   * d/p-freetype/
     Revert upstream commit that added the -export-symbols option to libtool,
     we need to review the symbols used in debian before we can hide the
     private one.
   * debian/libfreetype6.symbols: Make any application depending on private
     symbols depend against an invalid package, this will help us to find out

     libfreetype6 (>= 1.PRIVATE.1).  Closes: #799445.

   * Non-maintainer upload by the Security Team.
   * Fix two security issues in the CFF rasterizer (closes: #741299)

freetype (2.5.2-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream release
     - fixes a crasher bug with certain fonts.  Closes: #733052.
     - drop of additional symbols which were previously exported but are only
       meant for debugging and upstream recommends not enabling them when
       building in "release mode".  If this impacts users of freetype, we can
       re-enable these symbols later.
   * Call on build to refresh autotools; not using dh-autoreconf
     because the upstream directory structure is non-standard and it's a
     throw-away dir, so there's no advantage to dh-autoreconf's rollback
   * Fix symbols file with respect to more complete version info found in

     actually a bug in the compiler_hardening_fixes.patch; fix it there

       savannah-bug-35833.patch, savannah-bug-37905.patch,
       savannah-bug-37906.patch, savannah-bug-37907.patch
     - Internal symbols have been dropped in this version.  No soname change
       because the symbols are not supposed to be used, but past experience
       suggests that this may break some third-party software anyway.
   * compiler_hardening_fixes.patch: fix wrong snprintf() calls in ttdebug.c
     that cause an overflow 100% of the time.
   * debian/patches-ft2demos/compiler-warning-fixes.patch: Fix a wrong
     cast that triggers a compiler warning.

     - drop patch ft2demos-grkey.patch, fixed upstream.
   * debian/patches-freetype/enable-gxvalid-otvalid.patch: enable the

   * Pass proper --host/--build args to ./configure, to support
     cross-building.  Closes: #465292.
   * clean up a number of unused variables in debian/rules; maybe someday

freetype (2.3.9-4) unstable; urgency=low

   * debian/patches-ft2demos/compiler-hardening-fixes.patch: always check the
     return value of fread(), to appease hardened compilers such as what's
     used in Ubuntu by default.  Set a good example, even if these demos
     shouldn't be security-sensitive!  Also, along the way catch and fix a
     small memory leak on error. :)
   * debian/patches-freetype/proper-armel-asm-declaration.patch: use __asm__
     for declaring assembly instead of asm, fixing a build failure on armel.

   * debian/patches-freetype/enable-subpixel-rendering.patch: enable subpixel
     rendering features, used by libcairo and xft to provide LCD colour
     filtering.  This is considered no more or less evil than the bytecode
     interpreter which we also enable.
   * Move debian/libfreetype6.copyright to debian/copyright, and selectively
     install it to the single binary package in debian/rules; the same
     copyright file is used for all the binaries anyway via symlinks, so
     there's no reason it shouldn't ship as debian/copyright.
     Closes: #381228.
   * Clip redundant LICENSE.TXT and GPL.TXT files from the
     libfreetype6-dev package.  Closes: #459802.

freetype (2.3.9-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * debian/rules: bump the shlibs version, since 2.3.9 introduces a handful
     of new symbols
   * debian/libfreetype6.symbols: add a new symbols file, which should cause
     most packages to have relaxed dependencies of libfreetype6 now.

freetype (2.3.9-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream version; closes: #519168.
     * fixes a SIGFPE in evince when displaying some PDFs.  Closes: #494350,

   * fix up the get-orig-source target to autodetect the upstream version
     using the changelog by default.


freetype (2.3.7-2) unstable; urgency=high

   * High-urgency upload for RC bugfix.
   * Add debian/patches-freetype/no-segfault-on-load_mac_face, patch from

freetype (2.3.7-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream release
   * Add a new get-orig-source rule to handle downloading & packing the bits
     for us
   * Build-depend on x11proto-core-dev instead of the obsolete x-dev.
   * Unset DH_VERBOSE when redirecting the output of dh_shlibdeps,
     otherwise the substvars are kinda messed up.
   * Fix a typo that caused debhelper log junk to be dumped into /usr.
   * Replace ${Source-Version} with ${binary:Version} in debian/control.
   * Don't install useless copies of /usr/share/doc/libfreetype6 in the
     other packages, the symlink is all we need.

