Version 2.42.3


- gitlab#197 - New requirement: We now require Freetype2 2.9.0, which
  fixes font rendering bugs.  The test reference PNGs have been
  regenerated with this version.  You may see changes in font

Well, I stand corrected. It turns out librsvg 2.42.3 requires (via pkgconfig) freetype2 >= 20.0.14 which is the pkgconfig version returned by freetype 2.8. Perhaps a typo in their NEWS item. The versioning does seem to be a bit confusing.

So not an urgent item because of librsvg 2.42.3 which builds correctly and tests with only one failure out of 128 SVGs.

# Don't update freetype to 2.8.1 or later until after wine-crossover includes this fix:
