IPAex Fonts are JIS X 0213:2004 compliant OpenType fonts based on TrueType
outlines provided by Information-technology Promotion Agency, Japan
(IPA) from 2010.  The older JIS X 0213:2000 font gliphs are also
supported via IVS (Ideographic Variation Sequence).  These are suitable
for both display and printing.
These new fonts are developed from IPA Fonts to provide the best balance
for the Japanese documentation mixed with Western characters by following
Japanese printing tradition.  Japanese characters (Kanji, Kana and
punctuation marks) are full width mono-space pitch, and Western characters
are proportional pitch.
This metapackage depends on fonts-ipaexfont-{mincho,gothic} packages to
provide IPAex Mincho and IPAex Gothic Fonts.

fonts-ipaexfont (00201-2) experimental; urgency=low
[ Andreas Beckmann <> ]
* introduce changes in 00103-14.1
- otf-ipaexfont-*.preinst: Unregister the ttf-japanese-*.ttf alternatives.
- fonts-ipaexfont-*.preinst: Clean up the ttf-japanese-*.ttf alternatives
set up by otf-ipaexfont-* in squeeze. This needs to be done in
fonts-ipaexfont-* as well since there is no guarantee that the
transitional otf-ipaexfont-* packages were installed and did clean this
up. Since new installations of fonts-ipaexfont-* cannot be distinguished
from "upgrades" from otf-ipaexfont-* this needs to be run on new
installations, too.  (Closes: #700435)
