They are not different fonts, they are different versions of the same
font.  The two concepts are not the same and should not be confused.

The fonts were released for Ghostscript; they certainly have the right
to release new versions of the fonts.

Concerns about whether the hints were properly preserved are reasonable,
but complaints that the company responsible for making the fonts available
in the first place accepted new glyphs and released a new version are not.
