At this time SDL_ttf is *only* a simple wrapper to FreeType 2.0 library. If
you need such effects you have to code them yourself using rasterized
surface or trying to play with FreeType itself and make them vector based.
Anyway does someone know about SDL_ttf update? I'm looking for support for
some kind of transformations like rotate, skew and scale. As far I know
FreeType supports them...

Subject: [SDL] *fancy* text with SDL_ttf?
I'm looking for tips on how to create *fancy* text using SDL_ttf. What I'm
after is text like Macromedia "Fireworks" can generate. Such effects as:
- Alpha blended drop shadow
- Alpha blended "glow" around text
- Textured text characters
- Variable size/colour outline around each character
oh...and with all the above nicely anti-aliased too :)
Can I use SDL_ttf for this or should I be looking elsewhere...?
Any tips/help/comments appreciated :)
