Handling fonts in ConTeXt
Willi Egger
CG Journal 2021, p. 7-19
abstract: Obviously when typesetting electronically, we need to have at least one font available for use as base font. Although there are quite a number of fonts delivered with the distribution, often we need to use a custom font. It is not that complicated to use a third­-party font, how­ever one needs to implement it in a structured way in order to make it available to TeX. The following article gives insight into the basic prin­ciples of how this can be done in ConTeXt.

MetaPost paths and pairs
Taco Hoekwater
CG Journal 2021, p. 48-92
abstract: This talk and paper tries to explain everything related to paths, pairs, pens and transforms in MetaPost. A fair bit of familiarity with Meta­Post’s data types and general syntax is assumed. In particular, I as­sume you have read my ‘sparks, tags, suffixes and subscripts’ article.
I will first discuss the creating of paths, followed by the creating of pairs, and then the creating of pens. Finally, I will discuss the opera­tions on those items, for instance, by using transformations.
