In the past few years the following things have occurred:
- psnfss has been greatly updated and improved, affording the naive
user the packages:
as well as Fourier and Euler and Computer Modern Super and Latin
- fontinst has matured and become much more capable and to document it
- Philipp Lehman has made available his wonderful Font Installation
Guide which I can't praise highly enough.
- and as an alternative for Plain TeX users there's ``OFS'' Olsak's
Font System which is quite interesting (and also has a LaTeX
and that's just what's available for _everyone_ for ``free''.
Mac OS X users also get Jonathan Kew's wonderful XeTeX and Will
Robertson's Fontspec, and there are a lot more commercial math font
packages available (MathTime Professional is especially nice).
