|Description:||TrueType font rendering library, version 1 (1.3.1-12)|
This is version 1 of the FreeType font renderer for TrueType fonts. It is a library used by programs that want to do their own text drawing. This package has hinting disabled, meaning that some characters will look _really_ ugly. Some techniques used for hinting are patented by Apple. This package is for the people who don't have an appropriate patent license from Apple. If you have one or don't care, use the freetype-hinting package instead.
As of 1.3.1-11, the headers are moved into the freetype1 subdir of /sw/include/ so that they are not found by the compiler unless explicit an -I flag is passed for them.
