The aim of this project is to integrate seamless support for the WOFF File Format 2.0 into FreeType so that these fonts can be recognized, decompressed, and loaded as any other SFNT font. This includes study and comparison of how SFNT fonts are wrapped into WOFF 1.0 and WOFF 2.0 files, exploration of existing libraries for WOFF 2.0 and Brotli compression, and finally, writing code to allow FreeType to handle WOFF 2.0 fonts.
