    Will there be a list anywhere detailing all of the changes between 0.9 and 0.95?  Having just learnt the spec inside and out I’m loathe to go trawling months of this blog or examine the spec again from scratch.

    All changes were posted in July and September. The blog here is the only list of changes.

    Do you mean all changes were posted in this blog in July and September?  I was just hoping for a formal list somewhere that summarised it all.  I was going to do a merge on the Word documents and find out that way, but I notice the Word version of the spec has been dropped..

    One of the reasons I ask is, there was a subtle mistake I found in the 0.9 spec a few days ago, perhaps too minor to warrant an entry on this blog, but I’d hoped it was corrected, along with other minor errors too.  Having just checked though, I see that it unfortunately hasn’t been corrected:

    // – Embedded font obfuscation

    1. Generate a 128-bit GUID (Globally Unique Identifier) for the font to be obfuscated. Instead of a true GUID, a 128-bit random number MAY be used [O2.21]. The 16 bytes of the 128-bit GUID are referred to in the following text by the placeholder names B00, B01, B02, B03; B10, B11; B20, B21; B20, B31, B32, B33, B34, B35, B36, and B37


    The second B20 should be B30.
