Previously the error reported by: my $font = Imager::Font->new(file = 'foo.ttf') or die Imager->errstr; when there is no driver enabled for that format was: Font type not found Now, if the format is a known extension: No font drivers enabled that can support this file, rebuild Imager with any of ft2 (Freetype 2.x), tt (Freetype 1.x) to use this font file or if there's no driver at all: No font type found for fontfiles/dcr10.afm The first message is very wordy, but should mean that a developer won't be confused by the message, for example: http://perlmonks.org/?node_id=620796
