Beta: fontconfig-2.8.0 freetype2-2.4.12

Unread postby diegel » Mon Jan 12, 2015 3:19 am

I was never happy with the current nekoware fontconfig, so I build a new one. I also updated libfreetype. For me the result works much better and faster than the current versions. Please test neko_fontconfig-2.8.0.tardist and neko_freetype2-2.4.12.tardist.

Works for me, as well as your Xft. Thank you!

ED: If you're using GTK2 apps, this is quite an improvement.

Thank you for testing. I would be nice if some more have a look at this, since it is a noticeable performance improvement for gtk2 tools like firefox3. I really like to see this packages in current.

A long time ago there was a sort of general agreement that any gcc-built nekoware would show that in the title ... could we continue that ?

I can do so, what is the correct package name in this case? neko_fontconfig-2.8.0_gcc.tardist? We have to rename a lot of packages then.

Thanks ! That would be great. There's a couple others in /current similar to that.

At the speed these are flying off the shelves, maybe this is not something we need to worry about :D

Both packages in beta are replaced by faster builds with more optimization now. They are gcc 4.7 build since both packages run not stable with mipspro -O3 optimization.
