FreeType

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
