FreeType is written in C. It is designed to be small, efficient, and highly customizable while capable of producing high-quality output (glyph images) of most vector and bitmap font formats for digital typography. FreeType is a freely available and portable software library to render fonts.

CHANGES BETWEEN 2.4.8 and 2.4.9


    - Another round of fixes to better handle invalid fonts.   Many of
      them are vulnerabilities  (see CVE-2012-1126 up to CVE-2012-1144
      and SA48320) so all users should upgrade.


    - The `ENCODING -1 <n>' format of BDF fonts is now supported.

    - For BDF fonts,  support for the whole Unicode encoding range has
      been added.

    - Better TTF support for x_ppem != y_ppem.

    - `FT_Get_Advances' sometimes returned bogus values.

    - The  demo  programs  no  longer  recognize  and  handle  default
      suffixes; you now have to always specify the complete font name.

    - Better rendering and LCD mode cycling added to ftview.
