Libre Arts - Fontmatrix 0.6.0 review

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

How’d you get your Fontmatrix to have all these awesome features? Besides using a dark theme, my version looks nothing yours and is lacking most of the features. This grid view I have is buggy and covers up the font names, and never lets me change the size from 24 pt. Bizarre

After 0.6.0, Pierre started moving things around and then completely abandoned the project.

Can that old version still be used? I tried using Debian snapshot repo but too many conflicting packages…

I tagged that release when I moved the code from now defunct SVN repo to GitHub: Release v0.6.0 · fontmatrix/fontmatrix · GitHub
