CHANGES BETWEEN 2.4.10 and 2.4.11
 
I. IMPORTANT BUG FIXES
 
- Some vulnerabilities in the BDF implementation have been fixed.
 Users of this font format should upgrade.
 

II. IMPORTANT CHANGES
 
- Subpixel hinting support has been contributed by Infinality,
 based on Greg Hitchcock's whitepaper at
 
http://www.microsoft.com/typography/...cleartype.aspx
 
Originally, it was a separate patch available from
 
http://www.infinality.net/blog/
 
and which has been integrated.
 
Note that ClearType support is not completely implemented! In
 particular, full support for the options `compatible_widths',
 `symmetrical_smoothing, and `bgr' (via the GETINFO bytecode
 instruction) is missing.
 
Activation of subpixel hinting support can be controlled with
 the `TT_CONFIG_OPTION_SUBPIXEL_HINTING' configuration option; it
 is switched off by default. This feature is still experimental;
 we welcome test reports!
 
- Support for OpenType collections (OTC) has been added.
 
- Pure CFF fonts within an SFNT wrapper are now supported.
 

III. MISCELLANEOUS
 
- Minor rendering improvements to the auto-hinter.
 
- `FT_GlyphSlot_Oblique' now uses a shear angle of 12°.
 
- Experimental support to handle `property modules', for example
 to control the behaviour of the auto-hinter. The API consists
 of two new functions, `FT_Property_Set' and `FT_Property_Get'.
 
The code is still subject to change and should not be used for
 production.
 
- The `ftdiff' demo program now supports UTF-8 encoded input files
 for option `-f'.
 
- Using keys `r' and `R', you can now adjust the stroker radius in
 the `ftview' demo program.
 
- Other, minor fixes and improvements.
