 +now it really happened... Phhhh. After 2 years in production, I finally have it out in the open. Last year at ESUG, I showed a bit briefly and was hoping to publish it in a few weeks... 52 weeks is also few, right?
 +
 +It helped to have a talk about it scheduled at ESUG on Wednesday :-) [see ESUG](http://​www.esug.org/​wiki/​). After the talk I will put the slides here (the best documentation I have, besides the code).
 +
 +The past year, I mainly worked on Fonts which are crutial to PDF - that took a bit longer than hoped. I implemented Type-1 fonts and some windows APIs, but now I connected it to PDF - last minute... Not much tested, but seems to work.
 +
 +This week was really the last time to clean up, disentagle references, fix bugs and add some demo code.
 +
 +I rewrote the user interfaces (PDFExplorer and FontExplorer) abandoning Widgetry for this project (too many unrelated dependencies) - unfortunately. There was a price: 2 features of the original tools were dropped because they couldn'​t get implemented in the base system.
 +
 +I think that there are a lot of docs to write - I guess Origo can be a good place for it.
 +
 +Now I am really curious about the reaction of the community. Will people look at it? Can they use it? Will it be ported to other Smalltalks? What bugs creap up?
 +
 +Happy hacking, ​
