New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
ttfautohint is the new autohinter in town, which I hope will make hinting fonts faster and easier, so all type designers can make web fonts that look good on Windows :-)
I made a fun little promotional video, http://youtu.be/81ioae5XNew
There's more details on the ttfautohint homepage, http://www.freetype.org/ttfautohint
And Werner is accepting donations to help fund the development at http://pledgie.com/campaigns/15816
