    and Droid sans serif and serif fonts with BCI, even if it means
    thin (sometimes too much, see Liberation Sans 'R') glyphs. It
    should be readable (less blurred). I'll add fontconfig hinting

    * introduced warning -- <alias> should not contain more <family>s
    * introduced warning -- <test> should not contain more values

    "monospace" requested; that causes e. g. gvim displaying glyphs with
    additional space

    in case that someone has deinstalled them but gui or document explicitly
    wants them

      16-suse-hintstyle.conf, so that extra packages may put their
      own autohint value between them.
    * Move suse-bitmaps.conf to conf.d, too
    * Move optional configs modified by fonts-config to fonts-config
      package itself

* Tue Feb 03 2009
  - bnc#468407: add the Arabic font "KacstBook" to the preference
    lists for serif, sans-serif, and monospace. Until now there was
    no font at all preferred for Arabic when the dejavu fonts were

  - update to 2.6.0. Some changes from the ChangeLog:
    • new configurables for sub-pixel filter configuration.
    • Don't check cache file time stamps when cleaning cache dir.
      Cache file mtime is meaningless now that the directory time is
      encoded in
      the cache.
    • Also check configDirs mtimes in FcConfigUptoDate
      Checking only config files and font directories can miss
      changes which affect only a configuration directory. Check
      those to catch any changes.
    • Update CaseFolding.txt to Unicode 5.1.0
  - remove fix-pattern-duplicate.diff (included upstream).
* Tue Aug 26 2008
  - kill "la" files and static libraries
* Mon May 26 2008
  - bnc#246804: remove workaround to force the detection of FreeMono
    as monospace, freefont >= 0.20080323 has the spacing problem
* Wed May 21 2008
  - bnc#378463:
    • accept "Liberation Serif", "Liberation Sans", and
      "Liberation Mono" as fallbacks for "Times New Roman", "Arial",
      and "Courier New" respectively.
    • Mark the "Liberation" fonts with their generics to get
      reasonable fallbacks if they are not installed.
    • Add these fonts to the preference lists (below DejaVu).
* Thu Apr 10 2008
  - added baselibs.conf file to build xxbit packages
    for multilib support
* Tue Dec 18 2007
  - add "Lucida Sans Typewriter", "Lucida Sans", and "Lucida Bright"
    to the list of fonts which should always use the byte code
    interpreter if anti-aliasing is off. Suggested by
    Bernhard Walle <>.
* Tue Oct 16 2007
  - Bugzilla #334154: make "Lohit Punjabi" the default font for
    Punjabi (move ugly FreeSans, FreeSerif, FreeMono down in
    the preference lists to make this possible).
* Tue Oct 16 2007
  - Bugzilla #308961 comment #24: give "AR PL ShanHeiSun Uni" higher
    priority than FZMingTi because the latter one doesn’t have
    embedded bitmaps.
* Mon Oct 15 2007
  - Bugzilla #308961: make "AR PL ShanHeiSun Uni" the default font
    for traditional and simplified Chinese (unless the commercial
    fonts FZ* or CMEX* are installed which still have higher
* Fri Apr 27 2007
  - Add libexpat-devel to BuildRequires.
* Fri Mar 23 2007
  - Bugzilla #118131 comment #93: set the autohinter default
    matching on "font" instead of on "pattern".
    If an autohint value is set in pattern, OpenOffice 2.1 will use
    that even if there are fontconfig rules matching on "font" which
    should override it again). This doesn't cause any problems for
    Cairo/Gnome (see bug #104365) because Cairo/Gnome don't try to
    change the autohint value anyway.
* Mon Mar 12 2007
  - duplicate patterns correctly (fixes some parts of bug #244579
    for Qt4).
    fix-pattern-duplicate.diff (by Stephan Kulow <>).
* Wed Feb 21 2007
  - Bugzilla #246783: avoid crashes when config files contain
    some incorrect expressions.
* Tue Feb 20 2007
  - Bugzilla #246804: force detection of FreeMono as monospace as
    well, recent versions of this font are broken and have glyphs
    with wrong width.
* Tue Feb 20 2007
  - update to 2.4.2.
    + remove do-not-clean-cache-files-for-different-architectures.patch
      (included upstream).
    + remove improve-monospace-detection.patch and fix this in
      the setup instead of in the c-code using the feature
      match target="scan" (see bugzilla #246804).
* Tue Feb 06 2007
