A binary FreeType 2 library distribution for Microsoft Windows. The product is aimed at developers (not at end-users).
The current release is built with using freetype-2.4.11. The only x86 version is available at the moment.
Note: Use the header files in the archive on your project. While most files are the same as the original FreeType 2 sources, some header files are changed to cooperate with the DLLs.
Your program that uses the DLLs of the library will also require the C run-time library.
The release build DLL (freetype.dll) requires msvcr100.dll and the debug build DLL (freetyped.dll) requires msvcr100d.dll. If you have Visual Studio 2010 in your system, you already have them too. The release build run-time library, msvcr100.dll is redistributable. You (and end-users) can also get them as a setup program from “Download: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86)” on the Microsoft Download Center.
See “Redistributing Visual C++ Files” on MSDN about the details of redistributing run-time libraries.
Pre-compiled binaries are included in the archive. You may re-build them by building builds\win32\vc2010\freetype.sln yourself.
Note: The archive doesn't contain static library built with /MD or DLL built with /MT.
The license terms of the distribution follows the original one. i.e. You can choose the one which suits your project from two licesnes: the FreeType License or the GNU General Public License (GPL), version 2.
