* Sat Jan 03 2015
  - Update to version 2.5.5
    - Handling of  uncompressed PCF files works again (bug
      introduced in version 2.5.4).
  - Drop freetype2-2.5.3-fix-pcf.patch, merged upstream
* Mon Dec 08 2014
  - Update to version 2.5.4
    - A variant of vulnerability CVE-2014-2240 was identified
      (cf. and fixed
      in  the new CFF driver.  All users should upgrade.
    - The new auto-hinter code using HarfBuzz crashed for some
      invalid fonts.
    - Many fixes to better protect against malformed input.
    - Full auto-hinter support of the Devanagari script.
    - Experimental auto-hinter support of the Telugu script.
    - CFF stem darkening behaviour can now be controlled at
      build time using the eight macros
    - Some fields in the `FT_Bitmap'  structure have been changed
      from signed to unsigned type, which better reflects
      the actual usage. It is also an additional means to
      protect against malformed input. This change doesn't break
      the ABI; however, it might cause compiler warnings.
    - Improvements to  the auto-hinter's algorithm to recognize
      stems and local extrema.
    - Function `FT_Get_SubGlyph_Info' always returned an error
      even in case of success.
    - Version  2.5.1 introduced major bugs in the cjk part of
      the auto-hinter, which are now fixed.
    - The `FT_Sfnt_Tag' enumeration values have been changed to
      uppercase,  e.g.  `FT_SFNT_HEAD'. The lowercase variants
      are deprecated. This is for orthogonality with all other
      enumeration (and enumeration-like) values in FreeType.
    - `cmake' now supports builds of FreeType as an OS X framework
      and for iOS.
    - Improved project files for vc2010,
      introducing a property file
    - The documentation generator for the API reference has been
      updated to produce  better HTML code (with proper  CSS).
      At the same time, the documentation got a better structure.
    - The FT_LOAD_BITMAP_CROP flag is obsolete; it is not used
      by any driver.
    - The TrueType DELTAP[123] bytecode instructions now work in
      subpixel hinting mode as described in the ClearType
      whitepaper (i.e., for touched points in the
      non-subpixel direction).
    - Many small improvements to the internal arithmetic routines.
  - Rebase don-t-mark-libpng-as-required-library.patch,
    bugzilla-308961-cmex-workaround.patch, freetype2-subpixel.patch,
    freetype2-bitmap-foundry.patch and overflow.patch
  - Add freetype2-2.5.3-fix-pcf.patch from upstream to resolve, "Freetype 2.5.4 does not
    load ungzipped PCF fonts"
* Wed May 07 2014
  - mark bnc628213_test.otf as NoSource to avoid triggering
    clamav check
* Thu Mar 13 2014
  - Improve don-t-mark-libpng-as-required-library.patch: also handle
    Requires.private case (freetype does not include png headers)
* Sun Mar 09 2014
  - Update to version 2.5.3
    - A vulnerability was  identified and fixed in the  new CFF
      driver (cf.;  it
      doesn't have a CVE number yet).  All users should upgrade.
    - More  bug  fixes related  to  correct  positioning of
      composite glyphs.
    - Many fixes to better protect against malformed input.
    - FreeType can now use the HarfBuzz library to greatly improve
      the auto-hinting of  fonts that  use OpenType features:
      Many glyphs that are part  of such features but don't have
      cmap entries are now handled  properly, for  example small
      caps or superscripts. Define the configuration  macro
      FT_CONFIG_OPTION_USE_HARFBUZZ to activate HarfBuzz support.
      You need HarfBuzz version 0.9.19 or newer. Note that HarfBuzz
      depends on  FreeType; this currently causes a chicken-and-egg
      problem  that can be  solved as follows  in case HarfBuzz
      is not yet installed on your system.
      1. Compile  and  install  FreeType without the configuration
      2. Compile and install HarfBuzz.
      3. Define  macro  FT_CONFIG_OPTION_USE_HARFBUZZ, then
      compile and install FreeType again.
      With FreeType's  `configure' script the procedure  boils
      down to configure, build, and install Freetype, then
      configure, compile, and  install  HarfBuzz,  then configure,
      compile,  and  install FreeType again (after executing
      `make distclean').
    - All  libraries FreeType  depends on  are now  checked
      using  the `pkg-config' configuration files  first,
      followed by alternative methods.
    - The  new  value  `auto'  for the  various  `--with-XXX'
      library options   (for   example   `--with-harfbuzz=auto')
      makes   the `configure' script automatically link to the
      libraries it finds. This is now the default.
    - In case FreeType's `configure' script  can't find a
      library, you can  pass environment  variables to  circumvent
      pkg-config,  and those variables  have been  harmonized as
      a consequence  of the changes mentioned above:
      LIBZ           -> removed; use LIBZ_CFLAGS and LIBZ_LIBS
      LIBBZ2         -> removed; use BZIP2_CFLAGS and BZIP2_LIBS
      `./configure --help' shows all available environment variables.
    - The `freetype-config'  script now understands
      option `--static' to emit static linking information.