  - fix order of changelog entries.
* Wed Jan 24 2007
  - Bugzilla #237347: make Pothana2000 the default font for Telugu.
* Mon Nov 20 2006
  - Meiryo is not good for monospace.
* Wed Nov 15 2006
  - sync hinting and bitmap setup with fonts-config:
    + Bugzilla #215602:  don't use the embedded bitmaps in the IPA
      fonts because they are only available in 12, 14, and 16 pixels.
    + Bugzilla #215602: Don't use the autohinter for fonts where it
      it distorts the metrics so badly that even the digits which
      should be monospaced are not monospaced at all anymore.
    + Don't use the autohinter for good quality TrueType fonts.
  - add some new fonts to the prefer lists.
* Fri Nov 10 2006
  - choose nicer default fonts for sans-serif, serif, and monospace.
    It is not necessary anymore to choose fonts which are metric
    compatible to the Adobe fonts as the default, the bug in kpdf
    is apparently fixed (see Bugzilla #129081). The default fonts
    for all three styles are now Déjà Vu on openSUSE.
* Fri Oct 27 2006
  - make last patch a little bit nicer to get it included upstream.
* Tue Oct 24 2006
  - do not delete cache files for different architectures.
* Fri Oct 20 2006
  - Bugzilla #213616: make suse-font-dirs.conf work again
    by symlinking it into /etc/fonts/conf.d.
* Wed Oct 18 2006
  - Bugzilla #213190, Fate #300430: "Use CMEXSong font as the
    default font for zh_TW locale"
* Mon Oct 16 2006
  - update to 2.4.1.
    + cache files for different architectures are in different
    files now
    + the user specific cache has been split from a single file
      in to seperate files for each font directory which are now
      stored in ~/.fontconfig/.
* Thu Jun 22 2006
  - Bugzilla #185864: add "Requires: bash" to make the postun
    and preun scripts of the SLES9 fontconfig package work.
* Fri Jun 02 2006
  - Bugzilla #179457: fix font handling for wine (from upstream CVS):
    wine uses FcPatternGet instead of FcPatternGetString to find the
    full path name of a font file. This used to work but has been
    broken recently in the fontconfig 2.4 branch.
* Fri Apr 28 2006
  - Bugzilla #104365: match on "pattern" instead on "font" to edit
    the default hinting settings to make it easier to override
    the defaults with applications using FcPatternDel() and
* Wed Apr 19 2006
  - Bugzilla #166260 and bugzilla #162064:
    add "Khmer OS System" to the prefer lists of fontconfig.
* Tue Apr 11 2006
  - Bugzilla #59409: don't set a default value for rgba at all,
    rely on the auto-detection instead. Previously it was impossible
    to switch subpixelhinting off in the KDE control centre if
    it had been switched on by the auto-detection. But in the
    meantime this has been fixed in KDE, therefore we don't have
    a reason anymore to override the auto-detection.
* Tue Apr 04 2006
  - use "OpenSymbol" as another fallback for "Symbol" in addition
    to "Standard Symbols L".
* Mon Apr 03 2006
  - Bugzilla #158573: CID keyed fonts should be blacklisted in the
    fontconfig setup because they don't (yet) work with
* Fri Mar 31 2006
  - Bugzilla #158573:  Hinting will be done before Embolden in
    freetype2, but in such case, Embolden will get wrong result
    on some glyph contours after applying hinting.
    Actually, hinting should be done after embolden, but we can't
    fix it in current freetype2. So as a workaround, just turn off
    hinting if we want to do embolden.
* Fri Mar 24 2006
  - Bugzilla #160226: When alternately starting a 32 bit and 64 bit
    application on a 64 bit system, ~/.fonts.cache-2 was always
    deleted and generated again, which caused a big performance
    issue. ~/.fonts.cache-2 is intended to be multi-arch, but this
    didn't work right.
* Thu Mar 16 2006
  - Bugzilla #130350: I forgot to add the agfa-fonts "Andale Sans",
    "Andy MT", "Bell MT", and "Monotype Sorts" to the list of fonts
    which should always use the byte code interpreter if
    anti-aliasing is off.
* Fri Mar 10 2006
  - update to 2.3.94 (no significant changes, just a nicer
    version number).
  - don't apply fc-verbose.diff anymore, the warnings cause
    too much confusion (see for example bug #156405).
* Fri Feb 24 2006
  - update to fix for Bugzilla #153402 included
* Fri Feb 24 2006
  - fix Bugzilla #153402: "fc-cache crashes on some .ttc fonts".

