FWIW, you can still use the old style configuration without providing
the XML metrics files. For the Times New Roman font you would do
something like this:
    <font embed-url="path/to/TimesNewRoman.ttf">
      <font-triplet name="TimesNewRoman" style="normal" weight="normal"/>
    <font embed-url="path/to/TimesNewRoman-Italic.ttf">
      <font-triplet name="TimesNewRoman" style="italic" weight="normal"/>
    <font embed-url="path/to/TimesNewRoman-Bold.ttf">
      <font-triplet name="TimesNewRoman" style="normal" weight="bold"/>
    <font embed-url="path/to/TimesNewRoman-BoldItalic.ttf">
      <font-triplet name="TimesNewRoman" style="italic" weight="bold"/>

This method will also work with versions 0.94 and 0.95.
