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)

of memory footprints and possible leaks will be displayed.
This works transparently with _any_ program that uses FreeType.

However, you will need a lot of memory to use this (allocated blocks
are never released to the heap to detect double deletes easily).

III. MISCELLANEOUS
- We are aware of subtle differences between the output of FreeType

versions 1 and 2 when it comes to monochrome TrueType-hinted glyphs.
These are most probably due to small differences in the monochrome
rasterizers and will be worked out in an upcoming release.
- We have decided to fork the sources in a "stable" branch, and an
"unstable" one, since FreeType is becoming a critical component of
many Unix systems.
The next bug-fix releases of the library will be named 2.0.7, 2.0.8,
etc., while the "2.1" branch will contain a version of the sources
where we will start major reworking of the library's internals, in
order to produce FreeType 2.2.0 (or even 3.0) in a more distant
future.
We also hope that this scheme will allow much more frequent releases
than in the past.
