I made separate version for my purpose because further versions were rendering cyrillic fonts worse in my opinion. If I remember, I reported it to upstream with issue closed as notabug.

@FabioLolix I don't know the details but it's not too hard to guess. Fonts often introduce metrics changes that make backwards incomparability. If you have typeset something in an old version and want it to keep working without breaking your layout you need to stick to the same font version. If you just use fonts for generic new things all the time this isn't a problem, nor is it common with system standard fonts that have a goal of keeping metric compatibility.

I don't know if this has a use for anyone still but with the community package being newer and lots of packages that use Catarell it probably had a good reason to exist.
