If you want to report bugs please decide if you want to:
- use the bug tracking system on sourceforge (see -> bugtracker)
- send a mail to philthelion (at)

-Hinting is still not perfect (you will find hinting faults that deform glyphs in an ugly way but this effetcs just the screen - not printing)
Please note that Hinting isn't always the best way for rendering on screen (especially on Linux-systems). You may want to try the OTF-files instead of TTF to achieve a better displaytion. Please do not forget, that Hinting changes the letterforms to fit the screen pixels. Therefore the letters do look differently on screen! If you want to see how it might look printed, choose at least 600% zoom.

-A few accented charakters or non-latin-charakters are probably not the style native users would prefer (even Unicode-Standards sometimes aren't). Get into contact with me, if you have something to correct. In this way I got, for example, many corrections for the Russion charakters lately, what resulted in an enormous improvement of the cyrillic alphabet in LinuxLibertine (thanks alot for your help, once again!).

- added small cyrillic m (uni043C) to Biolinum and some other missing cyrillics
(not yet all done...)
- Inverted Interrobang (uni2E18) added
- Add Substitution/Transposition brackets 2E02-0A
- macroncmb (uni0304) had a wrong positioned mark anchor and was thus flying
much to high
- Problems with Fractions (ID 2665656): without a contextual chaining
substitution fractions like 1/7 or 1/10, that don't have a concrete
Unicode-posistion, were unavailible. Now solved via contextual chaining
- bold: ck, ch-ligature's part characters were a bit close. Now some more space
between them
- diacritic U+031A was wrongly placed. Is now being positioned above-right. New
anchor is called top_rechts
- corrected s_t-ligature in biolinum bold
Ingo Preuss points out thatsome glyphs were wrongly named:
- uni0237 is now called dotlessj (instead of uniF6BE, which was wrongly named
this way)
- all references to dotlessj now point to uni0237

In the following cases names were corrected, unicode points stayed unchanged
- tcommaaccent (uni0163) is now called tcedilla
- Tcommaaccent (uni0162) is now called Tcedilla
- uni021B is now called tcommaaccent
- uni021A is now called Tcommaaccent
- the locl-OpenType-substitution for Romanian wasn't changed, because it already
worked correctly
- orthogonal is now called uni221F
- sun is now called uni263C
- I had to move that .cap-variants of the accents to the PUA, because they
covered space where Unicode in between defined new characters. So I
systematically moved the .cap-Accents to:
grave.cap uni0358 -> uniE358
acute.cap uni0359 -> uniE359
circumflex.cap and so forth
breve.cyrcap 360
(regular, italic)
- new point accent at uni0358
- new Mark for uni0358 in many O/o-characters
- improved support for POJ (Taiwan transcription)
- now kerning for kernclasspair +
- first use of contextual chaining substitution:
- when a combining accent follows an i, the dotlessi is used to prevent an
accent crash
- when one of the accented or leftwarding glyphs such as (ä, V) follow an f,
a short neck version of f (f.alt) is being used for optical reasons
- there was the "space" in a left kern class (together with dot, etc.). This
resulted in too few visible room when a "space" should seperate a word from the
now beginning quotation.
Italic: Correction of schwa

- There was a compiling-problem with the LinLibertine_Re-2.8.14.otf that caused
a unusable GSUB-table. Though outline-information seemed to be unaffected MacOSX
didn’t want to intall it. This version should be without this bug, the reason
for the old bug could not be discovered.
- Change in the OpenType-Substitution table (different order of interpretation:
sups and sinf should be substituted even if oldstyle flag is also set.

used; f_i_()-ligatures are set off in Turkish because it hinders the
differenciation of f-i and f-dotlessi in that language.
/ Italic variant now uses the same perfect OpenType-GSUB as the regular.
/ new for the italic. Adding missing sc-glyphs, bring others to the latest

Changes to version 2.7.9 regular(|) & italic(/) & capitals (20071228)
- new Hinting! Now it is possible to use Libertine with Word on Windows
properly. The shape on screen should be clearer now on every system!
- new kern pairs for better typography
- some wrong contour directions corrected
- many small corrections
- OT "fina" has been removed from wordend-sigma
- countless small improvements
- kerning for Caps variant
- the conflict (that came up lately with a library update) between underlined
and regular is diminished

Changes to version 2.6.9 regular(|) & italic(/) & capitals (20070423)

- Symbols for „page“, „graph“, „picture“ and „table“ added
- Oldstyle numbers (minuscle numbers) were just contained as
proportionals. Somebody wanted them also as table numbers. Ladder became
standard oldstyles now. Some of these glyphs look somewhat thinner to fit them
on the fixed width.
-bold italic variant had a wrong style entry which seemed to confuse
Mac's fonthandling, also other style confusions should be fixed now
-bold italic also had wrong metrics which resulted in a cutoff of glyph
parts and wrong line spacing.

