Attachments: DejaVu Serif Wrong Serbian Glyph vs. Constantia Right Serbian Glyph

Description Alessandro Ceschini 2010-11-29 13:41:06 UTC
DejaVu Serif has the wrong Serbian localized glyph for U+0433 CYRILLIC SMALL LETTER GHE in its italic form. Such glyph is accessed through the locl table as per the OpenType standard. I attached a pdf which shows the wrong glyph contained in DejaVu Serif contrasted with the correct glyph contained in Constantia, a font included in Windows Vista/7.

I fixed this in SVN. The fix should be included in the next release.
Comment 3 Alessandro Ceschini 2010-11-30 12:31:02 UTC
Please excuse my ignorance, what's SVN? If I understood you well, you mean you were already aware of this flaw? So we should consider this bug as solved?
Thank you for your interest.

SVN = subversion = our repository, where we keep the latest version of the font (version not as in the versions we release). If someone made a patch, he'll commit it to SVN so it becomes available to everyone else.

Eugeniy made a patch to fix this bug today after seeing this bug report, and committed it to SVN. Thus the bug is solved and marked "fixed". It also means that next time we make a release, this bug will be fixed for you as well.
