b=1033140 make speex_resampler declarations consistent with OUTSIDE_SPEEX implementation r=padenot Instead of defining OUTSIDE_SPEEX and RANDOM_PREFIX everywhere speex_resampler.h is included, it is easier to patch the header. Symbol names in gkmedias symbols.def are updated now that RANDOM_PREFIX is taking effect, and unused symbols are no longer exported.

   *   While FreeType's TrueType driver doesn't expose API functions by
   *   itself, it is possible to control its behaviour with @FT_Property_Set
   *   and @FT_Property_Get.  The following lists the available properties
   *   together with the necessary macros and structures.
   *
   *   The TrueType driver's module name is `truetype'.

   * @property:
   *   interpreter-version
   *
   * @description:
   *   Currently, two versions are available, representing the bytecode
   *   interpreter with and without subpixel hinting support,
   *   respectively.  The default is subpixel support if
   *   TT_CONFIG_OPTION_SUBPIXEL_HINTING is defined, and no subpixel
   *   support otherwise (since it isn't available then).
   *
   *   If subpixel hinting is on, many TrueType bytecode instructions
   *   behave differently compared to B/W or grayscale rendering.  The
   *   main idea is to render at a much increased horizontal resolution,
   *   then sampling down the created output to subpixel precision.
   *   However, many older fonts are not suited to this and must be
   *   specially taken care of by applying (hardcoded) font-specific
   *   tweaks.
   *
   *   Details on subpixel hinting and some of the necessary tweaks can be
   *   found in Greg Hitchcock's whitepaper at
   *   `http://www.microsoft.com/typography/cleartype/truetypecleartype.aspx'.
   *
   *   The following example code demonstrates how to activate subpixel
   *   hinting (omitting the error handling).
   *
   *   {
   *     FT_Library  library;
   *     FT_Face     face;
   *     FT_UInt     interpreter_version = TT_INTERPRETER_VERSION_38;
   *
   *
   *     FT_Init_FreeType( &library );
   *
   *     FT_Property_Set( library, "truetype",
   *                               "interpreter-version",
   *                               &interpreter_version );
   *   }
   *
   * @note:
   *   This property can be used with @FT_Property_Get also.

  /**************************************************************************
   *
   * @enum:
   *   TT_INTERPRETER_VERSION_XXX
   *
   * @description:
   *   A list of constants used for the @interpreter-version property to
   *   select the hinting engine for Truetype fonts.
   *
   *   The numeric value in the constant names represents the version
   *   number as returned by the `GETINFO' bytecode instruction.
   *
   * @values:
   *   TT_INTERPRETER_VERSION_35 ::
   *     Version~35 corresponds to MS rasterizer v.1.7 as used e.g. in
   *     Windows~98; only grayscale and B/W rasterizing is supported.
   *
   *   TT_INTERPRETER_VERSION_38 ::
   *     Version~38 corresponds to MS rasterizer v.1.9; it is roughly
   *     equivalent to the hinting provided by DirectWrite ClearType (as
   *     can be found, for example, in the Internet Explorer~9 running on
   *     Windows~7).
   *
   * @note:
   *   This property controls the behaviour of the bytecode interpreter
   *   and thus how outlines get hinted.  It does *not* control how glyph
   *   get rasterized!  In particular, it does not control subpixel color
   *   filtering.
   *
   *   If FreeType has not been compiled with configuration option
   *   FT_CONFIG_OPTION_SUBPIXEL_HINTING, selecting version~38 causes an
   *   `FT_Err_Unimplemented_Feature' error.
   *
   *   Depending on the graphics framework, Microsoft uses different
   *   bytecode engines.  As a consequence, the version numbers returned by
   *   a call to the `GETINFO[1]' bytecode instruction are more convoluted
   *   than desired.
   *
   *   {
   *      framework   Windows version   result of GETINFO[1]
   *     ----------------------------------------------------
   *       GDI         before XP         35
   *       GDI         XP and later      37
   *       GDI+ old    before Vista      37
   *       GDI+ old    Vista, 7          38
   *       GDI+        after 7           40
   *       DWrite      before 8          39
   *       DWrite      8 and later       40
   *   }
   *
   *   Since FreeType doesn't provide all capabilities of DWrite ClearType,
   *   using version~38 seems justified.
