I use Adobe Illustrator and FontLab.
Three new minuscule ligature characters have been required by colleagues from the Arnamagnaeanean Institute in Copenhagen, to be supported in the upcoming vs. 1.4 of Andron Mega: • o_o lig. with curl • d-rotunda_v lig. • g_v lig.
These characters appear to have not yet been testified or realized elsewhere. If you have related information or critique about adding them, please make a statement. The 3 characters will be assigned to the codepoints EAD3, EAD4 and EAD5

Thanks, Odd Einar. I contacted the Museum für Druckkunst and asked for an offering for our conference, on April 24–26, 2014. Now it would be helpful to know, how much of you are actually willing to attend. And as for funding: what about keeping it simple and share the costs. I am prepared to organize everything, I’ll work out what the expenses will be, then each participant pays a conference fee. I will also be glad to assist everyone with travel and accomodation matters, in case this is requested.
Spread the word!
I’d like to propose a meeting about LINCUA and its future prospects, to be held in spring 2014 in Leipzig. The envisioned venue is the Museum für Druckkunst (http://www.druckkunst-museum.de) which is located in one of Leipzig’s famous former printing officines, Haag-Drugulin (later Offizin Andersen Nexö) which has been noted in the past for its multi-script expertise in lead composing.
Everyone who has been involved in LINCUA-related work so far or would be interested in contributing or learning about, is hereby invited to give a preliminary notice of a possible participation.
Just to note that the conference was held successfully last week in Tours. For the MUFI party, Odd Einar Haugen and me were attending as speakers. We enjoyed the discussions and got a lot of good feed-back for our presentations. Merci to Rémi Jimenes and all the others for their wonderful hospitality.
I think that ♮ is actually not the b-quadrata but the natural sign. But it is a worthwhile question wether a b-quadrata should get encoded. As a lowercase first, I suppose.

Dear Rémi Jimenes, thank you very much for posting this! The draft of themes for the conference is definitely a most worthwhile prospect. I think you will hear something from MUFI rather soon (towards a possible contribution), meanwhile we shall sort things out to make a reasonable proposal.
with kind regards, A. Stötzner (MUFI)
