Hi Jens,

Well I must say I like the new look. FYI;

1) We seem to missing the function "fl_set_form_icon_data".

2) The size of the fonts seem to be off by 1 size choice. That is to say a 10pt font looks like 12, 12 looks like 14, etc.

3) The "Style" (fdesign) Shadow does not work and the label color, in my case, White font is now Black.

I realize these changes are in their infancy.

I do believe this addition is worth while and applaud your efforts. I will continue to use the git as my source for testing and test as you inform us of changes.

Thanks for your effort Jens,

   I just got a version with support for True Type fonts to
compile - and it also seems to run. So if you feel advente-
rous download the 'ttf' branch from the git repository and
give it a try;-) This version will automatically enable the
new feature, but you can switch it off by passing the op-
tion '--disable-xft' to the ./configure script - with that
it should (more or less) build to the old version.

The default fonts I've picked are, as Todd Denniston suggested,
'DejaVu Sans', 'DejaVu Sans Mono', 'DejaVu Serif' and 'Century
Schoolbook L'. I hope they're available everywhere (or will
automatically get replaced by something the Xft library thinks
is similar). That's, of course, no final decision.

Don't expect everyting to work flawlessly, this is still work
in progress!
                          Best regards, Jens
