ttfautohint 1.1 --------------- by Werner Lemberg <> 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 1.1: * Support for the Devanagari script. * Bug fixes in the computation of strong stem widths. GDI hinting now gives much more consistent results. * Better recognition of script coverage: ttfautohint now properly scans composite glyphs to cover components also. * Improved glyph shape analysis: Non-flat local extrema are now recognized more reliably, and stem detection works better.
