Lohit Gujarati font (since the hinting distorts some glyphs quite
badly). Sort directory entries while scanning them from disk;
prevents Heisenbugs due to file ordering in a directory (due to Egmont
Koblinger). Fix Wine's problem with finding fonts. (Reported by
Bernhard Rosenkraenzer.) Fix the issues with GNU libiconv vs. libc
iconv (which especially appear on Solarii); patch by Behdad Esfahbod,
approach suggested by Tim Mooney.
fc-cat can take directories as input and creates old-style fonts.cache
fc-cache takes -r --really-force which blows away all old caches and
Robustness fixes, integer overflow fixes (notably to cache handling
code), toast broken global cache files.

fontconfig to treat A-X fonts differently from A-Y fonts; please mail
the fontconfig list if this causes any problems.

The 2.2.93 release was prepared with a broken libtool which created
the shared library without the '.so' in the file names.
This is the third prerelease of fontconfig 2.3. Significant changes from
2.2.92 are:
o Use new FreeType #include syntax
o use y_ppem field instead of 'height' in bitmap sizes rec -
FreeType changed the semantics. Still uses height for
older versions of FreeType
o Don't construct program manuals unless docbook is available
o make distcheck work
o Switch to SGML manuals
o Add FC_DUAL width spacing value
o Add FcFini to close out fontconfig and release all memory
This is the third public release of fontconfig, a font configuration and
customization library. Fontconfig is designed to locate fonts within the
system and select them according to requirements specified by applications.
Fontconfig is not a rasterization library, nor does it impose a particular
rasterization library on the application. The X-specific library
'Xft' uses fontconfig along with freetype to specify and rasterize fonts.
