Bitstream Inc. and Corel Corporation announced that Corel has licensed a Linux font server currently being developed by Bitstream. Corel will integrate this font server into the office and graphics suites that it is currently developing for Linux. Bitstream’s new Linux font server can render PostScript Type 1 fonts, in addition to TrueType and other industry standard font formats. It also succeeds at making fonts on the Linux OS user friendly by providing robust and intuitive font management that is comparable to what is currently available for the Windows or Macintosh operating systems. The new Bitstream technology will help the Linux platform overcome one of its most significant barriers to acceptance in the desktop market. www.bitstream.com, www.corel.com
