  C H A N G E L O G
  =================

  This file summarizes *all* types of changes to the gFont sources,
  i.e. changes between each patchlevel (1.x.y->1.x.(y+1) and
  1.x.y->1.(x+1).0). Take this logfile for concrete and detailed
  information about every single change.
  ___________________________________________________________________________

  Changes between 1.0.2 and 1.0.3:

    *) Out of memory checkings (17-Aug-1999):
       All memory allocation are now using the GNU xmalloc, which
       provides out of memory checkings.
       [Denis Barbier]

    *) Allow font effects in the Fontmap file (28-Jul-1999):
       Special font effects can be inserted in the Fontmap file as
       in the special.map file for Postscript fonts.
       See dvips documentation for details.
       [Denis Barbier]

    *) Do not include precompiled fonts (27-Jul-1999):
       Because of problems with big-endian architecture, as noted by
       Dave Plonka.
       [John Bazik <jsb@cs.brown.edu>]

    *) Allow 8-bit characters (21-Jul-1999):
       With the old CM fonts, 8-bit characters were rendered via a
       juxtaposition of letters and accents.  With the EC fonts, it's
       much easier to write accented letters.
       [Denis Barbier]

    *) Check for big-endian architecture (21-Jul-1999):
       [Dave Plonka <plonka@doit.wisc.edu>]

    *) Improve checking of perl version (21-Jul-1999):
       [Frederic le Mouel <Frederic.LeMouel@irisa.fr>]
