[NTG-context] Fonts problems

Good morning.

Of course I'm glad there are more and more free fonts in the ConTeXt. 
The project you spead about sounds great. But may I ask you for a favor? 
Would it be possible to add one more zip file to the downloading page of 
http://www.pragma-ade.com/---the zip file including all free fonts in 
the versions that are currently supported by the ConTeXt? I do not 
update my system very often, and that's why I often get into problems 
like this when I try to update ConTeXt. If it didn't spend a great deal 
of your time, it would help me (and perhaps more people) a lot. Thank 
you very much.

Yours thankful
M.K.

>.>   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.
