Comment 8 Caius Chance 2008-03-25 02:04:37 UTC
According to the testing, the issue had been fixed.

You may feel the dots are still no aligned on the following attached pictures.
However, they are 'illusions' of human eyes. This could be proved with dragging
a horizontal lines to measure by photo editing softwares like Photoshop (r) or GIMP.

The latest version of font will be updated on rawhide very soon.

There is also an issue for the Romanian language; please see bug #440992


Comment 22 Cody Boisclair 2008-04-10 14:10:44 UTC
Is there a .tar.gz version on the way for us non-RH-using folks? Or should I generate one using alien?

Comment 23 Cody Boisclair 2008-04-10 14:14:03 UTC
Never mind; I managed to get the .tar.gz out of the source file. But it (and a zip version) should still be 
made available for posting on http://www.redhat.com/promo/fonts/.

Reply to comment #22. Sorry about that.

Attaching source tarball in bugzilla as official way for public to download is
not supposed to be the case, because it should be hosted in public servers but
not bugzilla.

There are requests from Fedora community to host this font package. We are
looking at working on that after Fedora 9 released.

For people who are keen on testing the latest version, please download this
attached file.

I don't have the permission on the website. It is managed by another team and we
have coherent communication to update the versions on
http://www.redhat.com/promo/fonts/. Please kindly be patient.

Finally, thank you very much for supporting on our commitment to
liberation-fonts by using it. :)
