tldr: no, but upstream is aware and working on it.

There are quite a few issues opened on upstream github tracker either
by me or by Debian maintainer. The main problem is that upstream checks
that rendering output matches their generated images. This changes
slightly with different versions of freetype. As a workaround, I
reintroduced a certain base tolerance in order not to add specific
tolerance value to each failing test (there are ~900 failing due to
slight rendering differences). Then, there are some arch-specific
issues, mainly on ARM.

The update is necessary as there are no more releases planned for
the 1.5.x branch.
