I have opened a new SqueakSource project for the Freetype plugin (FT2Plugin).

    location: 'http://www.squeaksource.com/FreetypePlugin'
    user: ''
    password: ''

This contains copies of all the Freetype-Plugin entries from the archival
repository at http://source.impara.de/freetype, as well as one additional
update from Mantis 7521.

Project administrators are Andy Tween, Bert Freudenberg and me. Developers
are everyone whose author initials appear in the original archive.

VMMaker class>>updateFromServer should now load FT2Plugin from the new
FreetypePlugin repository. A similar update will be needed for
ConfigurationOfVMMaker for Pharo.

For now the original package name Freetype-Plugin has been retained,
although I note that this conflicts with the current packaging of Freetype
in SqS/Freetype Plus, so a change to the package name may be in order.

FT2Plugin contains dependencies on Freetype. This is the reason that
I moved it to a separate SqueakSource project rather than include it
in the SqS/VMMaker repository.
