FreeType-based font drawing library for X (unstripped)

Xft provides a client-side font API for X applications, making the FreeType font rasterizer available to X clients. Fontconfig is used for font specification resolution. Where available, the RENDER extension handles glyph drawing; otherwise, the core X protocol is used.

This package provides an unstripped shared object with debugging symbols, useful to provide a backtrace with symbol names in a debugger; this facilitates interpretation of core dumps, and aids in finding logic errors in programs using this library (or the library itself). The library is installed in /usr/lib/debug and can be used by placing that directory in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable when the code to be debugged is executed. Non-programmers will likely have little use for this package, and should use libxft2 instead.

Package version:2.1.14-2

  [ Cyril Brulebois ]
  * Add udeb needed for the graphical installer: libxft2-udeb.
  * Version/Bump some B-D to make sure the udeb gets its dependencies on
    the (recently-added) udebs rather
