i18n test day

Hi,

I was about to open a ticket for i18n test day next meeting, but that topic might be not suitable to discuss in
the limited time frame. so that may be a good idea to have a (pre-)discussion here and take it into the
meeting as needed.

The tasks we need to do prior to run the test day, is:

* fix the date
* update the test cases for f21
* review

Any other suggestions or comments are welcome.

 It is slightly late but I think it is still useful and important
 for the Fedora i18n Project to review and check the
 http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Workstation/Technical_Specification
 for i18n support and issues. I believe there is also a draft package list.

 We can post any feedback or comments to the Fedora desktop list or
 open a ticket on the Workstation WG trac.

system-config-language-2.1.0 released

Hi,
   It took some time but finally we have a working 
system-config-language[1] tool in Fedora rawhide. The major changes 
happened from 1.4.1 release to this 2.1.0 release are
1) system-config-language GUI is re-written using PyGobject3 API's.
2) system-config-language checks packages to install for any language 
using yum-langpacks instead of groups in comps file.
3) system-config-language now uses Packagekit API to install packages.
4) system-config-language migrated from usermode to Policykit.

There is one more release coming soon that will add translations and 
some enhancements to langpack packages installation code module.

Regards,
Parag.

[Announce] Liberation fonts version 2 now available on github as well

Hi All,
    
    Liberation is very special fonts in opensource world. It has served open source communities for more that 7 years. It has got an excellent user base.

    We released liberation 2.0 two years back. Though we reverted this change in Fedora due to mismatch of hinting bytecode with liberation1. Liberation 2 is actively used with Libreoffice for last 2+ years, since it has got a better character coverage.

     Recently i had conversation with Wikimedia developer Ryan Kaldari where he mentioned "We evaluated numerous fonts and Liberation Sans had the highest overall score of all the FOSS sans-serif fonts we evaluated."

    There was an issues [1] with positioning of accent marks which we have fixed. After it i believe Wikipedia is also now using Liberation fonts from bug. [2]

   For better collaboration for upcoming development of liberation 2, we have now made it available on github. [3] Existing fedorahosted git will be still there but i will mostly use it only for liberation 1.07 and liberation 2.0 development will happen on github and i will just sync fedorahosted git with github periodically.

Regards,
Pravin Satpute

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
