tcpdf has grown enormously since the version that is included in 1.2.x, from 1.2 MB to 9.3MB!
I would like to split tcpdf from the core, but we will be able to do that once we have the online installation of modules in place. Until then, what can we do to reduce the size?
Most of the bytes are taken up by a large number of fonts, so it would be a good idea to have a look at what fonts to include.
It's tricky though, as some fonts are required for some language groups. As you can see in this forum thread
, japanese sites need another font to be available, but if we use that on non-japanese sites, everybody suddenly has to install a 93-MB Asian Character update package for Adobe reader. So my question : what tcpdf fonts do we need to include for a basic core install so that we cover all languages?
are the fonts contained in the 1.2.x packages sufficient, or do we need to add one or two more?
thanks for your input!
