Tarballs are now using xz compression.

CHANGES BETWEEN 2.10.0 and 2.10.1

  • The bytecode hinting of OpenType variation fonts was flawed, since the data in the `CVAR' table wasn't correctly applied.
  • Auto-hinter support for Mongolian.
  • For distribution, .tar.bz2' packages are replaced with .tar.xz' bundles.
  • The handling of the default character in PCF fonts as introduced in version 2.10.0 was partially broken, causing premature abortion of charmap iteration for many fonts.
  • If `FT_Set_Named_Instance' was called with the same arguments twice in a row, the function returned an incorrect error code the second time.
  • Direct rendering using FT_RASTER_FLAG_DIRECT crashed (bug introduced in version 2.10.0).
  • Increased precision while computing OpenType font variation instances.
  • The flattening algorithm of cubic Bezier curves was slightly changed to make it faster. This can cause very subtle rendering changes, which aren't noticeable by the eye, however.
  • The auto-hinter now disables hinting if there are blue zones defined for a `style' (i.e., a certain combination of a script and its related typographic features) but the font doesn't contain any characters needed to set up at least one blue zone.
  • The `ftmulti' demo program now supports multiple hidden axes with the same name tag.
  • ftview', ftstring', and ftgrid' got a -k' command line option to emulate a sequence of keystrokes at start-up.
  • ftview', ftstring', and `ftgrid' now support screen dumping to a PNG file.
  • The bytecode debugger, `ttdebug', now supports variation TrueType fonts; a variation font instance can be selected with the new `-d' command line option.
