Hi All,

  Announcing the Lohit fonts 2.5.1 release. Following are the highlights.

- Support for Characters added in Unicode 6.0 in Devanagari, Bengali,
Malayalam and Oriya scripts and Devanagari Extended.

- Release of Lohit Marathi and Nepali with language specific shapes.
  Please note here Lohit Devanagari has localize characters for Marathi
and Nepali with locl feature of Open Type fonts and one can access it
with specific LANG.
  Still we have released these fonts since some rendering engine (qt,
icu) still not supporting locl feature and second is user using en_US
locale can not access language specific characters from Lohit Devanagari.

- Releasing lohit-ttf tarball consisting all lohit fonts ttf
  This is for easy installation of all lohit fonts together. One can now
download it and simply copy all ttf fonts in required folder.

- Major bugfixes in Telugu, Kannada, Assamese, Punjabi.

  For further details see Changelog released with each language.

  I am working on Lohit Tamil fonts will release it soon with Lohit
Tamil Classical font.
