A small correction: FreeType has *nothing* to do with Linux in
particular. It is written in ANSI C and supports all platforms. We
have users for Mac and Windows also.

FreeType 1.x (as can be found in the current snapshot; note that there
is no further development on the 1.x series) has full GSUB and GPOS

There is no complex script support in FreeType 2. Instead, we have
started to work on a text layout engine built on top of FreeType 2.
