Hello everyone,

My name is Erion Omeri. I chose "omerion" for a username on the wiki. I am a
Masters Computer Science (AI) student at http://www.DePaul.edu, in Chicago.
I will be working on the *CDXL task to qualify *

And, I proposed to work on the following during the summer :
 Improve subtitle support

   - Add text-to-bitmap conversion functions
   - One with hard-coded bitmaps for characters
   - One that utilizes freetype
   - Function used will be chosen upon compilation

Adjust existing subtitle support to new ABI

   - ABI change:

I am very willing to help, and look forward to working with you guys.
If you have any pointers to help me keep in the right direction, they're

Thanks in advance,
