No, it's not on the website yet. Part of the work that has been done for
4.69 is to tidy up the redraw system. The code was still structured for
the two original redraw engines, system font (VDU) and Fastchars (DSA).

The code for the new redraw engines (outline fonts and ViewFinder) was
somewhat bolted on. Most of the work has been done now but there's still
a few bits that I'd like to move around so it's more clearly structured.

A new version will be uploaded once done, probably this weekend.
