The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* freetype2-demos-2.10.4-2
* libfreetype6-2.10.4-2
* libfreetype-devel-2.10.4-2
* libfreetype-doc-2.10.4-2

FreeType 2 is a software font engine that is designed to be small,
efficient, and highly customizable while capable of producing
high-quality output (glyph images).

This is a rebuild of 2.10.4-1 with an upstream patch to fix a memory
leak.  Release 2.10.4-1 was a security update, fixing a heap buffer
overflow in the handling of embedded PNG bitmaps that was introduced
in FreeType2 version 2.6.
