* Fri Jul 23 2021 Ismail Dönmez <>
  - Update to version 2.11.0
    * A new demo program `ftsdf` is available to display Signed Distance
      Fields of glyphs.
    * The `ftlint` demo program has been  extended to do more testing of
      its input.
    * The `ttdebug` demo program didn't show changed point coordinates
      (bug introduced in version 2.10.3).
    * It is now possible to adjust the axis increment for variable fonts
      in the `ftmulti` demo program.
    * It is now possible to change the hinting engine in the `ftstring`
      demo program.
    * The graphical demo programs work better now in native color depth
      on win32 and x11.
* Tue Oct 20 2020 Ismail Dönmez <>
  - Update to version 2.10.4
    * In  `ftview', custom  LCD  filter values  are  now normalized  and
      balanced.  Unorthodox filters are still available through the `-L'
      command line option.
    * The GUI demo programs can now be resized.
    * Demo programs that accept command  line option `-k' can now handle
      function keys, too.  The  corresponding character codes start with
      0xF1.  As  an example, the  POSIX shell syntax (accepted  by bash,
      ksh, and zsh) -k $'\xF3q' emulates the pressing of function key `F3'
      followed by key `q'.
* Sat May 09 2020 Ismail Dönmez <>
  - Update to version 2.10.2
    * The `ftbench' demo program has a new test for testing the

    * `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.
  - Add tarball signatures and freetype2.keyring
* Mon Jun 24 2019 Ismail Dönmez <>
  - Update to version 2.10.0
    * The  `ftdump' demo  program has new options `-c'  and `-C'  to
      display charmaps in compact and detailed format, respectively.
      Option `-V' has been removed.
    * The `ftview', `ftstring', and `ftgrid' demo programs use a new
      command line option `-d' to specify the program window's width,
      height, and color depth.
    * The `ftview' demo program now displays red boxes for zero-width
    * `ftglyph' has limited support to display fonts with
      color-layered glyphs.This will be improved later on.
    * `ftgrid' can now display bitmap fonts also.
    * The `ttdebug' demo program has a new option `-f' to select a
      member of a TrueType collection (TTC).
    * Other various improvements to the demo programs.
* Thu Feb 07 2019 Marguerite Su <>
  - Remove "Supplements: fonts-config" to avoid accidentally pulling
    in Qt dependencies on some non-Qt based desktops.(boo#1091109)
    fonts-config is fundamental but ft2demos seldom installs by end users.

  - 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

  - 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

  - 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,

    Thanks to Werner Lemberg for fixing and Krzysztof Kotlenga for
    reporting the issue.
* Mon Aug 18 2008
  - fix uninitialized pointer "FT_STREAM stream" in function
    FT_Open_Face() which made fontforge crash while trying to apply
    a workaround to the sazanami-fonts because fontforge called
    FT_Open_Face() with 0 for the FT_Library argument and
    then freetype crashed in FT_Stream_Free().
* Wed Jul 23 2008
  - update to 2.3.7. Extract from the docs/CHANGES file:
    • If the library was compiled on an i386 platform using gcc, and
      compiler option -O3 was given, `FT_MulFix' sometimes returned
      incorrect results which could have caused problems with
      `FT_Request_Metrics' and `FT_Select_Metrics', returning an
      incorrect descender size.
    • Pure CFFs without subfonts were scaled incorrectly if the font
      matrix was non-standard.  This bug has been introduced in
      version 2.3.6.
    • The `style_name' field in the `FT_FaceRec' structure often
      contained a wrong value for Type 1 fonts.  This misbehaviour
      has been introduced in version 2.3.6 while trying to fix
      another problem.  [Note, however, that this value is
      informative only since the used algorithm to extract it is
      very simplistic.]
    • Two new macros, FT_OUTLINE_SMART_DROPOUTS and
      FT_OUTLINE_EXCLUDE_STUBS, have been introduced.  Together with
      FT_OUTLINE_IGNORE_DROPOUTS (which was ignored previously) it is
      now possible to control the dropout mode of the `raster' module
      (for B&W rasterization), using the `flags' field in the
      `FT_Outline' structure.
    • The TrueType bytecode interpreter now passes the dropout mode to
      the B&W rasterizer.  This greatly increases the output for small
      ppem values of many fonts like `pala.ttf'.
    • A bunch of potential security problems have been found.  All
      users should update.
    • Microsoft Unicode cmaps in TrueType fonts are now always
      preferred over Apple cmaps.  This is not a bug per se, but there
      exist some buggy fonts created for MS which have broken Apple
      cmaps.  This affects only the automatic selection of FreeType;
      it's always possible to manually select an Apple Unicode cmap if
    • Many bug fixes to the TrueType bytecode interpreter.
    • Improved Mac support.
    • Subsetted CID-keyed CFFs are now supported correctly.
    • CID-keyed CFFs with subfonts which are scaled in a non-standard
      way are now handled correctly.
    • A call to FT_Open_Face with `face_index' < 0 crashed FreeType if
      the font was a Windows (bitmap) FNT/FON.
    • The new function `FT_Get_CID_Registry_Ordering_Supplement' gives
      access to those fields in a CID-keyed font.  The code has been
      contributed by Derek Clegg.
    • George Williams contributed code to validate the new `MATH'
      OpenType table (within the `otvalid' module).  The `ftvalid'
      demo program has been extended accordingly.
    • An API for cmap 14 support (for Unicode Variant Selectors, UVS)
      has been contributed by George Williams.
    • A new face flag FT_FACE_FLAG_CID_KEYED has been added, together
      with a macro FT_IS_CID_KEYED which evaluates to 1 if the font is
    • Build support for symbian has been contributed.
    • Better WGL4 glyph name support, contributed by Sergey Tolstov.
    • Debugging output of the various FT_TRACEX macros is now sent to
    • The `ftview' demo program now provides artificial slanting too.
    • The `ftvalid' demo program has a new option `-f' to select the
      font index.

