What's the plan for bug 305649?  If I read that bug correctly, then this won't run or compile on default pretty much anything Linux (up through and including FC4).

I'm not that worried about the "won't compile" case prior to our release of Fx3, since developers can install whatever versions they want in alternate locations, or update their systems appropriately.

We should talk to Linux distro types and see what their plans are for providing pango updates to their supported distributions, for the start-of-2007 timeframe.  Copying Blizzard here, who else?

There's no compilation issue any more, though there will most likely be performance issues on non-recent X servers that we'll have to work through.  We're back to Pango 1.6 as the baseline, so it will compile and run on anything that's recognizable as modern linux.

Simon,
Is the rendering problem of Pali (Classic Sinhala) related to this bug (fixed, of course) or different because it is essentially turning on Glyph Shaping for it though Pali is not a complex script being Latin-1 yet requires glyph rendering as the ligatures are in the OpenType Private area?
Microsoft's example here is interesting:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms776501.aspx
I wonder if that has some bearing to this problem? Or, am I totally in the dark on what is going on with Pali?

This is not even remotely the right bug for that question; please file a new bug for any issues with Pali.

Turning on glyph shaping for Latin text is fixed by bug 387969. See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Browser.display.auto_quality_min_font_size
