Yes. MataFont produces bitmaps (and IIAC, often optimised to the target
output device), in this time and age you need scalable outlines that
would be rasterised on the target device. MataFont as a language might
still superior for meta design, and then a MetaPost-based solution would
be the logical choice (e.g. the Latin Modern fonts).
