    This comes as a surprise. I was expecting to see this announcement come from The Type Founders eventually.

    They either know how to fold them or it was too hard to hold them.
    Sorry for your loss, David.

    Some negotiations often take a long time to reach an agreement. Hoping that both parties are satisfied.

    Chris, I love your use of Amstelvar Alpha, but I heartily recommend to use the final Amstelvar release that you can download from Github :)
