Finally got round to build the binary - just get 

I recovered the test results I did almost a month ago from my old computer, 
on all fedora 26 shipped fonts - will upload at some point. Break-down is this:

3283 fonts examined in total
1493 fonts with CFF outlines (skipped for truetype hinting instruction check)
1395 fonts with truetype outlines passed
394 fonts with various degree of hinting instruction warnings/errors
1 zero-length font file, filed as
                                   Redhat had already shipped an updated font 
package (I have not re-tested yet).

1 + 394 + 1395 + 1493 == 3283

i.e. roughly 400 (22%) out of 1800 of fonts with truetype hinting could do with 
some love on correcting the hinting instructions. Quite similar to a year ago.

As you know the delay was due to computer broke and new computer, so please 
feel free to donate ( ) . I 
want the Mac OS X binary to be as fully-featured (needs to build with a newer 
cross-compiler), so 2.1.1 will be a Mac OS X-specific release, whenever that 
might be.

More details in the release notes about what changed in the last 12 months 
since 2.0:

I have decided to revert the "Windows-only problem fixed: can now accept 
non-ascii font name" change, because it causes intermittent (about 1 in 10) 
failures. So the binary is built to work for english font file names only, as 
it did for the release 2.0 a year ago. Sorry about that.