    when using the CMEX fonts (by Peng Wu <>).
* Mon Aug 20 2007
  - Commented out NoSource to provide comfortable rebuild.
* Tue Jul 03 2007
  - update to 2.3.5. Extract from the doc/CHANGES file:
    • Some subglyphs in TrueType fonts were handled incorrectly due
    to a missing graphics state reinitialization.
    • Large .Z files  (as distributed with some X11  packages)
      weren't handled correctly, making FreeType increase the heap
      stack in an endless loop.
    • A large number of bugs have been fixed to avoid crashes and
      endless loops with invalid fonts.
    • The two new cache functions  `FTC_ImageCache_LookupScaler' and
      `FTC_SBit_Cache_LookupScaler' have been added to allow lookup of
      glyphs using an  `FTC_Scaler' object;  this makes it possible to
      use fractional pixel sizes in the cache.  The demo programs have
      been updated accordingly to use this feature.
    • A new API  `FT_Get_CMap_Format' has been added to  get the
      cmap format  of a  TrueType font.   This  is useful  in handling
      PDF files. The code has been contributed by Derek Clegg.
    • The  auto-hinter now  produces better output by default for
      non-Latin scripts like Indic.  This was done by using the CJK
      hinting module as the default instead of the Latin one. Thanks
      to Rahul Bhalerao for this suggestion.
    • A new API `FT_Face_CheckTrueTypePatents' has been added to find
      out whether a given TrueType font uses patented bytecode
      instructions.  The `ft2demos' bundle contains a new program
      called `ftpatchk' which demonstrates its usage.
    • A new API `FT_Face_SetUnpatentedHinting' has been added to
      enable or disable the unpatented hinter.
    • Support for Windows FON files in PE format has been contributed
      by Dmitry Timoshkov.
* Mon Jun 04 2007
  -  Bugzilla #275072: (from upstream CVS):
    Check for negative number of points in contours. Problem
    reported by Victor Stinner <>.
* Tue May 22 2007
  - fix last patch to avoid crashes when loader->exec == NULL.
    (caused crashes in xpdf, kpdf, acroread for me for many
    .pdf files).
* Tue Apr 10 2007
  - update to 2.3.4. Extract from the doc/CHANGES file:
    • A serious bug in the handling of bitmap fonts (and bitmap
      strikes of outline fonts) has been introduced in 2.3.3.
    • Remove a serious regression in the TrueType bytecode
      interpreter that was introduced in version 2.3.2.  Note that
      this does not disable the improvements introduced to the
      interpreter in version 2.3.2, only some ill cases that occurred
      with certain fonts (though a few popular ones).
    • The auto-hinter now ignores single-point contours for
      computing blue zones.  This bug created `wavy' baselines when
      rendering text with various fonts that use these contours to
      model mark-attach points (these are points that are never
      rasterized and are placed outside of the glyph's real
    • The `rsb_delta' and `lsb_delta' glyph slot fields are now set
      to 0 for mono-spaced fonts.  Otherwise code that uses them
      would essentially ruin the fixed-advance property.
    • Fix CVE-2007-1351 which can cause an integer overflow while
      parsing BDF fonts, leading to a potentially exploitable heap
      overflow condition.
    • FreeType returned incorrect kerning information from TrueType
      fonts when the bytecode interpreter was enabled.  This
      happened due to a typo introduced in version 2.3.0.
    • Negative kerning values from PFM files are now reported
      correctly (they were read as 16-bit unsigned values from the
    • Fixed a small memory leak when `FT_Init_FreeType' failed for
      some reason.
    • The Postscript hinter placed and sized very thin and ghost
      stems incorrectly.
    • The TrueType bytecode interpreter has been fixed to get rid
      of most of the rare differences seen in comparison to the
      Windows font loader.
    • A new demo program `ftdiff' has been added to compare
      TrueType hinting, FreeType's auto hinting, and rendering
      without hinting in three columns.
    • The auto-hinter now better deals with serifs and corner cases
      (e.g., glyph '9' in Arial at 9pt, 96dpi).  It also improves
      spacing adjustments and doesn't change widths for non-spacing
* Wed Mar 28 2007
  - Bugzilla #258335: fix buffer overflow in handling of bdf fonts.
* Mon Feb 05 2007
  - update to 2.3.1.
    • The TrueType interpreter sometimes returned incorrect
      horizontal metrics due to a bug in the handling of the SHZ
    • A typo  in  a  security  check  introduced  after
      version 2.2.1 prevented FreeType to render some glyphs in CFF
* Sun Jan 21 2007
  - update to 2.3.0 (from rc1 to final release)

