All this week, we will be testing for i18n features in Fedora 29. Those are as follows:
- Liberation Fonts 2 – Liberation 2.00.3 has wider character coverage and automated hinting instructions.
- CJK Default To Noto Fonts –This change will provides better quality of rendering for all of Chinese, Japanese and Korean characters. We will now have default installed Serif face for Japanese and Korean, and also a Monospace face for all of CJK languages and keep consistencies in look among those typefaces.
- IBUS 1.5.19 – Now users can type either emoji annotation or Unicode names on the current application and see the composing text before the final committed text is output.
How to participate
Though it is a test day, we normally keep it on for the whole week. If you don’t have time tomorrow, feel free to complete it in the coming few days and upload your test results.
Let’s test and make sure this works well for our users!