    + make fontconfig not crash on pango badness.
    + Remove one more archaic character in ka.orth
    + Freeze patterns created by configuration file for tiny
      memory savings (every little bit helps).
  - fix for bugzilla #152453 now included upstream.

  - update to
    + Don't bail if fontconfig can't remove a dir cache file.
    + Skip the ID of a cache file when copying.
    + Eliminate 'source file too small' bug in FcDirCacheWrite.
    + Add -r --really-force option which blows away cache files and
      then regenerates them.
    + Deal correctly with changing FC_CACHE_MAGIC.
    + Enable fc-cat to print out old-style cache info when given a
      directory name.
    + Bump up magic version; we changed the binary format.
    + Fix triggering of segfault caused by misreading cache files
      (reported by fcrozat).
    + Fix the underlying cause of the below segfault (must usually
      call FcDirCacheHasCurrentArch after FcDirCacheValid).
  - Dirk Mueller's make_fccache_f_work.diff is obsolete because of
    the --really-force option.

  - Bugzilla #148361: avoid stat () on all files in all
    sub-directories of font-directories by including a list
    of all font-directores including the sub-directories generated

  - update to
    improved version of seife-crash.diff now included upstream.
* Mon Feb 06 2006
  - fc-loop-scan-fix.diff (by Takashi IWAI <>):
    the endless loop in fc-cache if a subdirectory was a symlink

* Tue Jan 31 2006
  - Patches by Takashi Iwai <>:
  -  fontconfig-misc-warning-fixes.diff (mainly to check return values
    of read (), write (), and seek ()).
  - fontconfig-fontsubdir-parse-fix.diff:
    if FcConfigNormalizeFontDir () was called with a directory
    which is not a subdirectory of a directory from a .conf file,
    the list of all subdirectories was added to the list of known
    directories. When doing this again, the list of subdirectories
    was added again. Takashi's patch fixes this.

  - update to
  - fc-cache-should-not-stop-at-the-first-non-existing-directory.patch,
    included upstream

    something is badly wrong and the file should be destroyed.
* Mon Jan 30 2006

    claims that this problem was fixed, part of the problem still
    remained. "fc-cache /foo/bar" and "fc-cache /foo/bar/" generate
    files with the same name (md5sum) now, the command using the
    final '/' always rewrote the cache even if it was already
* Wed Jan 11 2006
  - update to
  - add full-path-problem.patch to fix the problem that all
    full path names reported by "fc-match -v" and "fc-list : file"
    omit the last directory component which caused all applications
    using fontconfig to crash.
* Mon Jan 09 2006

    the prefer lists: "Frank Ruehl CLM" (serif),
    "Nachlieli CLM" (sans-serif), "Miriam Mono CLM" (monospace).
* Thu Dec 08 2005
  - bitmap-encoding-problem.patch: PCF fonts that have no encoded
    characters must be skipped, they are usually just Unicode fonts
    transcoded to some legacy encoding. Only Unicode and Latin1
    are supported by fontconfig, if such fonts are not skipped they
    can be accidentally matched by fontconfig and used by
    applications. But they don't work, most applications only
    display replacement characters when such fonts are used, some
    even crash (urxvt). Probably fonts that have no encoded
    characters in other formats than PCF are also useless and
    can be skipped as well.

