Summary: Include Files and Libraries mandatory for Development
FontForge allows editing of outline and bitmap fonts. With it, you can
create new fonts or modify old ones. It also converts font formats and
can convert among PostScript, TrueType, OpenType, and CID-keyed fonts.

This subpackage contains all necessary include files and libraries needed
to develop applications that use FontForge libraries.






* Mon Jun 29 2020 Antonio Larrosa <>
  - Add patch to support transforming bitmap glyphs from python
    with one of the predefined transformations in fontforge.
    * add-bitmap-transform-support.patch
* Mon May 25 2020 Benjamin Greiner <>
  - add support-sphinx3.patch and fix-glossary.patch to allow
    python-Sphinx >= 3
* Wed Apr 15 2020 Antonio Larrosa <>
  - Update to version 20200314:
    * FontForge now has much improved stroke expansion functionality.
      The main change is that it actually works most of the time. New
      features include support for arbitrary convex nibs and the
      miter-clip and arc join styles from SVG 2. All functionality is
      accessible from the Python and native APIs.
    * Remove overlap handles certain important edge cases better.
    * The Python API now has a function called genericGlyphChange
      that matches the "Change Glyph" command in the GUI. See #4133
      for more details.
    * The Python API now has functions for getting Unicode script and
      for interrogating glyph boundaries.
    * One can now use text flags (rather than just numerical flags)
      when opening a font file via the Python API.
    * UFO import now outputs the note field properly.
    * SVG import is much more robust.
    * We have dropped most gnulib and autotools logic in favor of
      CMake, which dramatically simplifies the build system and just
      as dramatically improves build time.
    * As part of the switch to CMake, per the deprecation of
      Python 2, and per the lack of objections to the proposal on
      the mailing list, we have dropped support for building
      FontForge with Python 2 support. The non-build-system Python 2
      code remains, but it is neither tested nor maintained nor
      supported and is likely to follow a trajectory of decay and
      then removal.
    * Documentation is now rendered in Sphinx, which makes
      maintenance and improvement easier.
    * Translations now happen on crowdin, which makes contributions
    * We got such a contribution for Croatian.
    * Character view point coloring is more consistent, and preview
      fills support transparency.
    * The user can now move and close tabs in the character view.
    * The metrics view now allows for entry of negative kerning
      values and runs a bit more smoothly.
    * There is now a warning when a user is about to discard an
      unsaved script.
    * We fixed bugs all over, as always, with particular attention
      given to the metrics view, Python, Spiro, and high-resolution
    * Notes on build system changes:
      + libgutils and libgunicode have been combined into
      + libgdraw and libfontforgeexe have been combined into the
      fontforge executable itself
      + No development files are installed (headers, or pkg-config).
      This is because we do not provide a stable API or ABI to work
      against, nor are the headers actually well configured to be
      used externally. We are also not aware of any maintained
      product that compiles against FontForge itself.
    * Fixes use-after-free (heap) in the SFD_GetFontMetaData()
      function and fix NULL pointer dereference in the
      SFDGetSpiros() and SFD_AssignLookups() function(bnc#1160220,
      bnc#1160236, CVE-2020-5395, CVE-2020-5496).