German interests:
-großes Eszett hinzugefügt (uni1E9E) entsprechend Kapitälchen-Eszett
-kleines Eszett so verändert, dass es zum großen passt (ſz statt ſs),
das vorige Eszett ist als germandbls.alt weiterenthalten
-Im Stilsatz ss03 kann für Schweizer nun automatisch von Eszetts auf ss
umgestellt werden.
-die dt. ÄÖÜ sind nun von der Alternativposition an die rechte Stelle
gerückt. Für die nichtdeutschsprachige Nutzung empfehlen sich jetzt die (vormals
standart, jetzt aber auf die Alternativposition gewechselten Akzentuierten)

Due to A. Panovs help hopefully a lot of design impriovements for the
cyrrilic alphabet.
Mainly: Є Љ Њ Б З Ф Ш Щ Ъ Ы Ь Э Ю Ө (and its small letter derivates) For
("Ь" in regular typeface has extra contour at left bottom.)

Lower part of "Ь" and "Ъ" (and for lowercase letters "ь", "ы",
"ѣ") differ. I think the letter "Ь" (or "ь" for lowercase)
should be
used as base for others.

("Ф" is still slightly asymmetric with respect to vertical axis.
It may produce artefacts with rendering.)

(Middle vertical stems in "Ш", "Щ" have not rounded lower

("Ш", "ш" are not quite symmetric agains middle vertical axis
typefaces). "Щ", "щ" must be updated accordingly.)

(The tongue in "Э" can have two stylistic variants: straight and
tilde-like. )
OK, then tilde-like.

(The designer decides which version should be selected. Some
other letters should follow this decision: U+0472, U+04E8, U+0404, etc.)

(The capital letters U+0472 and U+04E8 usually are identical,
excepting the case of archaic (before ca. XVIII century) form of U+0472.)

(The U+0473 frequently is narrower than "o" and U+04E9. In case
of a tilde-tongue in "Э" a tongue in U+0404 is not flipped, i.e. it has the same
diriction as in "Э".)

Small Caps:
- Some changes here for better spacing.
- FO-overlap (due to wrong kerning entry) removed

- Complete revision of the bold version. Should result in a clearer
shape and better thin-width-contrast

- Due to better support in the FontForge editor the OpenType-tables have
been completely redefined.

Changes to version 2.5.9 regular(|) & italic(/) & capitals (20070423)
- countless improvements as usual
- some unicode standard optimizations (NUL-glyph, .notdef, ...)
- U+0180 group of charakters were sometimes not the way the latest unicode wants
them so we changed them. This refers mainly to the differentiation of capital
and small letters
- Vietnamese horned vokals have been changed the way, that the horn is now
always at the same hight. All accented vietnamese glyphs were revised
- some optic improvements in placement of accents
- added a capital variant of hookabove and changed all the capital letters to
this new hookabove form. It is wider and lower for better line-holding
- kerning was greatly improved, i.e.: Kombinations like "f)", "f?", "(j"...
shouldn't overlap anymore. Capital letter words should now be better spaced.
- There was one wrong cyrrilic letter Lje (U+0409).
And there were some correct objections to the handling of the downgoing serif in
Dzhe/dzhe, De/de, Tse/tse, Shcha/shcha. These now have the same depth and
similar form
- Some small changes in cyrrilics most complex letter Zhe
but also in Ef
in the hardening and softening signs (should not look like a reversed P but like
the bud of the B),
Ya shouldn't look like a flipped R,
be had a too right tail,
breve.cyr didn't look cyrrillic enough,
ef shouldn't be too calligraphic,
dje/she have now x-hight-bars
- due to a bug U+1fc7 (an accented eta) was missing
- some eagled-eyed person had seen that the U+721 was not at its place
- perthousandzero added at U+E00E for full LaTex-support
- some accented smallcaps added to basic font table for LaTex-support (This
doesn't affect the Caps-version of Libertine, which already had all these
- removed a cyrrilic opentype entry that substituted N-o with the numberligature
because a stupid GNOME environment read out this table entry on a Spanish system
and messed up typography...

