The FreeType engine is a free and portable font rendering
engine, developed to provide advanced font support for a variety of
platforms and environments. FreeType is a library which can open and
manages font files as well as efficiently load, hint and render
individual glyphs. FreeType is not a font server or a complete
text-rendering library.
This version is compiled with the patented subpixel rendering enabled.
It transparently overrides the system library using

2011-11-17 - Kevin Kofler <> 2.4.4-6
- Add freetype-2.4.4-CVE-2011-3439.patch from Fedora freetype (rh#753837)
2011-10-23 - Kevin Kofler <> 2.4.4-5
- Add freetype-2.4.4-CVE-2011-3256.patch from Fedora freetype (rh#749174)
(Handle some border cases)
2011-07-25 - Kevin Kofler <> 2.4.4-4

2011-03-08 - Kevin Kofler <> 2.4.4-3
- Fix autohinting fallback (rh#547532): Ignore CFF-based OTFs.
2011-02-20 - Kevin Kofler <> 2.4.4-2
- Update the description to reflect that the bytecode interpreter was reenabled
in the stock Fedora freetype, hopefully this time for good (see rh#612395).
- Drop conditionals (again), always build the bytecode interpreter (now also in
Fedora) and subpixel rendering (as that's the only reason to build
freetype-freeworld at all)
- Fall back to autohinting if a TTF/OTF doesn't contain any bytecode (rh#547532,
patch backported from upstream git, also in Fedora freetype)