    Helvetica to the top of the prefer list for sans-serif, fonts
    which are metric compatible to Times to the top of the prefer
    list for serif, and fonts which are metric compatible to courier
    to the top of the prefer list for monospace.
    This is needed for example to display pdf documents better in

    the problem mentioned in comment #8.
* Wed Oct 19 2005
  - update to
    + remove fix-return-code.patch (included upstream).
  - Bugzilla #128930: add patch by Zhe Su <> to
    improve support of localized font family and style names by
    sorting them according to the current locale settings.
    With this change, applications which use fontconfig will
    automatically get the localized font family and style names.
* Fri Oct 14 2005
  - the return value of fc-cache in directories where
    fonts.cache-2 doesn't exist was 1. Fix this.
* Thu Oct 13 2005
  - update to
    current head of fontconfig 2.4 branch).
    Fixes problem that fc-cache returns 1 (failed) when updating
    an already existing fonts.cache-2 file.
* Wed Oct 12 2005
  - update to
    (current head of fontconfig 2.4 branch).
    Solves the performance regression problem that fc-cache
    did take a lot of time even when nothing was changed in the
    font directories.
* Fri Oct 07 2005
  - update to
    (current head of fontconfig 2.4 branch).

    cairo. Thanks to Zhe Su <>.
* Fri Sep 09 2005
  - Bugzilla #114949 comment #20 - #21: add a rule to
    suse-post-user.conf to switch off the autohinter for the webfonts
    and the agfa-fonts if anti-aliasing is already off.
    This nice idea came from Sven Burmeister.
* Thu Sep 08 2005
  - Bugzilla #114949: remove stuff from /etc/fonts/*.conf which
    has become obsolete. Rules to replace outline fonts with
    bitmap fonts are not necessary anymore if fonts are available
    which can achieve rendering quality equal to hand tuned
    bitmaps when the byte code interpreter is used.
* Fri Sep 02 2005
  - Bugzilla #114949: move the rules to setup the hinting and
    anti-aliasing and the rules to enable embedded bitmaps from
    suse-pre-user.conf into seperate files and include these
    from suse-pre-user.conf. This makes it easier to edit or replace
    these rules with SuSEconfig.fonts according to values of
    variables in /etc/sysconfig.
* Sat Aug 20 2005
  - Bugzilla #105990: switch on embedded bitmaps again during
    the installation.
* Fri Aug 19 2005
  - Bugzilla #105626: work around the loss of rendering quality
    for the IPA fonts caused by the update to freetype 2.1.10 by
    switching off the hinting for the IPA fonts.

