TTEngine is a quality TrueType font engine based on FreeType2 project. New features:
o Recompiled with newest FreeType 2.1.3 sources. After some research I've decided to leave bytecode interpreter turned on by default (it is turned off in default FreeType config). Autohinter seems to be not that good as FreeType authors advertise.
o Two wersions of TTEngine are now distributed. One full featured and one without bytecode interpreter. Both have 100% compatible API and can be interchanged by just replacing library file. The "light" version of the library may be interesting for commercial applications authors, since bytecode interpreter uses some patented things.
o TTEngine now supports all ISO-8859 encodings (from 1 to 16, except 12 which probably does not exist), also UTF-16BE and UTF-32BE.
o Application programmer can specify custom 8-bit to Unicode character mapping.
o A few more precise global metrics attributes have been added.
o Added some example programs and "ViewISO" tool showing all ISO-8859 encodings for a font face.
Check "release_notes" file in the distribution archive for the full list of changes.
