README

FreeType 2.12.1
===============

Homepage: https://www.freetype.org

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
INFORMATION.

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

https://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/freetype/

and download one of the following files.

freetype-doc-2.12.1.tar.xz
freetype-doc-2.12.1.tar.gz
ftdoc2121.zip

To view the documentation online, go to

Mailing Lists
-------------

The preferred way of communication with the FreeType team is using
e-mail lists.

general use and discussion: freetype@nongnu.org
engine internals, porting, etc.: freetype-devel@nongnu.org
announcements: freetype-announce@nongnu.org
git repository tracker: freetype-commit@nongnu.org

The lists are moderated; see

https://www.freetype.org/contact.html

how to subscribe.


Bugs
----

Please submit bug reports at

https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/freetype/freetype/-/issues

Alternatively, you might report bugs by e-mail to
`freetype-devel@nongnu.org`. Don't forget to send a detailed
explanation of the problem -- there is nothing worse than receiving a
terse message that only says 'it doesn't work'.


Patches
-------

For larger changes please provide merge requests at

https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/freetype/freetype/-/merge_requests

Alternatively, you can send patches to the `freetype-devel@nongnu.org`
mailing list -- and thank you in advance for your work on improving
FreeType!

Details on the process can be found here:

https://www.freetype.org/developer.html#patches


Enjoy!

The FreeType Team
