Fonts and the FreeType Project

Now, version 2.x. The following paragraph is excerpted from FreeType Project; "FreeType 2 is a software font engine that is designed to be small, efficient, highly customizable, and portable while capable of producing high-quality output (glyph images). It can be used in graphics libraries, display servers, font conversion tools, text image generation tools, and many other products as well."

What makes it popular and I need to state it here, you may question? Probably, because it can be used in any proprietary or non-proprietary projects. That means you can write your application equipped with this library and sell it.(See FreeType license)
