I think for the next release, take the code available at:
as the starting point and add necessary support for multi-platform and
some UI and we can confortably switch to a better in-Squeak TrueType
support. Before that, loading all glyph information in the image is a
bit too expensive in the international setting. For Japanese version,
there is an image distributed with TTF loaded, and I believe there is
a Korean version like that as well. Hopefully we can provide a better
basis for such efforts as well.

The betas at http://squeakland.org/download/ are almost done. So
you can check them out. Basically 15 points BitstreamVeraSans is used
for most places.

For the official one, similar to Koreans. Bundle the bitmap font
for now (but separated Etoys image for Japanese workshop organizers).

One idea is to have 4.0.1 release soon and incorporate the
translations. But, 4.0 may not be able to have enough translations,
