ttf-freefont (20060126b-3) unstable; urgency=low

     Invert U+2198/U+2199 in FreeSerif
     Closes: #275759
   * Build-Depends on debhelper (>= 4.1.0) as we use debhelper.mk

ttf-freefont (20060126b-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Change package priority to extra
   * debian/rules, debian/control:

       Huge thanks to Josh Triplett for the patch

       http://alioth.debian.org/projects/freefont
       (Closes: #255277)
   * Panayotis Katsaloulis
     - Corrected Greek fonts (missing letters, wrong accent, etc.)

ttf-freefont (20031008-1.1) unstable; urgency=high

   * Non-maintainer upload.
   * High urgency due to fix for release-critical bug.
   * debian/fontforge-bug-workaround.patch: This patch works around a bug
     in fontforge: it ignores the Ascent and Descent values specified in
     the sfd, and supplies its own incorrect values.  It also adds the
     HheadAscent and HheadDescent value to its own values, so this patch
     uses these values to correct the calculated values back to the correct
     values.  This patch should be reviewed when the bug in fontforge is
     fixed.  (closes: #254113)
   * debian/control: Add Build-Depends on patch.
   * debian/rules: Apply the patch.

2003

   * debian/control: Removed (udeb) from the udeb description field
     (closes: #195627).

ttf-freefont (20030519-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream release.

ttf-freefont (20030327-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Updated defoma hint file to reflect correct character set information.
     Thanks to Michael Fedrowitz. (closes: #187799)

ttf-freefont (20030319-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Changed package so the TTF files are built from the SFD files using
     pfaedit, rather than using the upstream provided TTFs. Since we are
     now using TTFs without hinting turned on, we don't have the problem
     of ugliness of the fonts due to pfaedit having broken hinting.
     This has also cut the size of the source package in half.
     (closes: #182823)

ttf-freefont (20030319-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream release. The new upstream release fixes some font
     breakage which occurred in 20030219. Sadly, hinting still is
     borked. (closes: #183076)