freetype (2.3.6-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream release
     - Fixes multiple vulnerabilities in the PFB font parser (CVE-2008-1806,
       CVE-2008-1807, CVE-2008-1808).  Closes: #485841.
   * Fix some very bizarre quoting of $CFLAGS in debian/rules


freetype (2.3.5-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream release
     - Drop patches 374902-composite-glyphs, CVE-2006-3467_pcf-strlen,
       and CVE-2007-2754_ttgload, merged upstream.

freetype (2.2.1-6) unstable; urgency=high

   * High-urgency upload for security fix.
   * Remove spurious patch file from the package diff, sigh.
   * Add debian/patches-freetype/CVE-2007-2754_ttgfload to address
     CVE-2007-2754, a bug allowing execution of arbitrary code via a crafted
     TTF image by way of an integer overflow.  Closes: #425625.


freetype (2.2.1-5) unstable; urgency=high

   * High-urgency upload for RC bugfix.
   * Add debian/patches-freetype/CVE-2006-3467_pcf-strlen.patch to
     address CVE-2006-3467, a missing string length check in PCF files that
     leads to a possibly exploitable integer overflow.  Thanks to Martin
     Pitt for the patch.  Closes: #379920.

freetype (2.2.1-4) unstable; urgency=low

   * Drop libfreetype6.postinst code for cleaning up /usr/X11R6/lib;
     whatever version it applied to is pre-sarge, and this code is
     sufficiently blunt that I don't think it should be kept around.
     Closes: #386379.

freetype (2.2.1-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * Apply patch from Eugeniy Meshcheryakov <>, applied
     upstream, to fix bug in rendering of composite glyphs.
     Closes: #374902.

freetype (2.2.1-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Enable full bytecode interpreter instead of just the
     "non-patented portions".
   * Use $(CURDIR) instead of $(PWD) to build with sudo. Closes: #367579.

freetype (2.2.1-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream release

freetype (2.2~rc4-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream release
     - this version should restore binary compatibility with version
       2.1.7.  Closes: #314385.
     - use the old ft2demos and freetype-docs for now; patch ft2demos
       (temporarily only!) to still use the internal headers, which are
       now no longer exported as part of the API
   * Patch to handle empty short metrics, as seen in BitStream Vera.
   * Bump shlibs to 2.2~rc4-1.  Closes: #316031.
   * Replace debian/rules patch handling with quilt; thanks to Jurij
     Smakov <> for the patch.

freetype (2.1.10-3) unstable; urgency=low

   * Removed freetype-2.1.10-fixaliasing.patch to restore proper sub-pixel
     anti-aliased hinted rendering.  Thanks to Michael Biebl for reporting
     the bug.  I was able to reproduce the bug setting gnome-font-properties
     to: 96 dpi, sub-pixel anti-aliasing, full hinting, with Bitstream Vera
     Sans Roman 11 as desktop font.  (Closes: Bug#359104)
   * Added more fixes to debian/patches/freetype-2.1.10-cvsfixes.patch:
      * 2006-03-27  David Turner  <>
         * src/sfnt/ttkern.c (tt_face_get_kerning): Fix a serious bug that
           causes some programs to go into an infinite loop when dealing with
           fonts that don't have a properly sorted kerning sub-table.
      * 2006-03-21  Zhe Su  <>
         * src/base/ftoutln.c (FT_Outline_Get_Orientation): Improve algorithm.
        This is to prevent certain emboldened and hinted glyphs from becoming
        "weird".  See
        for details.
   * Oops, I inadvertently set the shlibs dependency to (>= 2.1.10-1)
     in 2.1.10-2.  Reverted to (>= 2.1.5-1).

