bug #484437: CVE-2006-1861 freetype: multiple integer overflow vulnerabilities
bug #240200: CVE-2007-2754 freetype integer overflow
These old issues were previously fixed in FT2, but parts apply to FT1 as well. The fixes were included in RHEL freetype packages update (which contain both FT1 and FT2 on RHEL-2.1 - RHEL-4):
All current Fedora branches should contain same FT1 version with identical patches, so this should apply to all.

freetype1-1.4-0.8.pre.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
Would you please fix a typo ("obsolote") in the package description and make it more obvious that it is an old-old library by moving the second paragraph upfront?
I am curious which package still uses it and why we cannot drop this old library.
Nobody should use it any longer.

Looks like only MagicPoint now.
Ah, looks like Ajax already did few steps to get rid of that last dependency either:
freetype1 is a dead package in F12. We could remove it in F11 without too much hassle but I didn't think it was worth it given how close to release we are.
