URW fonts with additions of Cyrillic glyphs by Valek Filippov finally have most of the Serbian glyphs integrated (except in Chancery, which is still missing them).

Valek let me know about it while I was outside Belgrade (and without access to a computer), so everyone, hurry up to grab URW fonts 1.0.7pre33 in a tarball here:

urw-fonts-1.0.7pre33.tar.bz2

I've sent him some more comments regarding inconsistencies, but at least there won't be any problems with incorrect glyphs showing up (such as the memorable т instead of ћ). Now, if only distributions could start using these right away, I'd be very happy. gsfonts package also suffers from the same problems, so perhaps it will get fixed as well.

Yet, the high quality of glyph splines is noticeable: Valek has done indeed an outstanding work on improving and fixing my glyphs (or should I call them now "my crap"? ;).

I'm still not debunking my own CVS repository for Serbian modifications to URW-cyr, because I still prefer being able to create stand-alone Serbian fonts which have our Italic variants of п, д, б, т, г in their natural positions, not in Adobe's private use area. Of course, if you want a nice Serbian Caligraphic fonts, you should try Chancery with my additions in this CVS:

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.kvota.net:/cvs/i18n co fonts/urwsr

Valek, thank you. (Even though it took almost 3 years to get this integrated. :-P)
