It was released with patent announcement as part of
http://code.google.com/p/sfntly/ :-)

"Today, we are also releasing an implementation of MicroType Express
compression as part of the Embedded OpenType converter in the
open-source sfntly library, adding to the existing WOFF compression.
The sfntly library, developed by the Google Internationalization
Engineering team, serves as the core conversion engine in Google Web
Fonts for subsetting, hint stripping, and related functions of our
dynamic serving path. We hope that all web font services, as well as
people hosting their own web fonts, will use sfntly to optimize font
serving across the web."