  - Bugzilla #102328: use Keith Packard's fix for the problem in
    the last changelog.
* Tue Aug 16 2005
  - Bugzilla #102328: fall back to POSIX if the effective value
    of LC_CTYPE is the empty string "". By falling back to POSIX
    here we make sure that even in this case fontconfig matches
    something readable. Without that it apparently matches completely
    random and might match a font which doesn't even have ASCII
    glyphs. As a result, nothing at all may be displayed.
* Fri Jul 29 2005
  - Revert the defaults in /etc/fonts/suse-pre-user.conf to use
    the autohinter and anti-aliasing by default always. Most users
    apparently do not like the bitmap look and feel caused by the
    last change. As this seems to be a matter of taste, I leave the
    rule to achieve that bitmap look and feel in
    /etc/fonts/suse-pre-user.conf as an example but disable it by
    default. Users who want a bitmap look and feel have to copy
    that rule to their personal ~/.fonts.conf file and enable it
    by choosing a non-zero pixelsize limit as explained in
    the comments in /etc/fonts/suse-pre-user.conf.
* Fri Jul 22 2005
  - Bugzilla #64424: "Bytecodeinterpreter in freetype2 - wieso
    The byte code interpreter is enabled now at build time in our
    freetype2 package. Setup the defaults in /etc/fonts to use
    black and white rendering (antialias=false) and the byte code
    interpreter (autohint=false) for a few fonts which are known to
    have high quality byte code instructions. Set antialias=true
    and autohint=true as the default for all other fonts.
* Thu Jul 21 2005
  - update to
  - Bugzilla #52167: "fc-list reports inconsistent spacing values
    for some fonts": add a patch to improve the detection of
    monospaced fonts: ignore glyphs with advance=0 when detecting
    monospaced fonts and add a special exception for "Luxi Mono"
    and "Nimbus Mono L".
* Wed Jul 20 2005
  - Bugzilla #94110: add more directories to the default font path.
* Tue Jul 12 2005
  - update to
    + remove ka.orth.patch, now included.
* Wed Jun 29 2005
  - Added expat to fontconfig-devel to make the .la checker easier.
* Fri May 20 2005
  - Fix ka.orth (Georgian), it apparently requires too many
    characters which are not really used for Georgian.
  - Add BPG fonts (for Georgian) to the preference lists.
* Thu Mar 17 2005
  - add Sazanami and IPA fonts to suse-generic-names.conf.
* Fri Mar 11 2005
  - Bugzilla #66498 again: the last change wasn't a good idea after
    all. The design of the embedded bitmaps is quite bad in some
    sizes, especially the Japanese katakana look extremely ugly.
    Therefore it is better not to use the embedded bitmaps during
    the installation. I added a special /etc/fonts/local.conf.instsys
    file which should be copied to /etc/fonts/local.conf only for
    the installation and which is not used in the installed system.
* Thu Mar 03 2005
  - Bugzilla #66498: use embedded bitmaps for Korean and Japanese
    as well, not only for Chinese as before to get readable Japanese
    and Chinese during the installation. The Latin fonts we currently
    use during the installation are smaller as before. With the
    Gnu Unifont currently used for CJK, this leads to clipping
    problems because this bitmap font cannot scale to a smaller size.
    When using TrueType fonts like FZSongTi for CJK, the clipping
    problems disappear because the font can scale down. But in such
    a tiny size, Japanese or Chinese is almost unreadable with
    Anti-Aliasing. It's better readable with the embedded bitmaps.
* Mon Feb 21 2005
  - re-enable bitmap fonts.
* Fri Feb 18 2005
  - update to
* Tue Feb 01 2005
  - package now adds -fno-strict-aliasing by itself.
  - added sentinel valist markup for 2 functions.
* Thu Jan 13 2005
  - add entries for preferred fonts for Farsi (Persian):
    Terafik -> sans-serif, monospaced, Nazil -> serif.
* Wed Oct 06 2004
  - Bugzilla #46852: add /usr/lib/ooo-1.1/share/fonts to the default
    directories searched for fonts.
* Fri Sep 17 2004
  - add "Georgia", "Trebuchet", "Segoe", "Bell MT", and "Andale Sans"
    to the generic lists.
* Tue Sep 14 2004
