Letter Sha" (U+0428) with "Cyrillic Capital Letter Shcha" (U+0429).

Comment 4 Caius Chance 2007-10-31 20:12:54 EDT
Currently, Liberation Fonts modification is not authorized except by their
manufacturer.

This bug is tracked by bug# 304441 for prompting to the attention of Ascender.

Test Case
Comment 8 Caius Chance 2008-03-24 22:04:37 EDT
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.

Comment 22 Cody Boisclair 2008-04-10 10:10:44 EDT
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 10:14:03 EDT
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/.

Sources Tarball

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. :)
