Hi,

There's a new lmtx upload with a few fixes in publication lists (TS made 
some tests).

For those who like fonts, there is an update of the punk font (the mkiv 
variants dates from 2008 which is ancient on a software timeline).

You can run

   meta-imp-punk.mkxl

to get an idea. There's also a typescript:

   type-imp-punk.mkxl

one can create different versions and play with random variants and 
such. The question is: do we need more metapost font magic and 
infrastructure?

For "pdf features that browsers implement fuzzy or not at all" lovers 
there is

test
     \startalternate[text={A}]
         \dorecurse{10}{A }
         \startalternate[text={B}]
              \dorecurse{10}{B }
         \stopalternate
          \dorecurse{10}{A }
     \stopalternate
test \par


test \startalternate[text={e=mc^2}]!$e=mc^2$\stopalternate\par
test \alternate{e=mc^2}{copy:}\nbsp$e=mc^2$\par

which cheats on cut and paste (if you know where to click). (It actually 
will replace something more low level which is probably not used 
anyway.)
