hypnosec (2231454) writes "Adobe, in co-operation with Google and the FreeType project, has open-sourced its advanced CFF (Compact Font Format) rasterizer and released it for beta test. Adobe’s CFF engine is an advanced rasterizer for the Compact Font Format as it produces quality text display that is "more faithful to the typeface design" ideal for small sized displays being used by over a billion devices."

  • ul
  • li
  • dl
