Hi Hans,

the new beta, 2015.07.10 00:05, messes up punctuation (.:,;) for some fonts
like Calluna. This happens with and without \usemodule[newotf]:

\definefontfamily  [default] [rm] [Calluna]\setupbodyfont     [default]
\starttext
This is not, as it should be; Email: email at example.net\stoptext

​

renders as:

This is not’ as it should be’ Email’ email at example’net

> - The mem footprint of initial loading a font is smaller.
> - Initial loading can a bit slower depending on the kind of font (no big
> deal as we cache files) and if really needed can be sped up a bit.
> - The cached instance is smaller.
> - Loading the cached font is faster (not that it was slow but still).
> - Some bits and pieces have been optimized (there is room for more but
> I might decide not to do that).
> - Extra substitution features like tlig and trep are now runtime and not
> cached.
> - Processing in node mode can be somewhat faster for complex fonts.
> - The generic font code will stay as it is for at least a while after the
> new code has become stable and the current method will stay around too.
