Font Reserve 3.1.2 Update Released -- Extensis has released a minor update to Font Reserve, one of the font management utilities in its stable. (Extensis also owns Suitcase, and recently purchased Font Reserve's parent company DiamondSoft; see "Extensis Buys DiamondSoft" in TidBITS-686. You can also find a FAQ about the purchase, and what it means for the future of both products, at the Extensis Web site.) Most notable in the Font Reserve 3.1.2 update is improvement when activating fonts within the Classic environment. Also, a crashing problem with the Font Reserve plug-in for Adobe Illustrator 10 has been fixed. Other unspecified improvements have also been made for the plug-ins for InDesign 2 and QuarkXPress 4 and 5. (For more on Font Reserve, see "Font Reserve Moves to Mac OS X" in TidBITS-620). The update is a free 9.4 MB download. [JLC]