Changes to version 2.4.9 regular(|) & italic(/) & capitals (20070309)
- many countless improvements
- some letters are slimer now: a, k, c, r
this is especially useful for languages with longs words. German in the first
- on screen letters with round parts should now look more equal on screen
-C, D, G, S have now better (shorter) serifs which are more useful for the
standart printing size of 12-10pt
- the thinnest line should now have a width of at least 50 (improvements for
12-10pt printing)
- the whole range from U+180 -> U+01BF has been reworked
-small improvements in the IPA-Extensions
-for better acception of the old greek we changed the inverted breve to a tilde
which is more widely used..., accents also have received some improvements
-The cyrillic alphabeth has had again great changes due to unsatisfied users. We
now have more equal cyrillic serifs, some letters are thinner some wider,
spacing has been renewed
-p,i have now horizontal serifs in the cyrillic
-the bold regular is greatly improved. It's now fatter, looks more elegant
- the curive has also improvements:
J is now better
many things are corresponding to the improvements in the regular
-improvements in the capital variant

Changes to version 2.3.2regular(|) & italic(/) & capitals (20060920)
Countless improvements...
-especially for the italic, the kyrillic
-polish accents ogonki are now what they should be
-new: hebrew alphabeth
-accents brought to one hight (some dotted chars weren't)
-Same hight for capitals (already one point difference can the letter look
higher on screen. For print this doesn't play any role...
-superior/inferior numbers improved
-ae looks now different: mor organic. If you don't like this. Theres also an old
variant at the end of the font
-ij ligature isn't connected anymore
-greek accented chars improved (accents should now be optically at the same
position), kappa improved
-planet signs added
-Sternkreiszeichen hinzugefügt
-male, female,... improved

-----------Fertig-nach Tobias Vorschlägen----------------------------
02C4 (MODIFIER LETTER UP ARRORHEAD), * raised articulation (-> 005E ^
circumflex accent, 2303 ^ up arrowhead). Siehe
Wenn ich in die PDF-Datei schaue, sehen 02C2 (<), 02C3 (>), 02C4 (^) und
02C4 (v) größer aus als 02C4 (^) und 02C5 (v). Vielleicht sollte man für
02C2 bis 02C3 einfach ein gedrehtes '<' benutzen?
- Zeichenbreite im Block "SPACE MODIFIER LETTERS (02B0–02FF)"
( ist zum Teil verkehrt.
Diese Zeichen sollen alle eine endliche Breite haben (im Gegensatz zu
den COMBINING DIACRITICAL MARKS (0300-036F), die auf/unter einem Zeichen
sitzen sollen). Insbesondere:
- zu Breit: hochgestellte h, w und y
- viel zu schmall: T, _|_ und + (etc.)
- Zeichenbreite/Position im Block "COMBINING DIACRITICAL MARKS (0300-036F)
Bei den meisten Zeichen stimmt die Breite/Position, bis auf:
- 0306 COMBINING BREVE -> zu weit rechts
- 030B COMBING DOUBLE ACUTE ACCENT -> zu weit rechts.
- 0327 COMBINING CEDILLA -> viel, viel zu weit rechts!
-> Ich würde den Strich entweder etwas nach unten verlängern oder nach
etwas nach unten schieben; oder etwas nach links schieben? Jedenfalls
sieht "o" + U0338 (= ca. ø) komisch aus.
- Vielleicht ein klein bißchen zu weit rechts: 0323, 0330, 0331, 0342,
- 0384 GREEK TONOS -> Das Zeichen sollte normal breit sein und kein
"combining" Akzent.
Das Zeichen sollte anders als Sigma aussehen und zwar ohne den Bogen
unten (ca, wie "c", oft spitz zulaufend).
- 03F4 GREEK CAPITAL THETA SYMBOL -> anders als Theta, durchgehender
Strich in der Mitte
- 03F5 GREEK LUNATE EPSILON SYMBOL = straight epsilon -> Wie der Name
schon sagt ein nicht geschwungenes Epsilon. In der Physik benutzt man
oftmals beide Epsilons das gerade und das geschwungene.
(03F6 GREEK REVERSED LUNATE EPSILON = reversed straight epsilon -> bitte
das gedrehte 03F5 hinzufügen)
- 03F9 GREEK CAPITAL LUNATE SIGMA SYMBOL -> sollte anders als Sigma
aussehen, klassischerweise wie "C" (oft ohne Serifen und spitz zulaufend)

