An update to Suitcase Fusion 5 is available today that provides support for Typekit Desktop fonts, Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) and Windows 8.1.
Adobe recently brought new desktop fonts to Creative Cloud subscribers. This update to Suitcase Fusion 5 (v16.0.4) adds support for these new desktop fonts, enabling you to view your Typekit desktop library in Suitcase Fusion 5 as well as browse, preview, search and compare the synched fonts.
You don’t need to do anything special to enable this feature. When you sync Typekit fonts to your desktop, the new Typekit library in Suitcase Fusion automatically is created and populated with your new fonts.
With this update, you are also able to preview and apply Typekit desktop fonts from the Extensis font panels in Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator. This makes it easy to do your design work and apply fonts without switching back and forth to your font manager to preview fonts.
This functionality is in addition to the already existing connection to the WebINK web font library in the Extensis panel. WebINK web fonts can be used in Photoshop for free when mocking and comping websites for clients.
Also, if you haven’t enabled a connection to the Google Font library, you can easily do so by selecting File > Enable Google Web Fonts. This creates a dynamic connection to the open source Google font collection that Suitcase Fusion keeps up to date. Every time a new font is added to the collection, it’s automatically downloaded to your Google font library.
Coming Soon: Universal Type Client support for OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), Windows 8.1 and Adobe Creative Cloud desktop fonts.
Apple announced today the availability of OS X Mavericks (10.9). This update includes a number of new features that can affect the performance of Extensis software.
We know that many organizations rely upon digital asset management and font management from Extensis. We have been testing beta software from Apple, and are now building and testing with the final release versions.
An updated version of Suitcase Fusion 5 will be available in 3-4 weeks that includes OS X Mavericks compatibility. Previous versions of Suitcase Fusion will not be updated, please upgrade to version 5 if you require Mavericks compatibility.
Universal Type Server
An updated Universal Type Client 4 will be available in about a month that supports OS X Mavericks. There are no known issues with the Server running on OS X Mavericks.
We will be releasing updates to Extensis Portfolio Server and the NetMediaMax add-on by the end of the year, 2013. These updates will include compatibility with OS X Mavericks, Windows 8.1, and Windows 2012 R2. There are no known issues with the Portfolio Desktop Client running on Mavericks.

Today we released an update to the Universal Type Client (v3.3) that adds full compatibility with Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion), adds a new font auto-activation plug-in for Adobe Photoshop CS6, and fixes a number of known issues.
The update is available free of charge to all existing Universal Type Server 3 customers.
To take advantage of the new features, download and install the updated client software.
NOTE: To take advantage of the Adobe CS6 plug-ins, be sure to install the CS6 first, followed by the update to the Universal Type Client. The client installer automatically locates your CS6 applications and places the new plug-ins in the appropriate locations.
