i always try to incorporate such new things (fonts) into context as soon as possible; the drawback of that is that when a beta font becomes updates, one also may need to update context

in the near future more font updates will take place; some of you may know already that there is a new font project started in a few months where the core of the free fonts in the tex distribuitions (times, paladio, etc) will be updated: (1) merging the regular, quasi and vn variants, (2) provide open type alternatives, (3) maybe add math support to all of them, (4) make them lm glyph compatible [i.e. adding shapes] and maybe more; this project is being substantially funded by CSTug, Dante, Gust, NTG and TugIndia, with TUG and maybe other groups stepping in later. 

since i'm one of the initiators of this project, you may expect context to be an early adopter; you are warned
