Updating basic Latin character set

Last week I focused on improving the outlines and spacing of the basic Latin character set (a–z and A–Z) in Cantarell regular. This is an important step before I begin tackling the accented characters used for extended Latin. This way, I’ll be sure that the accented characters are built using good quality glyphs as building blocks. Apart from the alphabet, I also reviewed and corrected the outlines and spacing of numerals and related mathematical signs.

I raised and attempted to tackle the following bugs:

Bug 702713 [resolved]
Stroke widths in uppercase of Cantarell Regular are not harmonized properly

Bug 702955 [no patches yet]
Outline of uppercase U needs improvement
