Current Version STSF 0.4 (March 2003)


Standard Type Services Framework (STSF) is a portable open-source software framework for rendering typographically sophisticated text. STSF is font technology neutral. It supports all features of TrueType, Type1, TrueType GX and OpenType and provides a consistent name space to applications.


STSF is platform neutral. It has a porting layer that can be integrated with any imaging framework including, for example, the X Window System, Java2 SE Java2D, and Star/OpenOffice. STSF supports bitmap or vector image data formats. It communicates with any host graphics systems by means of a set of callback functions. The STSF architecture permits great flexibility in the X implementation.

  STSF was developed by Sun Microsystems, Inc. and made available for the open source community under the BSD license.