* Tue Mar 14 2006
  - Bugzilla #157441: FZSongTi.ttf contains a lot more (CJK)-glyphs
    than most other fonts, therefore we have to expand the cjk range
    in Takashi Iwai's "ft2-autofit-02-cjk.diff" to render these
    glyphs correctly as well.

* Tue Jul 12 2005
  - update to 2.1.10.
    + fixes serious bug introduced in 2.1.8 which caused many
      distortions for TrueType fonts
    + amount of heap memory used is drastically reduced
    For more details see /usr/share/doc/packages/freetype2/CHANGES.
  - disable freetype-autohint-cjkfonts.patch for the moment, the
    auto-hinter has been replaced with a new module called the
    'auto-fitter' which is "prepared better to support non-latin1
    scripts in next releases". Currently the rendering quality of
    CJK fonts seems to have suffered though compared to 2.1.9
    with the freetype-autohint-cjkfonts.patch.

  - Bugzilla #38205:
    add patch from
    to improve the hinting results (mainly for CJK fonts).
* Wed Mar 24 2004
  - Add ft2-stream-compat.diff for binary compatibility when
    upgrading from SLES8 to SLES9.
    The FT_Stream functions have been renamed and although these
    functions were declared for internal use only by the freetype
    developers, they have been used in Qt (and possibly elsewhere).
    Therefore, 3rd party which linked statically against Qt might
    not work after upgrading from SLES8 to SLES9.
    Fix this problem with a patch by Kurt Garloff <>
    which defines appropriate weak symbols.
* Tue Mar 16 2004
  - fix Bugzilla# 36143: backport fixes for bitmap font metric issues
    from CVS to fix  crashes when using bitmap fonts caused by the
    new libXft-2.1.5 from the tree.
* Mon Mar 15 2004

    rpm of the main freetype2 package.
* Mon Jan 12 2004
  - add %defattr
* Fri Jan 09 2004
  - add "-fno-strict-aliasing" compile option to prevent crashes
    for example in ftdump and mkfontscale.

    (included upstream).
  - remove gzip-eof.patch.
* Mon Sep 01 2003
  - add gzip-eof.patch to fix the problem that some gzipped bitmap
    fonts could not be opened by freetype2.
    See also:
    and followups.
* Tue Aug 26 2003
  - add freetype2-bitmap-style.patch: check the bdf properties
    WEIGHT_NAME and SLANT case insensitively. Without that,
    these properties are not correctly recognized when the fonts
    specify them in lower case.
* Fri May 16 2003
  - don't install files which will not be packaged.
* Tue Apr 08 2003
  - update to 2.1.4
* Fri Apr 04 2003
  - freetype updated to 2.1.4rc2
* Fri Mar 07 2003
  - Bug #24755: further improvement: add " Wide" to the family name
    for fonts which have an average width >= point size, i.e. fonts
    which have glyphs which are at least square (or maybe even
    wider). This makes fonts which contain only double width
    characters (for example the "misc-fixed" 18x18ja.bdf) clearly
    distinct from single width fonts of the same family and
    avoids that they get accidentally selected via freetype2/Xft2.
* Fri Mar 07 2003
  - Bug #24775: partly fixed by a patch to freetype which returns
    "FOUNDRY FAMILY_NAME" as the family_name for bitmap fonts.
    Without that change, all bitmap fonts which have "Fixed"
    in FAMILY_NAME also had the same family_name "Fixed" via
    freetype/Xft2 and it was not possible to distinguish between
    them, therefore the selection of "Fixed" bitmap fonts produced
    quite surprising results. After this change, the fonts show
    up for example as "Misc Fixed", "Etl Fixed", etc. via
    freetype2/Xft2, which makes it easy to select the right one.
* Wed Jan 29 2003
  - add freetype2-bc.patch
* Sat Jan 25 2003
  - use the original names for the utilities, i.e. ftdump
    instead of ft2dump, etc. ... (I renamed the utilities
    in freetype1 to ft1dump, ft1view, etc. ...
* Mon Jan 13 2003
  - new package ft2demos, version 2.1.3
