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'. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Copyright 2011 by David Turner, Robert Wilhelm, and Werner Lemberg.
