Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. FreeType is a software library written in C that implements a font rasterization engine. It is used to render text on to bitmaps and provides support for other font-related operations. The main authors of FreeType are or were David Turner, Robert Wilhelm, and Werner Lemberg. FreeType works with an assortment of font formats, including TrueType, Type 1, and OpenType. FreeType is released under two free software licenses: the GNU General Public License or a permissive license with an acknowledgment clause similar to that of the current license of XFree86 (the acknowledgment clause renders it incompatible with version 2 of the GNU GPL, though it is compatible with GPL version 3). The library can thus be used by any kind of project, be it proprietary or not. As well as being used by the major free software desktop systems, FreeType has been used as a rasterization engine for modern video games, and Opera for the Wii.show more
