(Optional) Justification

  • Emergency security update: patchset fixes CVEs, 0-days, etc
  • Censorship event: patchset enables censorship circumvention
  • Critical bug-fix: patchset fixes a bug in core-functionality
  • Consistency: patchset which would make development easier if it were in both the alpha and release branches; developer tools, build system changes, etc

Change Description

  • Update Noto fonts
    • The repo changed structure, so I had to adjust the scripts to the new one
  • Arimo+Cousine+Tinos elsewhere are not included in the new Noto repo, I had to fetch them elsewhere
    • The new source has Cousine in more variants (Bold, Italic, BoldItalic), I added them
  • Updated STIX Math to STIX Two Math (I don't remember why we didn't do it)

How Tested

For the first, not correct version, I've built a Linux + Windows build, and tested with TZP.

I found some problems and then adjusted the script.

Then, for the second revision, I compared the old archives to the new ones (the filenames, not the contents), and I got the differences I expected.

Test builds:
