Extensions for an enhanced ligature mechanism were added by D.E. Knuth in 1989.
Extensions to handle extended font metric files (``OFM'') were added by John Plaice in December 1995 and January 1996, resulting in the new program OFM2OPL.
ofm2opl is based on the WEB source code for tftopl(1), although nowadays it is a link to omfonts, implemented entirely in C.
The primary authors of Omega are John Plaice and Yannis Haralambous. Omega (and Aleph) are now maintained as part of TeX Live.
