FreeType 2 is a software font engine that is designed to be small,
efficient, highly customizable and portable while capable of
producing high-quality output (glyph images). It can be used in
graphics libraries, display servers, font conversion tools, text
image generation tools, and many other products as well.

Note that FreeType 2 is a font service and doesn't provide APIs to
perform higher-level features, like text layout or graphics
processing (e.g., colored text rendering, "hollowing", etc.).
However, it greatly simplifies these tasks by providing a simple,
easy to use and uniform interface to access the content of font
files.

FreeType 2 is released under two open-source licenses: our own
BSD-like FreeType License and the GPL.
