Hi Dimitri,

I just upgraded from to 1.8.4 and got the following message:

Warning: doxygen no longer ships with the FreeSans font.
You may want to clear or change DOT_FONTPATH.
Otherwise you run the risk that the wrong font is being used for dot generated graphs.

The DOT_FONTPATH variable was empty, so the real cause for this warning was that DOT_FONTNAME was still set to FreeSans.

I would change the sentence "You may want to clear or change DOT_FONTPATH." to "You may want to clear or change DOT_FONTNAME.", which was what I had to do to get rid of the warning.

Thanks in advance.