  - add FZMingTiB to the "monospace" prefer list (thanks to Zhe Su
    for noticing). Remove all "Kai" fonts from the "sans-serif"
    prefer list.
* Tue Sep 14 2004
  - Bugzilla #45160, Comment #6:
    prefer FZSongTi and FZMingTiB also for sans-serif instead of
    the "Kai" fonts.
* Tue Sep 14 2004
  - Bugzilla #44409: set the default value for rgba to "unknown"
    instead of "none".
* Mon Sep 06 2004
  - add Japanese IPA fonts to prefer lists.
  - add FZMingTiB to prefer list for "serif" below "FZSongTi"
    (if we don't install the Arphic fonts by default, there is
    no traditional Chinese font left in the list otherwise).
* Wed Aug 25 2004
  - Avoid /bin/sh in PreRequires
* Tue Aug 10 2004
  - for some Bengali fonts (e.g. "Mukti Narrow"), the autohinter
    works well with the patch from
    applied. But for "Likhan" it still doesn't work that well
    (look how the "matra" lines at the top line up). Therefore,
    switch off the autohinter for the "Likhan" font.
* Mon Aug 09 2004
  - add Bengali fonts "Likhan" (serif) and "Mukti Narrow"
    (sans-serif) to the prefer lists.
* Wed Aug 04 2004
  - add sazanami fonts to the prefer lists.
* Wed Jul 28 2004
  - update to remove fontconfig.patch, this is
    included upstream now. This update also includes a patch by
    Lubos Lunak <> which helps to improve the
    performance of fontconfig with KDE.
* Fri Jun 04 2004
  - prefer the proportinal "HGPMinchoL" instead of the monospaced
    "HGMinchoL" for serif. Same with "HGPGothicB" instead of
    "HGGothicB" for sans-serif.
  - add all Mincho and Gothic faces of the commercial Ricoh fonts
    to the list of generic names in suse-generic-names.conf to get
    reasonable fallbacks if those fonts are not installed.
* Fri May 28 2004
  - add the Japanese fonts "HGMinchoL" and "HGGothicB" made by Ricoh
    to the prefer lists and generics lists. These are the fonts which
    Novell Japan has licensed, they should be preferred if they are
* Wed May 26 2004
  - fix build by defining MIN,MAX and ABS where needed
* Fri Apr 23 2004
  - Bugzilla #38243: fix the characters set handling for the
    Japanese Dynafonts.
* Tue Apr 20 2004
  - Bugzilla #38244:
    remove rules to force use of embedded bitmaps by switching
    off anti-aliasing. This is not needed anymore because libXft
    in our XFree86 package is patched to make use of the embedded
    bitmaps anyway if the embeddedbitmap=true parameter is set.
* Fri Apr 16 2004
  - Bugzilla #38244: use embedded bitmaps by default for Chinese
    (requested by Zhe Su).
* Fri Apr 16 2004
  - Bugzilla #38205: make hintstyle=hintfull the default again
    for CJK fonts. Our freetype package now has a patch applied to
    improve the hinting for CJK fonts, with that patch the results
    are much better with hintstyle=hintfull than with
  - fix from upstream CVS: (src/fcfreetype.c):
    * Fixed bug in using available_sizes[i].height which
      is in pixels, not 64ths of a pixel.
* Sat Apr 03 2004
  - Bugzilla #38204 comment #5:
    "Fix some issue in the default alias list": SimSun is a serif
    font, it should not ge in the generics sans-serif list.
  - Bugzilla #38204 comment #9:
    add rule to get artificial bold for fonts without a bold version.
    Until Bugzilla #38202 is fixed, this rule does nothing, but it
    does no harm either.
  - also specify the foundry when trying to prefer bitmap fonts,
    without that the prefer_bitmap rules won't work with Qt
* Fri Apr 02 2004
  - Bugzilla #37540: rework rules for use of bitmap fonts to make
    it easier to get at clearly readable results for CJK if by using
    embedded bitmaps are used:
    * improve rules for the case "prefer_bitmap=true" (not default)
      for Latin fonts: replace all "Helvetica" clones with
      the bitmap font "Adobe Helvetica", all "Times" clones with
      "Adobe Times", and all "Courier" clones with "Adobe Courier".
      For hardcore bitmap addicts.
    * use embedded bitmaps only for complete ranges, i.e. never
      use bitmaps from size a-b, scalable fonts from b-c, and bitmaps
      again from size c-d.
    * don't match pixelsizes with compare="eq" when trying to use
