Hmm, that's strange. I'm rather surprised it was working until then.
the change of the trigger should be happened earlier than it. I'm not
sure who deals with "Fixed [Misc]" thing though, that just looks like
they missed an alias of it to "Fixed" because it is now "Misc Fixed"
on freetype built with PCF_CONFIG_OPTION_LONG_FAMILY_NAMES. I think
you can see "Misc Fixed" on the font list. that is correct family
name. that's not a bug.
If you like the previous behavior, you just need to build freetype
without that option.
