Updated: {t1lib/t1lib5/t1lib-devel/t1lib-x11/t1libx5/t1libx-devel}-5.1.2-2: Rasterizer library for Adobe Type 1 Fonts


New versions of 't1lib/t1lib5/t1lib-devel/t1lib-x11/t1libx5/t1libx-devel' have been uploaded
to a server near you.

Rasterizer library for Adobe Type 1 Fonts. Supports rotation and transformation, 
kerning underlining and antialiasing. Does not need X11, but special functions
for X11 are provided. AFM-files can be generated from Type 1 font files and font 
subsetting is also easily possible. Includes Composite Character support.

Cygwin NEWS:

 o Recompiled against latest X11R7.4

t1lib NEWS:
 o Small number of fixes reported by users. The fixes pertain to a
   vulnerability issue, memory access issues.

 o More decent handling if Encoding and / or FontBBox specification are missing
   (which is invalid with respect to the specification, but recoverablel).
