Hello Anthony,

The latest FreeType CVS (as of 2003-01-31) appears to have deteriorated
bytecode-enabled rendering.  Latin text (e.g. those from Times News
Roman, Andale Mono, etc.) looks a bit weird, but by the time I noticed
it (on my CRT monitor with non-sub-pixel rendering), I had already
uploaded it to Debian unstable.  Oh well.  :-)

Anyhow, as expected, other Debian users noticed the difference and
filed a bug report, with screenshots and all.

  2.1.3-8 = CVS update as of 2003-01-31, bytecode interpreter on.

  2.1.3-7 = CVS update as of 2003-01-22, with David Chester's latest
            bluescale2 patch (2003-01-23 on the devel mailing list);
            bytecode interpreter on.

Thanks in advance!

Just fixed this in the CVS, please test before RC2 :-)

by the way, the vertical spacing might still be different, but I do not
consider this as a bug..

Subject: Bug#179450: libfreetype6: Misaligned font spacing/sizing

Package: libfreetype6
Version: 2.1.3-8
Severity: important
Tags: sid
Between 2.1.3-7 and 2.1.3-8, it appears that horizontal font sizing and
spacing got broken. These galeon screenshots show the problem:
Look for example at the word 'declared' - the letter 'e' is too thin and
has too much whitespace on the right.

I have subpixel rendering in "rgb" mode enabled.
