FreeType 2.12 Released With Support For OT-SVG Fonts
Most significant to FreeType 2.12 is introducing support for OT-SVG (OpenType-SVG) fonts. OpenType-SVG fonts have been backed by the likes of Adobe and Mozilla for adding an SVG table to OpenType fonts. FreeType relies on an external SVG rendering engine via the svg-hooks property of OT-SVG. FreeType's demo programs are making use of librsvg as its SVG rendering engine.
FreeType 2.12 also updates its internal Zlib code, provides minor improvements to the build system, support for non-desktop Universal Windows Platforms, and has a wide variety of bug fixes.
