Merriweather-ttf: update to 2.002.

30 Oct 2017 (Eben Sorkin) Merriweather v2.002

    Made first Variable font version with the Roman. Italic is not generating yet.

General

    Fixed interpolation issues in Both Roman and italic.
    Quotes ‘“”’ made clearer.
    ‹›«» made less wide and more typical
    All dashes and math symbols: heights corrected.
    ¿ ? adjusted to be somewhat less distinctive
    all 10 arrows → now included
    Diacritic anchor positions made common across family
    Combining Diacritics centered on zero widths
    Diacritic design generally improved and Vietnamese diacritics made so they \ 
are not made from composites (properly designed) and so they won’t be clipped.
    File efficiency gained from forcing all glyphs that should made only from \ 
composites to do so.
    Clunky spacing and design for in some Currency glyphs corrected
    Lining Figures Added
    Zero slash added
    Non standard use of composites (flipped shapes) corrected
    Missing Latin glyphs added
    Total Glyph count in Roman and Italic made to match.
    Open Type code added: aalt, ccmp, locl, sups, numr, dnom, frac, ordn, lnum, \ 
onum, case, liga, zero, cpsp
    Added the Published (circle P) symbol
    OpenType Features: Update code for more languages
    Fractions: Improved and added limited support for inferior or subscript numbers
    Weight Scale: Altered instance weights across roman and italic so nominal \ 
weights appear more even; italics are still slightly lighter, but less contrast \ 
with roman
    Symbols: Made all styles share reference glyphs for copyright, registered \ 
and published symbols
    Added Gawker/Elizabeth Style curling quotes, dollar and question mark and \ 
mediumBlackSquare (uni25FC) to a Stylistic set (ss01)

Language

    Latin: Found and upgraded all non-combining diacritics to combining, and all \ 
combining now have zero width
    Cyrillic: Found and fixed many side-bearing problems
    Vietnamese: Fixed diacritics and the glyphs they are used for, as well as \ 
the o and u horns

Technology

    OTF: Improved blue zones for PS OTFs

Italic specific fixes

    Missing Cyrillic glyphs in Italic added
    Fixed denominator and fraction glyphs
    Corrected weight inconsistency in Currency Glyphs
