Description of Problem:
freetype-2.0.3 in rawhide and roswell exhibits a known problem with font
Problem is fixed in freetype-2.0.4. See
Steps to Reproduce:
1. (when using an application that rotates text, such as dot from graphviz
rpms on www.graphviz.org)
A significant amount of code changed from 2.0.3 to 2.0.4. I have built
new freetype 2.0.4 packages, but not put them into rawhide as of yet.
I will close the report once they are put into rawhide, which will likely
not be soon. If you would like, I can make them available privately.
Just update this report indicating your preference.
I see that there was a new rawhide release yesterday which contained
freetype-2.0.4. I'll test today, but my assumption is that this will
RESOLVE this bug.
freetype-2.0.4-2 is now built. It will appear in rawhide soon.
