FreeType 2 font engine, shared library files

The FreeType project is a team of volunteers who develop free, portable and high-quality software solutions for digital typography. They specifically target embedded systems and focus on bringing small, efficient and ubiquitous products.

The FreeType 2 library is their new software font engine. It has been designed to provide the following important features:

 * A universal and simple API to manage font files
 * Support for several font formats through loadable modules
 * High-quality anti-aliasing
 * High portability & performance

Supported font formats include:

 * TrueType files (.ttf) and collections (.ttc)
 * Type 1 font files both in ASCII (.pfa) or binary (.pfb) format
 * Type 1 Multiple Master fonts.  The FreeType 2 API also provides
   routines to manage design instances easily
 * Type 1 CID-keyed fonts
 * OpenType/CFF (.otf) fonts
 * CFF/Type 2 fonts
 * Adobe CEF fonts (.cef), used to embed fonts in SVG documents with
   the Adobe SVG viewer plugin.
 * Windows FNT/FON bitmap fonts

This package contains the files needed to run programs that use the FreeType 2 library.
