CHANGES BETWEEN 2.4.11 and 2.4.12 I. IMPORTANT CHANGES - We have another CFF parsing and hinting engine! Written by Dave Arnold <darnold@adobe.com>, this work has been contributed by Adobe in collaboration with Google. It is vastly superior to the old CFF engine, and it will replace it in the next release. Right now, it is still off by default, and you have to explicitly select it using the new `hinting-engine' property of the cff driver: ... #include FT_MODULE_H #include FT_CFF_DRIVER_H FT_Library library; int engine = FT_CFF_HINTING_ADOBE; ... FT_Property_Set( library, "cff", "hinting-engine", &engine ); The code has a (mature) beta status; we encourage all users to test it and report any problems. In case you want to activate the new CFF engine unconditionally, apply this patch: --- snip --- diff --git a/src/cff/cffobjs.c b/src/cff/cffobjs.c index ebcf189..3f2ce6b 100644 --- a/src/cff/cffobjs.c +++ b/src/cff/cffobjs.c @@ -1056,7 +1056,7 @@ /* set default property values */ - driver->hinting_engine = FT_CFF_HINTING_FREETYPE; + driver->hinting_engine = FT_CFF_HINTING_ADOBE; driver->no_stem_darkening = FALSE; return FT_Err_Ok; --- snip --- - The macro FT_CONFIG_OPTION_OLD_INTERNALS is no longer set by default. In the next release, we will completely remove the associated code. Please update your programs in case you are still using this macro. II. MISCELLANEOUS - The (top-level) `configure' script now respects the MAKE environment variable to specify a `make' binary. For backwards compatibility, GNUMAKE still overrides MAKE, though. - The `ftview' and `ftdiff' demo programs have been redesigned, showing more options permanently on the screen, among other minor improvements. - Using the `H' key, it is now possible to select the CFF engine in both `ftview' and `ftdiff'. - The new command line option `-H' for `ftbench' selects the Adobe CFF engine. - It is now possible to directly select the LCD rendering mode with the keys `A'-`F' in `ftview'. The key mapping for cycling through LCD modes has been changed from `K' and `L' to `k' and `l', and toggling custom LCD filtering is no longer mapped to key `F' but to key `L'. - In `ftdiff', key `x' toggles between layout modes: Either use the advance width (this is new and now the default) or the bounding box information to determine line breaks. - For all demo tools, the new command line option `-v' shows the version. - For the demo tools with a GUI, the new command line options `-w' and `-h' select the width and the height of the output window, respectively. - The `ttdebug' program was broken and has been reactivated. Note that this program is not compiled by default.
