What's new in Mac OS CZ Bundle 8.5

• New versions of fonts
All Czech fonts, which are distributed with Czech versions of the Macintosh operating system, have been updated.  Mac OS CZ Bundle 8.5 includes version 3.0 of these fonts, which now always uses the TrueType format. Included are also some new fonts that were added into Mac OS 8.5 as alternatives to standard Chicago and Charcoal.

• System resources for Appearance
For systems Mac OS 8.0 and newer, essential resources for selecting alternate fonts in the Appearance control panel have been included. In Mac OS 8.0 and Mac OS 8.1 the font Charcoal CE has been added, in Mac OS 8.5 all alternate fonts are available in the Appearance's pop-up menu. For Mac OS 8.5 there is also a new "small system font" called Lucida Grande CE. This font is planned to replace currently used Geneva CE in future versions of Mac OS. However, the included version of this font is not final, so be careful using it.

• Unofficial additions
Considering the needs and wishes of Czech Macintosh users, some 3rd-party products have been added to this version of CZ Bundle. Please note, that these products are not officially supported by Apple Computer, Inc. These additions include some special keyboard definitions, ScriptSwitcher control panel for switching default system language script, and a package of special fonts called ProFont, which is primarily targetted at software developers.
