The first fix improves the algorithm for selecting a GDI font, especially on a non-English operating system. It corrects certain printing errors such as characters appearing too small, appearing too bold, or lacking fine details such as hooks at the end of long strokes. It also improves the performance of font selection in many cases.
The second fix corrects a flaw in the logic for caching font selection results so that the result of an expensive selection can be reused cheaply.
