DESCRIPTION

Amiga Typeface Engine (ATE) is my answer to Adobe Type Manager (tm Adobe
Systems Inc) for the Amiga.  It allows apps using the OS to draw text with,
to use PostScript typefaces like any other Amiga font.  ATE draws fonts
character by character on demand, to improve performance and make it
actually usable on 68000 systems.

NEW FEATURES

Compared to ATMbeta3d, ATE beta4d supports HWGPOST and fixes big problems
with KS/WB 3.0 systems.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

Amiga with KS/WB 2.04 or later (V36 diskfont.library), 2 MB total memory,
hard drive, some CLI savvy if you plan to install more typefaces.  
Recommended: 68020/881 combination or better, typefaces from ATM (tm) for
Windows (Times, Helvetica, Symbol, Courier).  Support files included for
those typefaces.

AVAILABILITY

Aminet, via:
ftp://wuarchive.wustl.edu/pub/aminet/util/misc/Atebeta4d.lha (251404)

Also available from me via UUencoded E-MAIL on request, and from Amiga
Computing UK's November 1995 issue.

PRICE:

Free.  Commercial version using a Bullet style library with optional
patches and gadtools/ASL user interface in the works.

DISTRIBUTABILITY

As per Availability only, please.  You can ask me if you want to
re-distribute ATEbeta4d.  I'll probably approve as this is just for
tracking.
