A few days after 2.11, comes 2.12.
This new release offers a feature many people have asked for : shading made with lines. This is, of course, optional and it can be turned off.
- Plus, you will get the complete "W" family for glyphs.

a small remark : the problem when shading with lines is to avoid gaps and leaps between two quadrant. Normally, all shadings made by my current systems are aligned. Now, this only work if the whole text is seen as a single picture. So, you will currently see imperfections in shading with :
- the screen output (except at large sizes). To speed up screen drawing, I store the drawing of individual groups, and copy them. It's rather efficient, but it makes it a bit difficult to get the right alignment then (I used to suppose that two groups like A#1234 look exactly the same, which is true with the old shading system, and false with the new).
Some copy and paste formats, if you chose "one picture per cadrat".
- PDF files when "respect text layout" is not checked.
