Description Roozbeh Pournader 2006-11-19 11:29:28 EST
Please update DejaVu LGC fonts in Rawhide to version 2.12. As this release has
Latin ligatures (fi, fl, etc.) enabled, it may trigger unexpected cases in
applications and rendering engines, which helps in spotting them and fixing the
text rendering bugs.

Hi Roozbeh

Actually I already planned to push dejavu-full 2.12 only in devel because of the
ligatures. Though so far no one has complained about the rc I pushed a few days
ago. I guess if not too many people hit it 2.13 will be devel + FE6
Comment 2 Behdad Esfahbod 2006-11-21 15:02:29 EST
Any reason to not wait for 2.13 or later?
And I don't see much reason to push a DejaVu LGC update for FE6.
For now, we can't push a dejavu-lgc with the ligatures enabled unless I succeed
in fixing firefox+pango's rendering of them.

I am only suggesting pushing an update for Rawhide.

I've almost fixed the Firefox+Pango ligature problem in my tree btw.  It doesn't
look overlapping anymore.

2.13 is in rawhide now
