CHANGES BETWEEN 2.4.3 and 2.4.4


    - UVS support (TrueType/OpenType cmap format 14) support is fixed.
      This regression has been introduced in version 2.4.0.


    - Detect tricky fonts (e.g. MingLiU)  by the lengths and checksums
      of Type42-persistent subtables (`cvt ', `fpgm', and `prep') when
      a TrueType font without family name is given.  The previous fix,
      introduced in 2.4.3,  was too rigorous,  causing many  subsetted
      fonts (mainly  from PDF files) displayed badly  because FreeType
      forced  rendering with  the TrueType bytecode engine  instead of
      the autohinter.

    - Better support for 64bit platforms.

    - More fixes to improve handling of broken fonts.
