CHANGES BETWEEN 2.4.5 and 2.4.6 I. IMPORTANT BUG FIXES - For TrueType based fonts, the ascender and descender values were incorrect sometimes (off by a pixel if the ppem value was not a multiple of 5). Depending on the use you might now experience a different layout; the change should result in better, more consistent line spacing. - Fix CVE-2011-0226 which causes a vulnerability while handling Type 1 fonts. - BDF fonts containing glyphs with negative values for ENCODING were incorrectly rejected. This bug has been introduced in FreeType version 2.2.0. - David Bevan contributed a major revision of the FreeType stroker code: . The behaviour of FT_STROKER_LINEJOIN_BEVEL has been corrected. . A new line join style, FT_STROKER_LINEJOIN_MITER_FIXED, has been introduced to support PostScript and PDF miter joins. . FT_STROKER_LINEJOIN_MITER_VARIABLE has been introduced as an alias for FT_STROKER_LINEJOIN_MITER. . Various stroking glitches has been fixed. II. MISCELLANEOUS - SFNT bitmap fonts which contain an outline glyph for `.notdef' only no longer set the FT_FACE_FLAG_SCALABLE flag. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Copyright 2000-2011 by David Turner, Robert Wilhelm, and Werner Lemberg.
