CHANGES BETWEEN 2.4.4 and 2.4.5

  I. IMPORTANT BUG FIXES

    - A rendering regression  for second-order Bézier curves  has been
      fixed, introduced in 2.4.3.


  II. IMPORTANT CHANGES

    - If autohinting  is not  explicitly disabled,  FreeType now  uses
      the autohinter if  a TrueType based font doesn't  contain native
      hints.

    - The load flag FT_LOAD_IGNORE_GLOBAL_ADVANCE_WIDTH  has been made
      redundant and  is simply ignored;  this means that FreeType  now
      ignores the global advance width value in TrueType fonts.


  III. MISCELLANEOUS

    - `FT_Sfnt_Table_Info' can now return the number of SFNT tables of
      a font.

    - Support for PCF files compressed with bzip2 has been contributed
      by Joel  Klinghed.  To  make this  work, the  OS must  provide a
      bzip2 library.

    - Bradley  Grainger  contributed  project  and  solution  files in
      Visual Studio 2010 format.

    - Again some fixes to better handle broken fonts.

    - Some improvements to the B/W rasterizer.

    - Fixes to the cache module to improve robustness.

    - Just  Fill Bugs contributed (experimental) code to compute  blue
      zones for CJK Ideographs, improving the alignment of  horizontal
      stems at the top or bottom edges.

    - The `ftgrid' demo program  can now display  autohinter segments,
      to be toggled on and off with key `s'.