- 215F "1/ " -> Man sollte wohl die Breite so ändern, daß "1/" +
tiefgestellte Zahl (2080 bis 2089) gut aussehen.
> Durch Kerning gelöst

- Griechisch-Block: 03DA-03E1 fehlen (Archaische Buchstaben)
(Wieso die in MES-2 sind, weiß ich allerdings nicht)
-> das (Nicht-)Element-von-Symbol finde ich zu groß, es sollte nicht so
groß wie Versalien/Großbuchstaben sein, sondern so groß oder etwas
kleiner als Gemeine/Kleinbuchstaben. Das kleine Element-von-Symbol finde
ich zu klein.

-further small corrections in all faces
- I created TrueTypeInstructed variants of LinuxLibertine named "LinuxLibertine
T" they can be therefore installed paralelly to the unhinted variants.
Note 1: I recommend all users of OpenOffice 2.0.x on Linux to use the unhinted
variants. On my linux-systems the unhinted variant is automaticly hinted and
better looking than the hinted! On Windows-Systems -- nevertheless -- the
unhinted variant is ugly on screen. Here you should take the instructed/hinted
Note 2: Hints (in the meaning of TrueTypeInstructions) do not have any effect on

| all Capitals are 60pt less high

| uni022C (O mit tilde und Macron): Das Macron (¯) ist etwas zu weit rechts

Anmerkung: Wenn man jetzt noch die Diacritical Marks verschiebt, dann verändern
sie sich in allen anderen Akzentuierten Zeichen mit, wo sie durch Referenzen
eingebunden sind. Daher habe ich die Verschiebungen ersteinmal nicht
|Beim kleinen psi [03C8] kann ich mich nicht recht an den schrägen Mittelstrich

| 1E48: Das _ beim N sollte wohl etwas länger sein oder etwas nach links
verschoben werden
| Bei Greek Extended (1F00 bis 1FFF) ist bei 'E und 'H (allein und mit
verschiedenen weiteren Akzenten) das ' vor der position 0, und
überschreibt somit das vorherige Zeichen. Das ist wohl nicht Absicht,
oder? Analog bei `I (1FDA).
| uni2102: Das C (für die Menge komplexe Zahlen) sollte einen
Doppelstrich haben, wie deine H,Q,Z,R
| 213D bis 2149: das gilt auch für die Zeichen hier (gamma, Gamma, Pi,
Sigma, D, d, e und j)
| 2153 bis 215A: Die Brüche 1/3, 2/3, 1/5, 2/5, 3/5, 4/5, 1/6, 5/6
fehlen; besonders 1/3 und 2/3 wären schön
| 2217 und 2218 sollten witer unten stehen (genaus so hoch wie das Minus
und der Punkt 2219) da das Multiplikationsoperatoren sind.
| 226A und 226B: Das sind vielgrößer/vielkleiner Zeichen. Ich hätte sie
aber so nicht erkannt. Nimm einfach << und >> und schiebe sie ein wenig

freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public

General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
your programs, too.

When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.

To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.

For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their

We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
distribute and/or modify the software.

Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original

Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.

The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
modification follow.


0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below,
refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".

Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.

1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
along with the Program.

You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.

2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:

a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.

b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
parties under the terms of this License.

c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
the Program is not required to print an announcement.)

These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.

Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
collective works based on the Program.

In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
the scope of this License.

3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:

a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,

b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
customarily used for software interchange; or,

c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
received the program in object code or executable form with such
an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)

The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
special exception, the source code distributed need not include
anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
itself accompanies the executable.

If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.

4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
parties remain in full compliance.

5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
the Program or works based on it.

6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
this License.

7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.

If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other

It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
impose that choice.

This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
be a consequence of the rest of this License.

8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
the limitation as if written in the body of this License.

9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
address new problems or concerns.

Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software

10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.

As a special exception, if you create a document which uses this font, and embed this font or unaltered portions of this font into the document, this font does not by itself cause the resulting document to be covered by the GNU General Public License. This exception does not however invalidate any other reasons why the document might be covered by the GNU General Public License. If you modify this font, you may extend this exception to your version of the font, but you are not obligated to do so. If you do not wish to do so, delete this exception statement from your version.





How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs

If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.

To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.

Copyright (C)

This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
(at your option) any later version.

This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
GNU General Public License for more details.

You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301, USA

Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.