freetype (2.1.10-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Will Newton has agreed to let Steve Langasek adopt the package.
     Therefore, I have taken the liberty to set the Maintainer field
     to Steve, and to add myself as an uploader.  :-)  (See Bug#351821)
   * Acknowledge NMUs by Frans Pop (shlibs for udeb, Closes: Bug#355939)
     and by Joey Hess (xlibs-dev removal, Closes: Bug#346706).
     Thank you all!
   * Merge fixes from 2.1.10-1ubuntu1 (Many thanks!):
      * Patches for Malone #5560.
         - various fixes (mostly embolding which caused characters to
           slant upward, most evident for CJK users in KDE and icewm.
           (Closes: Bug#356495, Bug#356854)
         - put back internal API used by xorg-x11
         - fix autofit render setup

freetype (2.1.10-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream (Closes: #298660, #245532).
   * New maintainer, co-maintainer required!
   * Disable CJK autohinting patch due to incompatability with this version
     of freetype.
   * Remove some very old unapplied patches.
   * Add freetype-config.1 manpage.
   * Add doc-base file for development docs. (Closes: #280827)
   * Fix build with non-default umask. (Closes: #307464, #166511)
   * Patch merged upstream. (Closes: #252673)
   * Acknowledge NMUS.

freetype (2.1.9-1) unstable; urgency=low

    * New upstream.

freetype (2.1.7-2.4) unstable; urgency=high

   * Non-maintainer upload.
   * freetype-2.1.7/src/bdf/bdflib.c: When a glyph has zero width or height,
     a bitmap is not actually allocated for it, but the code used to try to
     use it anyway. Now it no longer does that. Fix by Steve Langasek,
     based on something I did earlier. Added
     debian/patches/300-bdflib-zero-width-glyphs.diff. Closes: #302269
     (Segmentation fault with certain bdf fonts).
   * freetype-2.1.7/src/bdf/bdflib.c: BDF font files with glyphs with an
     encoding value of at least 65536 would overflow the bitmap with
     65536 bits which bdflib.c uses to keep track of whether it has seen
     an encoding already. Changed things so that encodings above the
     limit cause an error code to be returned instead of a segfault
     happening. Ideally, the bitmap should be replaced with a more
     compact representation, but that is too big a change for something
     this small. I will, however, only lower the severity of the bug
     (305413) to normal, instead of marking it fixed. Added


freetype (2.1.7-2.3) unstable; urgency=low

   * NMU
   * debian/patches/090-freetype-2.1.7-normalize-fix.diff: Patch

freetype (2.1.7-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Acknowledging 2.1.7-1.1.  Many thanks to David Mosberger-Tang and
     fellow Debian developer J.H.M. Dassen (Ray) for fixing the
     gnumeric and abiword crashing problem on powerpc and ia64
     by compiling with -fno-strict-aliasing.  Will report upstream.
   * Applied Akito Hirai's freetype-2.1.7-autohint-cjkfonts-20031130.patch.
     Thanks to Firefly's detailed testing and development, and to Shuke
     (Fan Xiaoju) and Tetralet for building unofficial debs.  :-)
   * Converted changelog.Debian.gz to UTF-8.
   * Removed /usr/share/doc/libfreetype6/reference/.cvsignore.

freetype (2.1.7-1.1) unstable; urgency=high

   * NMU
   * [debian/control] Applied patch by David Mosberger-Tang
     <> to compile -fno-strict-aliasing. Freetype
     is apparently known to be unsafe for strict-aliasing rules defined
     by ANSI (and the compiler configuration files in the upstream
     source package itself reflect that), which caused crashes on ia64
     and powerpc. This patch has been confirmed to fix the gnumeric and
     abiword crashes on powerpc. (Closes: #221597, #225119, #226380).


freetype (2.1.7-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream version.

