TTEngine is the TrueType font based text rendering engine for AmigaOS. Version 5.0 can be downloaded from the home page of TTEngine. New version has some interesting features.
o Two new functions: TT_GetPixmap() and TT_FreePixmap() for text pixelmap extraction. Pixelmap is 8 bit per pixel, 256 gray levels. Then the pixmap may be further processed. Useful for e.g. painting and image processing software.|
o Antialiasing is now based on pixel luminance and hue (RGB correction is applied as well). Gives even better text quality especially on contrasting background (e.g. red text on green).
o New text styles: underline, double underline, overstrike, double overstrike.
o Fixed bugs in JAM2, INVERSVID and COMPLEMENT draw modes.
o Colours of text can be now specified directly as RGB via TT_Foreground and TT_Background tags.
As always some bugs have been fixed. Check "release_notes" file in the distribution archive for the full list of changes.
