This is a stable release providing new functionality as compared to Pango-1.4, while maintaining source and binary compatibility. Notable improvements in Pango since version 1.4 include:

* Ellipsization in PangoLayout; that is, for truncating lines by replacing text at the start middle or end of the line with an ellipsis (...)

* Custom font decoders; applications can specify how characters are converted to glyphs for particular fonts

* Support for setting a transformation matrix on a PangoContext and transformed rendering support for the FT2 backend

* Support for OpenType fonts in the Hebrew and Thai shapers
