Update freetype2 to 2.10.4

Authored by YakoYakoYokuYoku on Oct 20 2020, 10:08 PM.




  • 2.10.4
    • A heap buffer overflow has been found in the handling of embedded PNG bitmaps, introduced in FreeType version 2.6 (a.k.a. CVE-2020-15999).
  • 2.10.3
    • New flag FT_OUTLINE_OVERLAP'. If set, make the smooth rasterizer do 4x4 oversampling to mitigate artifacts in pixels partially covered by overlapping contours. If a glyph in a TrueType font has the OVERLAP_SIMPLE' or `OVERLAP_COMPOUND' bit set, FreeType automatically selects this rendering mode.

Test Plan

Opened up a PDF file, saw emails in Thunderbird, used FFmpeg to create an image with text and added a phrase to that image with ImageMagick.
