Lohit2: Next one is Lohit Assamese and Bengali fonts improvement

Hi,

  In last six month we have completed Devanagari (Marathi and Nepali), Gujarati, Gurmukhi and Malayalam under lohit2 project [1]. We have done significant improvement in these fonts not only from technical perspective but also from standards perspective. I am confident enough to say Lohit follows all standards around fonts and Indian languages and scripts.

  I attended typoday.in [2] conference in last weekend and talked with people around on lohit2. Happy to see number of people in fonts industry are aware regarding Lohit fonts. Few people even used Lohit fonts during the workshop to demonstrate some points. Few people proposed enhancement by adding more ligature. So we all are going good :)

  This is time to do improvements in Lohit Assamese and Bengali. Followings are improvements we are looking for..
  • Removing not required ligatures.
  • Rewriting efficient open type tables.
  • Support to the "beng" and "bng2" open type script tags.
  • Building fonts through feature file (.fea)
  • Following AGL specification syntax.
  • Testing on Harfbuzz NG, Uniscribe(W8). 
  • Automated Testing Tool utilization


    One of the important task prior to development is to identify guidelines, specifications for Assamese and Bengali script. We do have TDIL documents available and will see if there is any other. With these improvements i am sure Lohit Assamese and Bengali can become standard reference font for upcoming Bengali fonts project.

    Need help from Assamese and Bengali language expert. I know few already and will ping them for more input during the developments. Development activity is going to happen in lohit2 [3] git. Feel free to report bug and propose enhancements.

Best Regards,
Pravin Satpute

[Announce] Released 2.94.0 version of the Lohit Devanagari (Lohit2 project)

Hi All,

    We identified couple of bugs against 2.93.0 release of lohit-devanagari. While more working on same bugs we saw some more opportunity for improvements from glyph positioning tables (GPOS) and using references of glyphs (reusing existing glyphs) rather than copying complete shape.

    Following improvements  done in this release:
  • Positioning lookups cleanup. (Removed 3 unnecessary lookups)
  • Improved grid fitting (GASP) table.
  • Renamed anchor points to DVAnchor, it will help in long term for making single Lohit font having all scripts.
  • Using copy reference instead of copying whole glyph points.
  • Auto test integrated with Makefile ($make test).
  • Added Santali language (sat) in fontconfig file.
  • Resolved #32: "सर्व्हिस does not render correctly"
  • Resolved #33: "improper rendering for word : "मञ्यांच्या""

   Updated lohit project page [1] for download details. Source tarball link [2], TTF tarball link [3] and webfonts format for Lohit is at [4].

   I will soon build this for Fedora. Feel free to report any issues in github[5]

   I am happy with each release we are moving towards the perfection.

Regards,
Pravin Satpute

Announcing 2.92.0 (Beta-1) release of Lohit Malayalam from lohit2 project

Hi All,

    Here comes the 2.92.0 release of Lohit Malayalam. We done number of improvements and bug fixes over the earlier release [1]. I am happy we able to resolve all reported bugs against alpha in 2.92.0 release.

    Following are the highlights:
  • We had around 9 below base glyphs not used in any lookup, we removed those glyphs.
  • Using "copy reference" for glyphs instead of copying whole glyph points in most of the places.
  • Sfd file size is now 384K, 2.91.0 release was 408K.
  • Renamed anchor point, it will help in long term for making single Lohit font having all scripts.
  • Removed Samvruthokaram ligature.
  • Resolved 10 issues reported on github [2]  : #35,#36,#37,#38,.#39,#40.#41,#42,#43,#44.
  • More test cases in test file.
  • Auto test integrated with Makefile ($make test)


    For this release special thanks to Santhosh Thottingal for his detailed review of Alpha. It helped lot to identify key issues.

    I feel this release is near to final release of Lohit Malayalam and we can consider this as a Beta.

    Our goal with Lohit2 is to make effective and efficient font which can be used as a reference for new font developments activity. We still need help from community to test it and make sure Lohit is following all standards.

    
    Updated lohit project page [3] for download details. Source tarball link [4], TTF tarball link [5] and webfonts format for Lohit is at [6].

    Feel free to report any issue AT github. [7]

Announcing alpha release of lohit-malayalam 2.91.0 from lohit2 project

Hi All,

    Glad to announce alpha release of lohit-malayalam 2.91.0 from lohit2 project[1]. As we planned earlier [2] indeed this is lightest Malayalam modern script font around with just 214 glyphs and 11 open type table.

    We have done following improvements in Alpha version over the 2.5.4 release.
  • Reduced number of glyphs nearly by 25%
  • Open type Looksup are reduced by 45%
  • Supporting mlm2 and mlym specifications.
  • Testing on Harfbuzz NG and Uniscribe (W8)
  • Followed AGL syntax with User friendly glyph names.
  • Improved GASP table (grid-fitting)
  • TTF build from feature file.

    Updated lohit project page [3] for download details. Source tarball link [4], TTF tarball link [5] and webfonts format for Lohit is at [6].

    I would like to say thanks to Ani for her help in testing stuff, Shriramana for reporting important bugs from standard perspective and Sneha for making this happen :)

    As this is alpha release need your help for testing it and making it more perfect. I am still doubtful that we might have missed some important exceptions of Malayalam script so looking forward to fix them in coming releases.

    By next week this release will be available in Fedora 20 and Rawhide.

Cheers,
Pravin Satpute
