** BDF fonts no longer supported on MS-Windows.
The font backend was completely rewritten for this release. The focus
on Windows has been getting acceptable performance and full unicode
support, including complex script shaping for native Windows fonts. A
rewrite of the BDF font support has not happened due to lack of time
and developers. If demand still exists for such a backend even with
the improved language support for native Windows fonts, future
development in this direction will most likely be based on the
freetype library, giving access to a wider range of font formats.
