This is a good news. Thank you for taking action. My upstream has recently
declared freetype < 1.9 obsolete and dangerous to use with their software, so
I was about to start looking into why we are still at 1.7. If I can help you
with packaging a more recent version I would be happy to do so. Unfortunately
I am not familiar with the CJK fonts, so can't help you there.

Please feel free to contact me privately if you'd like me to do something to
help you.

Best wishes,
