LATEST CHANGES BETWEEN 2.0.7 and 2.0.6
I. IMPORTANT BUG FIXES
- Fixed two bugs in the Type 1 font driver. The first one resulted in a
memory leak in subtle cases. The other one caused FreeType to crash when
trying to load ".gsf" files (Ghostscript so-called Postscript fonts)
(this made _many_ KDE application crash on certain systems. FreeType
_is_ becoming a critical system component on Linux :-)
- Fixed a memory leak in the CFF font driver
- Fixed a memory leak in the PCF font driver
- Fixed the Visual C++ project file "builds/win32/visualc/freetype.dsp"
since it didn't include the Postscript hinter component, causing
errors at build time..
- Fixed a small rendering bug in the anti-aliased renderer that only
occured when tryong to draw thin (less than 1 pixel) strokes..
- Fixed "builds/unix/freetype2.a4" which is used to generate
a valid "freetype2.m4" for Autoconf use
- Fixed the OpenVMS Makefiles
II. MISCELLANEOUS
- added "configure" and "install" scripts to the top-level directory.
a GNU-style installation is thus now easily possible with
./configure <options>
make
make install
