Xft version 2.1 is the first stand alone release of Xft, a library that
connects X applications with the FreeType font rasterization library. Xft
uses fontconfig to locate fonts so it has no configuration files.

Version 2.1.13

Fix hashing in 64-bit versions.  Register objects with freetype.

Version 2.1.12

Fix exporting of XftNameUnparse function.

Version 2.1.9

doesn't).

Avoid crashing when using FT_Face objects.

Version 2.1.6

Deal with broken FreeType 2.1.7 BDF/PCF loaders by trying both y_ppem/x_ppem
and width/height values.

Version 2.1.5

Left some #warnings from testing in the 2.1.4 release.  Spin again.

Version 2.1.4

Work with older versions of Fontconfig by using various pattern elements
only when defined.

Version 2.1.3

Change Freetype includes to new syntax.

Search for nearest bitmap for bitmap-only fonts.

Support fontconfig 2.2 release which doesn't include FC_HINT_STYLE.
