The zipped folder contains the plugin and its associated fonts.
Download and install the plugin to your plugin folder. Install the fonts in your gimp fonts folder.
The filter can be accessed from Filters>>TextFX>>Joined-Up Text...

This is a functional update to the filter for Gimp 2.8 - there are no new features.
Changes include:
Further kerning for capital letters to lower case letters
New characters added to fonts
Text truncated at the end of the new path - to avoid creating junk overspill with over-long text entries

The improved kerning can be seen in the example below. The first line of text shows the old effect after the letters P and T. The second line shows the improved new effect.

Hi There,
suggestion: copyright symbol i.e., 'c' inside a circle.
Thanks

Rashid:
Here is a fuller example of the glyphs, outside the normal range of characters, added to the joined-up fonts. Gimp 2.8 doesn't provide an easy method of adding such characters to your text - so cut and paste is required. Copyright, Registered and Pound signs were added in quite an early version number -but it was easy not to realise that they were there.
