ttfautohint 1.00rc1 ------------------- by Werner Lemberg <wl@gnu.org> This project provides a library which takes a TrueType font as the input, removes its bytecode instructions (if any), and returns a new font where all glyphs are bytecode hinted using the information given by FreeType's auto-hinting module. The idea is to provide the excellent quality of the auto-hinter on platforms which don't use FreeType. The library has a single API function, `TTF_autohint'; see `lib/ttfautohint.h' for a detailed description. Note that the library itself won't get installed currently. A command-line interface to the library is the `ttfautohint' program; after compilation and installation, say ttfautohint --help for usage information, or say man ttfautohint to read its manual page. A GUI to the library is `ttfautohintGUI'; it uses the Qt4 framework. The compilation of this application can be disabled with the `--without-qt' option of the `configure' script. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- New in 1.00rc1: * OpenType feature support. ttfautohint now uses the HarfBuzz library to analyze data from the `GSUB' table. This allows the hinting of glyphs that don't have an entry in a font's `cmap' table, for example superscripts or small caps. Related to this, the new option `--default-script' controls the default (fallback) script used for OpenType features. * More than a single standard character is used. For example, the `latin' script uses characters `o', `O', and digit `0'. This improves the hinting of fonts (and features) that have only a partial coverage of a script's character repertoire. * Much better GDI ClearType hinting in the range 30-80ppem (approx.), avoiding overly flat tops and bottoms of round glyphs. * Better handling of non-square pixels (this is, horizontal and vertical resolutions differ) in the created TrueType bytecode.
