KungFooMasta, what is the purpose of the FreeType 2.3.5 library. Do you plan to keep it on the 0.9.6 final version of QuickGUI? Do you plan to add other libraries?
Where do you see the FreeType library being used? I made an attempt to do my own font using FreeType, but the benefits of using Ogre::Font class outweighed my own implementation. As far as I know, FreeType is not included as part of v0.9.6 beta.
FreeType is an open source library used for rendering various font types, including TrueType Fonts.
FreeType library is referenced in the project properties and all its header files are in QuickGUI include directory. Besides, it is included on QuickGUIFontManager.h and QuickGUIGlyphSet.h. If you are not currently using the library, may I delete its references? VisulStudio is showing a lot of warnings related to it...
ah! I made changes locally, but I guess it was after I released beta. FontManager and Glyphset .h/.cpp can be erased entirely.
On another note, have you found any issues with the library currently? I have made a lot of additional changes post beta, but always up to improve more before the release.
You are doin a great job, KungFooMasta! The new 0.9.6 version is much faster. Its performance (in terms of FPS) is equivalent to the newer version of CEGUI, in our projects. In addition, the API is getting better every version! QuickGUI API is easier to use and more productive than CEGUI one, in my opinion.
