Andron Mega has yesterday been released in version 1.2.
Among various other character and glyph additions (plus about 300) the complete coverage of the new block A640–Old Cyrillic in Regular is worth noticing.

The Andron Mega fonts package now contains altogether 13.590 glyphs in five fonts.

For “Font pirats end as nasty skulls”.

Ah, the new old Cyrillic block.
Reminds me of the bar in W.C. Field's The Bank Dick -- "The New Old Lompoc House".

Hopefully, font pirates :-)
