Dusty took her last breath this morning, 2014/4/24, 8:30. Farewell, Dusty, you are leaving me 16 years of memories. The dust-bunnies will miss you.
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, www.freetype.org. 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 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.
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.
