FreeType 2.12.1


FreeType is a freely available software library to render fonts.

It is written in C, designed to be small, efficient, highly
customizable, and portable while capable of producing high-quality
output (glyph images) of most vector and bitmap font formats.

Please read the `docs/CHANGES` file, it contains IMPORTANT

Read the files `docs/INSTALL*` for installation instructions; see the
file `docs/LICENSE.TXT` for the available licenses.

For using FreeType's git repository instead of a distribution bundle,
please read file `README.git`. Note that you have to actually clone
the repository; using a snapshot will not work (in other words, don't
use gitlab's 'Download' button).

The FreeType 2 API reference is located in directory `docs/reference`;
use the file `index.html` as the top entry point. [Please note that
currently the search function for locally installed documentation
doesn't work due to cross-site scripting issues.]

Additional documentation is available as a separate package from our
sites. Go to
