Open Type Variables

In a nut shell, what does this mean ? and how does it apply to someone using Glyphs App to design a typeface? Does it mean that various weights can all be packaged up into the one font?

All thoughts welcome

Perhaps you want to take an hour and watch the announcement from Wednesday:

And you can follow the TypeDrawers discussion:

You can export a Multiple Master setup as an OT Variable Font. The latest beta version 922 has an experimental implementation for the Weight axis in File > Export. You can test the export result with Google’s Font View app.