If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
when it starts in an interactive mode:

Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.

The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may
be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.

You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:

Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
`Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

Ty Coon, President of Vice

This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may
consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
Public License instead of this License.

If you miss the directory "Fonts" here, you still have to compile the source-files which lay in the directory "SRC". You do this by calling "./make". Please note, that you'll need a recent version of fontforge to do so. You will also need a unix shell to interprete the scripts. If you have not a certain reason to compile the fonts yourself, we recommend you to download the respective "LinLibertineFont" archive from our website:

Windows: Copy fonts into folder C:\windows\fonts.
Linux: Use system programs such as KDE-Kontrol to install the fonts. These also update Linux specific system files.

Unsere Schriften sind frei im Sinne der GPL, d.h. (stark vereinfacht) dass Veränderungen an der Schriftart erlaubt sind unter der Bedingung, dass diese wieder der Öffentlichkeit unter gleicher Lizenz freigegeben werden. Querdenker behaupten oft, dass bei der Verwendung einer GPL-Schrift eingebettet in beispielsweise eine PDF auch diese freigestellt werden müsse. Deshalb gibt es die sogenannte "Font-exception" der GPL (welche diesem Lizenztext hinzugefügt wurde). Weitere Informationen zur GPL (Lizenztext mit Font-Exzeption als GPL.txt in diesem Paket).
Zusätzlich stehen die Schriften unter der Open Font License (siehe OFL.txt).

Our fonts are free in the sense of the GPL. In short: Changing the font is allowed as long as the derivative work is published under the same licence again. Pedantics keep claiming that the embedded use of GPL-fonts in i.e. PDFs requires the free publication of the PDF as well. This is why our GPL contains the so called "font exception". Further information about the GPL (licence text with font exception see GPL.txt in this package).
Additionally our fonts are licensed under the Open Fonts License (see OFL.txt).

SIL OPEN FONT LICENSE Version 1.1 - 26 February 2007

The goals of the Open Font License (OFL) are to stimulate worldwide
development of collaborative font projects, to support the font creation
efforts of academic and linguistic communities, and to provide a free and
open framework in which fonts may be shared and improved in partnership
with others.

The OFL allows the licensed fonts to be used, studied, modified and
redistributed freely as long as they are not sold by themselves. The
fonts, including any derivative works, can be bundled, embedded,
redistributed and/or sold with any software provided that any reserved
names are not used by derivative works. The fonts and derivatives,
however, cannot be released under any other type of license. The
requirement for fonts to remain under this license does not apply
to any document created using the fonts or their derivatives.

"Font Software" refers to the set of files released by the Copyright
Holder(s) under this license and clearly marked as such. This may
include source files, build scripts and documentation.

"Reserved Font Name" refers to any names specified as such after the
copyright statement(s).

"Original Version" refers to the collection of Font Software components as
distributed by the Copyright Holder(s).

"Modified Version" refers to any derivative made by adding to, deleting,
or substituting -- in part or in whole -- any of the components of the
Original Version, by changing formats or by porting the Font Software to a
new environment.

"Author" refers to any designer, engineer, programmer, technical
writer or other person who contributed to the Font Software.

Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining
a copy of the Font Software, to use, study, copy, merge, embed, modify,
redistribute, and sell modified and unmodified copies of the Font
Software, subject to the following conditions:

1) Neither the Font Software nor any of its individual components,
in Original or Modified Versions, may be sold by itself.

2) Original or Modified Versions of the Font Software may be bundled,
redistributed and/or sold with any software, provided that each copy
contains the above copyright notice and this license. These can be
included either as stand-alone text files, human-readable headers or
in the appropriate machine-readable metadata fields within text or
binary files as long as those fields can be easily viewed by the user.

3) No Modified Version of the Font Software may use the Reserved Font
Name(s) unless explicit written permission is granted by the corresponding
Copyright Holder. This restriction only applies to the primary font name as
presented to the users.

4) The name(s) of the Copyright Holder(s) or the Author(s) of the Font
Software shall not be used to promote, endorse or advertise any
Modified Version, except to acknowledge the contribution(s) of the
Copyright Holder(s) and the Author(s) or with their explicit written

5) The Font Software, modified or unmodified, in part or in whole,
must be distributed entirely under this license, and must not be
distributed under any other license. The requirement for fonts to
remain under this license does not apply to any document created
using the Font Software.

This license becomes null and void if any of the above conditions are
not met.


Libertine and LaTex
