libXft is the client side font rendering library, using libfreetype,
libX11, and the X Render extension to display anti-aliased text.

Notable changes in this release include:

 - Subpixel LCD text rendering improvements

 - Dropped support for building against versions of freetype2, fontconfig & 
   libXrender that pre-dated pkgconfig support.

 - Raised minimum required versions to freetype2 2.1.6 & fontconfig 2.5.92.

plus of course assorted bug fixes and build configuration improvements.
