the ambiguity (#1768, #1870).
  • [feaLib] When serializing AST to string, emit spaces around hyphens that denote ranges. Also, fixed an issue with CID ranges when round-tripping AST->string->AST (#1872).
  • [Snippets/otf2ttf] In script update LSB in hmtx to match xMin (#1873).
  • [colorLib] Added experimental support for building COLR v1 tables as per the colr-gradients-spec draft proposal.
    NOTE: both the API and the XML dump of COLR v1 are susceptible to change while the proposal is being discussed and formalized (#1822).
