FreeType 2.4.12

So, for a long time I have been checking an old FreeType site for updates and there has been nothing for the past couple years. It seems I missed some announcement that they have a new website, So here is the FreeType 2.4.12 framework.

They are actually now up to version 2.5.3. There are a few major changes. I'm thinking of making a static framework, for developers only. I never really thought about it until I saw an example recently, but it is possible to make a framework static instead of shared. FreeType is small enough and doesn't need external support files, and is not much used in what I package (GRASS, Matplotlib, MapServer if I ever update that) that it won't add much to those packages. I already use a static FreeType in Matplotlib. This will make end-user installation simpler.

Postgres 9.3.4 & PostGIS 2.1.2

Postgres 9.3.4 and PostGIS 2.1.2 are ready. They are next in the dropping Snow Leopard support progress.

I also removed the 32bit libraries from Postgres - this will affect developers, and specifically GRASS compilation, either you need to compile GRASS 64bit-only (lose TclTk NVIZ in 6.4) or configure without Postgres support.

QGIS 2.2-5 & GEOS 3.4.2-3

QGIS 2.2.0-5 should now work on Mavericks when the Qt frameworks are also installed.

I also updated Shapely in the GEOS Framework and fixed it so it will always load the GEOS framework even if there is another libgeos installed somewhere.

QGIS & Mavericks

I've already fixed a few packaging problems with QGIS 2.2. There is one problem with Mavericks: if you have installed the Qt frameworks, QGIS will crash. I'm looking into it, for now uninstall Qt if you want to run QGIS on Mavericks.
