fontimage is a very simple font renderer that reads a font file and outputs a png image with a text string rendered with that font.



060511 A bugfix release, version 0.2.3 is available. It fixes one embarrasing mistake and one strange behaviour in freetype. The first problem causes random failures and the second caused the size of the image to be miscalculated, leading to clipping.

060428 The first public release, version 0.2 is available. Some obvious things are missing, but is's already quite useable.
