CHANGES BETWEEN 2.5.3 and 2.5.4 I. IMPORTANT BUG FIXES - A variant of vulnerability CVE-2014-2240 was identified (cf. http://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/?43661) and fixed in the new CFF driver. All users should upgrade. - The new auto-hinter code using HarfBuzz crashed for some invalid fonts. - Many fixes to better protect against malformed input. II. IMPORTANT CHANGES - Full auto-hinter support of the Devanagari script. - Experimental auto-hinter support of the Telugu script. - CFF stem darkening behaviour can now be controlled at build time using the eight macros CFF_CONFIG_OPTION_DARKENING_PARAMETER_{X,Y}{1,2,3,4} . - Some fields in the `FT_Bitmap' structure have been changed from signed to unsigned type, which better reflects the actual usage. It is also an additional means to protect against malformed input. This change doesn't break the ABI; however, it might cause compiler warnings. III. MISCELLANEOUS - Improvements to the auto-hinter's algorithm to recognize stems and local extrema. - Function `FT_Get_SubGlyph_Info' always returned an error even in case of success. - Version 2.5.1 introduced major bugs in the cjk part of the auto-hinter, which are now fixed. - The `FT_Sfnt_Tag' enumeration values have been changed to uppercase, e.g. `FT_SFNT_HEAD'. The lowercase variants are deprecated. This is for orthogonality with all other enumeration (and enumeration-like) values in FreeType. - `cmake' now supports builds of FreeType as an OS X framework and for iOS. - Improved project files for vc2010, introducing a property file. - The documentation generator for the API reference has been updated to produce better HTML code (with proper CSS). At the same time, the documentation got a better structure. - The FT_LOAD_BITMAP_CROP flag is obsolete; it is not used by any driver. - The TrueType DELTAP[123] bytecode instructions now work in subpixel hinting mode as described in the ClearType whitepaper (i.e., for touched points in the non-subpixel direction). - Many small improvements to the internal arithmetic routines.