      embedded bitmaps. This won't work if non-integer pixelsizes are
      requested. Use compare="more_eq" and compare="less_eq" to check
      for a range instead. Then the embedded bitmaps will be used
      for the whole range, even if non-integer pixelsizes are
    * use embedded bitmaps for "FZSongTi" only up to 18 pixel.
  - change prefer lists for Chinese:
    * make "FZSongTi" the highest priority "serif" and "monospace"
      font for Chinese
    * make "FZKaiTi" the highest priority "sans-serif" font for
    * remove "SimSun", "FZSongTi", "HanyiSong", and "ZYSong18030"
      from the prefer list for "sans-serif" because these are really
      serif fonts.
    * remove "AR PL KaitiM GB" and "AR PL KaitiM Big5" from the prefer
      list for monospace. All other Chinese fonts in this list are
      "ming" or "song" style, it is weird to have fonts of the
      completely different "kai" style in the same list.
* Wed Mar 31 2004
  - Bugzilla #37114 and 37540: use hintstyle=hintnone for
    CJK fonts to improve rendering.
  - Bugzilla #37820: handle dual-width fonts as proportional fonts
    to avoid extra wide spacing.
  - Bugzilla #34400: CID-keyed fonts work for SuSE 9.1 remove
    the directory /usr/share/ghostscript/Resource/CIDFont/ from
    the default font directory list again.
* Mon Mar 29 2004
  - Bugzilla #37310: fix location of fontconfig-user.html in
* Wed Mar 24 2004
  - Bugzilla #36879: don't match fonts without foundries if
    a specific foundry is requested (fix from upstream CVS).
  - remove bitmap-spacing.patch (included upstream).
  - install iso639-{1,2} as documentation
* Fri Mar 19 2004
  - Bugzilla 36561#:
    require the Euro sign for languages fr,nl,de,el,es,it,pt,fi,
    and en.
* Thu Mar 11 2004
  - use -fPIC for static libraries too.
* Tue Mar 02 2004
  - update to
  - add bitmap-spacing.patch to fix Bugzilla #34677
* Mon Mar 01 2004
  - add entries for Adrian's new "SUSE Sans", "SUSE Serif",
    "SUSE Sans Mono" fonts. Prefer over Nimbus and Luxi.
* Mon Feb 09 2004
  - update to
  - remove fontconfig-ta.orth-cvs.patch and freetype-2.1.7.patch
    (included now).
  - add /usr/local/share/fonts/ as a default directory (see
  - add /usr/share/ghostscript/Resource/CIDFont/ as a default
    font directory.
  - add rule to use the URW font "Standard Symbols L" as a
    replacement if the original Adobe "Symbol" font is not available.
    (see Bugzilla #34324)
  - move SuSE specific fontconfig rules into included files.
* Sat Jan 10 2004
  - build as user
* Tue Dec 23 2003
  - make it build with freetype 2.1.7 again.
  - Bugzilla Bug 32080: turn off subpixel hinting by default.
* Thu Oct 02 2003
  - remove "ed" from "# neededforbuild".
* Thu Aug 28 2003
  - add "FreeSans", "FreeSerif", "FreeMono" to fonts.conf
    (priority below Nimbus, Bitstream and Luxi).
  - move priority of "Bitstream Vera" fonts below Nimbus.
  - move fontconfig-devel documentation to
* Sun Aug 24 2003
  - add freetype2-devel and glibc-devel to the -devel Requires
* Sat Aug 23 2003
  - udpate to version 2.2.1
  - add %run_ldconfig
* Tue Jul 15 2003
  - add rules to use embedded bitmaps in FZSongTi if desired.
  - use binding="same" instead of binding="strong" when adding
    bitmap fonts to the pattern. This is necessary to keep the
    generic aliases "sans-serif" etc. working as usual even
    if "prefer_bitmap" is set to "true". With binding="strong",
    "sans-serif" always expands to "Adobe Helvetica" if
    "prefer_bitmap" is set to "true" which is not useful for
    many languages.
* Wed Jul 09 2003
  - added FZSongTi to serif, sans-serif and monospace family aliases
* Wed May 28 2003
  - install fc-list and fc-cache man pages.
* Sun May 18 2003
  - fontconfig-ta.orth-cvs.patch: Remove 0b82 and Tamil numbers from
    tamil orthography (from upstream cvs)
  - add Tamil fonts to "prefer" aliases
  - remove duplicate entries of the Bitstream fonts from fonts.conf
  - set globaladvance=false for Y.OzFont because it is a dual-width
  - change .spec file to make it possible to build with /usr/X11R6
    prefix (to make updates for SuSE Linux 8.2 easy).
* Wed Apr 23 2003
  - created package
