It's worth to mention that this version enables infinality-like subpixel rendering but completely dumps all the fine tuning previously available for infinality. So if one had a bunch of INFINALITY_FT* settings, the new version doesn't support them at all.

This might be of interest to anyone still wondering about the status of this package.

Alternatively to downgrading harfbuzz, you can rebuild the current version of harfbuzz against freetype2-infinality.

I just downgrade my harfbuz to 1.7.4.

This package causes breakage with the latest harfbuz (1.7.4-1 -> 1.7.5-1) update.

For people who are googling the error code: if you're getting something like "/usr/lib/libharfbuzz.so.0 undefined reference FT_Done_MM_Var" you need to install freetype 2.9, cairo, and fontconfig from the Arch repos.

2.8-1 conflicts with ffmpeg (which requires libfreetype.so=6-64) - what can be done here? Thanks!

So, this is the replace of infinality by bohoomil?
