Is there still something missing prior to submission of FT2.8 to factory? Previously missing dependency is in factory, I think?

Add, pleace, subpackage "freetype2-profile-tti35" with file "/etc/profile.d/freetype2.sh" containing: export FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="truetype:interpreter-version=35" . This should have been done after version 2.7, but I do not know how to add it to the Factory now without updating the package to the latest version.

I can reproduce the bug with evince too and export FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="truetype:interpreter-version=35" does not help. Can you report this to poppler bugzilla please?

Never mind, upstream has a fix already :-)

It seems to me that writing a bug report is necessary in the event that the malfunction has already got into the Factory. And when this has not happened yet, it is better to inform the mentor about it promptly so that it can be corrected promptly. It seems to me that now there is nothing to report about? If you think otherwise, I can write a bug report.

About /etc/profile.d/freetype2.sh export FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="truetype:interpreter-version=35"

I much more like fullhint with tti35 and it would be great to be able to return it to the regular installation of one package.

If freetype2 2.9 is accepted in Factory then I myself can write SR. The only thing I do not know how to choose the right Group: for this package, I can not find a similar package. The problem is if your SR is declined, as it was with 2.8, how will I send it?

Or you asked to write a bug report on this occasion?

Can you show me the rendering difference between truetype:interpreter-version=35 and the default please?

Okey, https://yadi.sk/d/Ge9_67SG3RNVFE link to archive with screenshots, fonts and styles. My link for quick view (may be not work, when my notebook shutdown) https://ilya.pp.ua/Arial-0-35.png https://ilya.pp.ua/Arial-0-40.png https://ilya.pp.ua/Arial-1-35.png https://ilya.pp.ua/Arial-1-40.png https://ilya.pp.ua/Arial-2-35.png https://ilya.pp.ua/Arial-2-40.png https://ilya.pp.ua/Arial-3-35.png https://ilya.pp.ua/Arial-3-40.png https://ilya.pp.ua/Arial-4-35.png https://ilya.pp.ua/Arial-4-40.png

The text with fullhint on tti40 (default) looks blurry, blurry, soapy, shaded and not sharp. On tti35 with fullhint the text is very clear, contrast, which is convenient and pleasant to read. On tti40 with fullhint after a few minutes of reading such a text my eyes start to hurt. I've tried changing fonts, changing anti-aliasing styles, not combining full hint per sub-pixel, looking for a different font ... but the fullhint method is the most pleasant for my eyes, and Arial is the fittest font for fullhint.

The Arial font sample with fullhint with tti35 is not ideal, it's flat that it loses its thickness, but it's very ... clear, and I could not achieve such clarity and ease of reading with other fonts and methods of smoothing.

I see your point, I'll add a subpackage for v35 rendering profile.

Thank you! :-)
