I know I said a while ago that I was back to FreeType development, but then I dropped it. This time I think it is going to stick. I need to get into font programming again. I've been working on finite element analysis software for the last eight years as a build support specialist, touching on Perl, Python, C, C++, assembly, Fortran, custom XML based build tools, math libraries, some code architecture, etc... But it's just not the same as fonts and straight up C programming.
I can work on Linux and Mac OS systems. Is there an Xcode project for FreeType, or is it basically still configure driven?
I look forward to contributing again. I don't know if there is any font parsing work that needs to be done. That's what I did before, perhaps I can get back into that...
