commit 2c4546adc0bcf78c07d372591cbf38fef22deee2
Author: Lars Wendler <polynomial-c@gentoo.org>
Date:   Sat May 13 23:37:58 2017

    media-libs/freetype: Security bump to version 2.8 (bug #616730).

    Package-Manager: Portage-2.3.5, Repoman-2.3.2


This release also introduced a bunch of new features and some changes in the hinting engines so I'd like to wait one or two days (in case some new bugs get found) before I call for stabilization.

Comment 11 Andrew Petelin 2017-05-18 17:49:03 UTC
After updating from freetype-2.7.1-r2 to 2.8, I noticed 'Terminus' font was renamed and became 'xos4 Terminus', so font settings became inconsistent in some end-user GUI applications using this font: terminal emulators, gvim, gitk.

freetype-2.7.1-r2:

> $ fc-list | grep -i terminus
> /usr/share/fonts/terminus/ter-x18n.pcf.gz: Terminus:style=Regular
> ...
> /usr/share/fonts/terminus/ter-x12b.pcf.gz: Terminus:style=Bold
> ...

freetype-2.8:

> $ fc-list | grep -i terminus
> /usr/share/fonts/terminus/ter-x18n.pcf.gz: xos4 Terminus:style=Regular
> ...
> /usr/share/fonts/terminus/ter-x12b.pcf.gz: xos4 Terminus:style=Bold
> ...

Was it intended, or is it a bug?
