FontForge Portable 2012-07-31 has been released. FontForge is an outline font editor letting you create and edit postcript, truetype, opentype and other fonts. It's packaged in PortableApps.com Format so it can easily integrate with the PortableApps.com Platform. And it's open source and completely free.
An outline font editor that lets you create your own postscript, truetype, opentype, cid-keyed, multi-master, cff, svg and bitmap (bdf, FON, NFNT) fonts, or edit existing ones. Also lets you convert one format to another. FontForge has support for many macintosh font formats. FontForge's file selection box is a bit unusual. You can switch between drives using the bookmarks menu. Be sure not to remove any drive bookmarks as you would be unable to switch between drives as you move PCs.
PortableApps.com Installer / PortableApps.com Format
FontForge Portable is packaged in a PortableApps.com Installer so it will automatically detect an existing PortableApps.com installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in PortableApps.com Format, so it automatically works with the PortableApps.com Platform including the Menu and Backup Utility.
FontForge Portable is available for immediate download from the FontForge Portable homepage. Get it today!