freetype (2.1.5-3) unstable; urgency=high

   * debian/patches/freetype-2.1.5-type1-crash.diff: prevents
     crashes when opening Type1 fonts with PaintType != 0 or
     StrokeWidth != 0, exhibited with e.g. Hershey fonts in gsfonts-other.
     Many thanks to Josselin Mouette (Debian fontconfig maintainer) for
     analysis and patch!  (Closes: Bug#216605, #216649, #216761)
   * FTC_SBit_Cache_Lookup() exhibits a bug in ah_hinter_load_glyph
     where FT_Render_Glyph may be called twice under some circumstances.
     Many thanks to Ralf for reporting and upstream author Werner Lemberg
     for fixing the bug.  (Closes: Bug#213232, #208943, #209715)
   * Added Conflicts: xpdf-reader (<< 1.00-4) to avoid problems with users
     upgrading from Debian 3.0.  Thanks to Adrian Bunk for the bug report.
     (Partially fixes Bug#214732)

freetype (2.1.5-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Added patch by David Bevan ([devel] 2003-09-19) to fix read_pfb_tag()
     so it does not fail on end-of-file indicated (0x8003).
   * Do not install the irrelevant docs/reference/README.  (Closes: Bug#211755)

freetype (2.1.5-1) unstable; urgency=low

   * New upstream official 2.1.5 release.  (ftdocs is still 2.1.4.)
   * Set libfreetype6-udeb to Priority: extra to fix override disparity.

freetype (2.1.4-5) unstable; urgency=low

   * CVS updates as of 2003-08-18.  Upstream has restored binary
     compatibility with the FreeType 2.1.4 and previous releases.
   * Applied patch by Mike Fabian (2003-08-27): check bdf properties
     WEIGHT_NAME and SLANT case insensitively.  Many thanks!  :-)
   * Reversed YAMANO-UCHI Hidetoshi's 2003-06-13 change to ft2demos
     graph/x11/; Debian shys away from setting rpath.

freetype (2.1.4-4) unstable; urgency=low

   * CVS updates as of 2003-06-07 with many fixes, including:
     - Werner Lemberg has fixed the problem FreeType 2 had with
       HuaTian multiple-level subglyphs fonts like htst3.ttf.
       Many thanks!  :-)
   * TT_CONFIG_OPTION_FORCE_UNPATENTED_HINTING is left undefined for now.
     (MS web core fonts like MonoType Arial would become distorted.)
   * Disable Firefly's GRAYS_USE_GAMMA patch for now: I have received
     several bug reports about "ugly fonts" or jaggies already, and I am
     not sure whether it is due to the adjusted gamma values or
     the new unpatented hinting in CVS.  Let's see what happens.  :-)
     (Closes: Bug#196029, #196048, #196086)
   * Yikes, Werner's number to pointer changes broke binary compatibility
     with XFree86 4.3.0.  I hope the patch
     correctly reverts the problem.  My apologies to the Debian XFree86
     for my oversight.
   * FreeType 2.1.4 was unable to read some gzip'ed fonts Many thanks to
     "Alexis S. L. Carvalho" <> for diagnosing and
     correcting the problem.  (Closes: Bug#184355)
   * Note to self: Debian's file/libmagic1 (4.02-4) misdetects as "Linux/i386 core" file on i386 platforms.

   * CVS updates as of 2003-06-01:

       Akito's 011-freetype-2.1.4-ttcmap4.diff: already applied upstream.
   * [ftoption.h] Enabled Graham Asher's unpatented hinting:
     Many thanks to Graham Asher and Artifex for their contribution!
   * Temporary disable Akito Hirai's CJK autohinting enhancement: it
     currently does not apply cleanly to FreeType CVS.
   * [libfreetype6-dev.files]: Added usr/lib/pkgconfig/ for freetype2.pc.
   * Added Firefly's patch to #define GRAYS_USE_GAMMA with finetune.

   * Reversed upstream author's 2003-02-25 patch on ttdriver.c:
      - src/truetype/ttdriver.c (Set_Char_Sizes): fixed a rounding bug when
        computing the scale factors for a given character size in points with
     Not sure what how undoing this would affect autohinting, but at least
     rendering with bytecode interpreter is back to normal.  :-)
     (Follow-up: Bug#181938, #183794, #182674, etc.)
   * Tests with David Chester's suggested patches, e.g. symmetric "m".
   * Added a fix for double free in the embedded bitmap code in freetype.

