Re: the big jump forward


These are very good news and looking at the kind of tests that you are
asking for, I'm willing to check this out.

Right now my machine is a Fedora Core 4 system with all the official
updates installed.  Is it possible for you to set up an RPM package
somewhere for this new version of fontconfig to be installed on a FC4
system?  or this is for rawhide only?  What version of GTK+ would be

If you can't do that, is it possible to compile fontconfig from source
overwriting the existing installation?

Due to bandwidth limits I can't afford updating to rawhide every day.

Thanx for your hard work,