  - Due to buildsystem changes, rename and rebase
    don-t-mark-libpng-as-required-library-in-freetype-co.patch to
* Thu Dec 12 2013
  - Added patches:
    * don-t-mark-libpng-as-required-library-in-freetype-co.patch: it's
      private in pkgconfig file, and causes issues in downstream
  - As per patch, remove libpng-devel Requires from devel package
* Wed Dec 11 2013
  - freetype2 pkgconfig now includes -lpng16; make sure freetype2-devel
    Requires libpng-devel
* Tue Dec 10 2013
  - Update to version 2.5.2
    * Fixed bug  that made  FreeType crash  on some  popular (but  not
      fully conformant) fonts like `ahronbd.ttf'
    * Another round of improvements to correct positioning and hinting
      of composite glyphs in TrueType fonts
    * Fixed bug introduced in version  2.5.1: handling embedded
      bitmap strikes of  TrueType fonts, caused garbage display
      under some circumstances
    * Fixed `ftgrid' demo program compilation in non-development
  - Droped fix-compile-in-non-debug.patch, included in this release
* Wed Nov 27 2013
  - Update to version 2.5.1
    * For  some WinFNT  files,  the last  glyph  wasn't displayed  but
      incorrectly marked as invalid.
    * The vertical size of glyphs was  incorrectly set after a call to
      `FT_GlyphSlot_Embolden', resulting in clipped glyphs.
    * Many fields of the `PCLT' table in SFNT based fonts (if accessed
      with `FT_Get_Sfnt_Table') were computed incorrectly.
    * In TrueType fonts,  hinting of composite glyphs  could sometimes
      deliver  incorrect positions  of  components or  even  distorted
    * WOFF font format support has been added.
    * The auto-hinter now supports Hebrew.  Greek and Cyrillic support
      has been improved.
    * Support for the forthcoming `OS/2'  SFNT table version 5, as can
      be found e.g. in the `Sitka' font family for Windows 8.1.
    * The header  file layout  has been changed.   After installation,
      all files are now located in `<prefix>/include/freetype2'.
      Applications  that  use   (a)  `freetype-config'  or  FreeType's
      `pkg-config' file to get the include directory for the compiler,
      and (b) the documented way for header inclusion like
      [#]include <ft2build.h> or #include FT_FREETYPE_H
      don't need any change to the source code.
    * The stem  darkening feature  of the  new CFF  engine can  now be
      fine-tuned with the new `darkening-parameters' property.
    * `ftgrid' has been updated to toggle various engines with the `H'
      key, similar to `ftview' and `ftdiff'.
    * The functionality of `ttdebug' has been greatly enhanced.
    . It now displays twilight, storage, and control value data; key
    * Better support of ARMv7 and x86_64 processors.
    * Apple's `sbix' color bitmap format is now supported.
    * Improved   auto-hinter  rendering   for  many   TrueType  fonts,
      especially in the range 20-40ppem.
    * A  new face  flag  `FT_FACE_FLAG_COLOR' has  been  added (to  be
      accessed with the macro `FT_HAS_COLOR').
    * `FT_Gzip_Uncompress'   (modeled    after   zlib's   `uncompress'
      function)  has been  added; this  is a  by-product of  the newly
      added WOFF support.
    * Support for  a build with  `cmake' has been contributed  by John
      Cary <>.
    * Support for x64  builds with Visual C++ has  been contributed by
      Kenneth Miller <>
    * Manual pages for most demo programs have been added.
    * The GETINFO bytecode instruction for TrueType fonts was buggy if
      used to retrieve subpixel hinting information.  It was necessary
      to set  selector bit 6  to get  results for selector  bits 7-10,
      which is wrong.
    * Improved computation  of emulated vertical metrics  for TrueType
    * Fixed horizontal start-up position of vertical phantom points in
      TrueType bytecode.
  - Rebase freetype2-subpixel.patch to current release
  - Added fix-compile-in-non-debug.patch, fixes release build of ftdemos

  - Update to version 2.5.0
    * ftview has been updated to  support color embedded bitmaps.
    * The 'ttdebug' program has been further improved.  In particular,
      it accepts a new command line  option `-H' to select the hinting
* Wed Jun 12 2013
  - Add conflict to package dtc for /usr/bin/ftdump as the two tools
    are different,
    dtc:      ftdump -- Flat Tree dumping utility
    ft2demos: ftdump -- Simple font dumper
* Fri May 10 2013
  - Update to version 2.4.12
    * Using the `H'  key, it is now possible to  select the CFF engine
      in both ftview and ftdiff.
    * The new command line option '-H' for `ftbench' selects the Adobe
      CFF engine.
    * It is  now possible  to directly select  the LCD  rendering mode
      with the keys 'A'-'F' in  'ftview'.  The key mapping for cycling
      through LCD modes  has been changed from 'K' and  'L' to 'k' and
      'l', and  toggling custom LCD  filtering is no longer  mapped to
      key 'F' but to key 'L'.
    * In `ftdiff',  key 'x' toggles  between layout modes:  Either use
      the  advance width  (this is  new and  now the  default) or  the
      bounding box information to determine line breaks.
    * For all demo  tools, the new command line option  `-v' shows the
    * For the demo tools with a GUI, the new command line options '-w'
      and '-h' select  the width and the height of  the output window,
