Hi Florian,

looks like we have to either publish muse under the GPL3 or use an older feta font (from 2009).
using an older font is not a problem as long as the glyphs don't look ugly (feta had major improvements in being rendered to small glyphs (which is what we need), but i dunno if that was before or after 2009)

I'm not sure but I expect moving MusE to GPLv3 would also require getting permission from everybody who might have gotten a patch in. This may prove hard..

So I guess we either use the old font OR, since you already use them as PNG, have some artist draw new images? Or were you planning on using the font directly?

gotcha :) i understand this, as we could upgrade the license whenever we want; we only may not downgrade
but i'm not a lawyer ;)

i don't plan to use the font directly; this may be done in a very late version if wished, but i don't think so.
in general, my program only does three things with these pixmaps: draw them at a certain position, find out their dimensions and maybe change their color. everything which supports that can be used to render the scores

short answer: no