   * libtool-1.4 is not 100% compatible with the libtool-1.3.5 included
     in the upstream source.  Also, it seems to be unnecessary to

freetype ( unstable; urgency=medium

   * Hehe, silly me, I forgot to add "xlibs-dev" to Build-Depends
     when I merged in freetype2-demos.  Thanks to Martin Michlmayr
     for the notice.  Closes: Bug#94569.

freetype ( unstable; urgency=low

   * Updated to post-2.0.2 freetype2-current as of 2001-04-22.
   * On i386, freetype2-demos is rebuilt with xlibs_4.0.2-13 instead of the

freetype ( unstable; urgency=low

   * Updated to freetype2-current as of 2001-03-17.
   * [builds/unix/]:
      - IMHO, the current upstream source caters too much to broken
        compilers that the Unix build suffers somewhat.
      - Use sed to replace all instances of
        with FT2_{PUBLIC,CONFIG,INTERNAL}_FILE(*.h), which currently
        expands to <freetype2/freetype/{,config/,internal/}*.h>
        in freetype/config/ftheader.h and freetype/internal/internal.h.
      - This fix, without sacrificing compatibility on some brain-dead
        compilers on other platforms, may mean that
        "-I/usr/include/freetype2" is no longer needed on Unix/Linux/Hurd
      - But it would be very foolish to remove "-I/usr/include/freetype2".
        Thou shalt always use $(shell freetype-config --cflags).
      - Thanks to Gordon Sadler for the suggestion.  :-)
        Closes: Bug#79951.
   * [builds/unix/ft2unix.h]:
      - Removed the FT2_{PUBLIC,CONFIG,INTERNAL}_FILE macros because
        they are already defined in freetype/config/ftheader.h.
      - Use FT2_ROOT instead.  Afterall, cpp on Unix is not broken.  ;-)
      - Thanks to Takuo Kitame for reporting the conflicting #define's.
        Closes: Bug#89363.
   * [debian/rules]: Moved out some old cruft to

     no longer compresses *.png.
   * Backed out the patch applied by Anthony Wong <> to
     contrib/ttf2pfb/configure in freetype_1.2-6.1 because upstream fixed

         and used DH_OPTIONS to reduce clutter.
       - Oops!  I used bashism but set "SHELL = /bin/sh".  Changed to
         "SHELL = /bin/bash".  :-)
       - Install upstream docs/changes.txt as changelog.gz in the
         freetype2 (shared library) package.

freetype (1.2-6.1) unstable; urgency=low

   * Non-maintainer upload (see bug #38813)
   * Added 'CPPFLAGS= ... -I$srcdir/../../lib/extend' to
     contrib/ttf2pfb/configure, otherwise compile will fail for
     ftxpost.h cannot be found.
   * license.txt.gz is not shipped (lintian complains)

freetype (1.2-6) unstable; urgency=low

   * Copied debian/postinst to debian/freetype-tools.postinst

       - Removed the "<" and ">", and added a suggestion
         to Debian-JP's X server with X-TT support in freetype2's
         package description.
       - Now freetype-tools also Suggests: t1utils, which contains
         /usr/bin/t1asm that helps ttf2pfb create real .pfa and .pfb
         files.  (Also added a note in README.Debian.)
   * Updated the upstream authors' e-mail addresses in "control" and
   * [debian/changelog]: Add the changelog of the freetype (1.1-0.1)
       non-maintainer release done by Marcelo E. Magallon
       <> in June 1998.  I forgot to do so back
       then.  Sorry!  :-)

     renamed to "freetype1" and is now obsolete.
   * Upgraded to standards version (no changes).

       - freetype2-dev -- Conflicts: freetype1-dev
   * [debian/rules]:
      - /usr/lib/ is now installed in the freetype2-dev package.

        problem quite nicely already, so that part of the patch is not used.
      - Added a GNU GPL copyright statement at the top.  :-)
   * Ran libtoolize from the Debian libtool-1.2 package.  This solves the
     -lc problem.  :-)  config.guess and config.sub are taken from the ones

     the libtool bug report filed by Jim Pick <> for hints.)

     (this could be a problem... what about packages that depend on
   * Added "Conflitcs: freetype1 (<=" to freetype-tools
     because of the mo files freetype1 contains and that are now in
     freetype-tools, alogn-side the programs that use the files.
