The latest major release of Libreoffice, version 3.4, besides all the many improvements, speadups and fixes from this development cycle, provides various very nice font-related goodies:
  • a better font menu with previews for complex scripts and improved alignements of the entries
  • better font rendering via Cairo
  • integration of the improved and much faster Graphite2 smart font engine essential for many languages

A huge thank you to the Document Foundation and all developers involved for their very valuable work!
