Major New Features

Improved OpenType generation
Adobe FDK for OpenType (AFDKO) version 2.5 is integrated, and the 6,400 glyph limit is removed. FLS can now save and generate fonts with up to 65,635 glyphs.

Interpolated Nodes
Contour / Interpolate / Horizontal and Vertical enables and disables the ?interpolated? state of a node (in X and Y separately). The position of an interpolated node will change accordingly if nodes between which an interpolated node is located are moved.

Class Kerning Overlay Preview
All class members being overlaid semi-transparently on top of each other for the active kerning pair in the Metrics Window / Kerning mode if Tools / Options / Metrics window / Show all kerning class members for selected pair is enabled.

OpenType Layout-aware Metrics Window
New setting in the Metrics window toolbar is available: Process Features. If enabled, OpenType Layout substitutions are performed to the text entered in the Metrics Window depending on the features enabled in the OpenType Preview panel. For example, if you type in ?Hello? in the Metrics window, switch to the Metrics mode, in the OpenType Preview panel enable the ?smcp? feature, then the Metrics window will show the glyphs ?/H/ Works in the Metrics In the Preview, Metrics and Kerning mode of the Metrics window. OpenType Layout features must be compiled using the Compile button in the OpenType panel for this to work.

Note: FontLab Studio 5 can directly create OpenType Layout tables for non-complex scripts. OpenType Layout tables required for complex scripts such as Arabic, Devanagari or Thai can be added with the free Microsoft VOLT application.
