2.2.97

Fc-cache sleeps before exiting to ensure filesystem timestamps are well
ordered.

Added Punjai orthography.

The timestamp in fonts.conf is gone now.  Too many problems.

The default font path includes all of the X fonts; use selectfont/rejectfont
to eliminate bitmaps, as shown in the sample local.conf file.

<include> configuration elements may now reference a directory.  Files
in that directory matching [0-9]* are loaded in UTF-8 collating sequence order.

<selectfont> configuration added to control which fonts are used.

fontformat font pattern elements built from the FT_Get_X11_Font_Format
function in newer versions of FreeType.

'capability' list constructed from gsub/gpos and silf values in TrueType
files.

Multi-lingual names (style, family, fullname) extracted and stored with
parallel <foo>lang properties marking language.

2.2.96

Fix FcConfigUpToDate to actually check all font directories and eliminate
a typo which completely prevented it from working (Lubos Lunak
<l.lunak@suse.cz>)

Remove comma at end of FcResult enum definition for picky compilers.

2.2.95

Add FcResultOutOfMemory so FcFontSetMatch can return accurate error.

Replace MIN/MAX/ABS macros which happened to be in old FreeType releases
with FC_MIN/FC_MAX/FC_ABS macros owned by fontconfig.

2.2.94

The 2.2.93 release was prepared with a broken libtool which created
the shared library without the '.so' in the file names.

2.2.93

This is the third prerelease of fontconfig 2.3.  Significant changes from
2.2.92 are:

 o	Use new FreeType #include syntax
 o	use y_ppem field instead of 'height' in bitmap sizes rec -
 	FreeType changed the semantics.  Still uses height for
	older versions of FreeType
 o	Don't construct program manuals unless docbook is available

2.2.92

 o	make distcheck work

2.2.91

 o	Switch to SGML manuals
 o	Add FC_DUAL width spacing value
 o	Add FcFini to close out fontconfig and release all memory

This is the third public release of fontconfig, a font configuration and
76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84
customization library.  Fontconfig is designed to locate fonts within the
system and select them according to requirements specified by applications.

Fontconfig is not a rasterization library, nor does it impose a particular
rasterization library on the application.  The X-specific library
'Xft' uses fontconfig along with freetype to specify and rasterize fonts.
