Thanks to Adobe's contribution of their CFF engine, FreeType has excellent rasterization of CFF fonts. However, Type 1 fonts, a similar PostScript font format, has relatively poor rasterization results. This is due to Type 1 being a legacy format, coupled with lack of maintenance for the corresponding module in FreeType. By extending the new CFF module, we can leverage its high quality output for an old format like Type 1.
