Announcing 2.5.3 release of Lohit all fonts, see the Changelog for more details. Download links are available at https://fedorahosted.org/lohit.
From this release onwards we are planning to release separate lohit tarball with webfonts extensions, so users using Lohit as a web fonts wait for couple of more days for lohit-webfonts tarball.
Any suggestions for improvement/enhancements are welcome.
I see we have 36-no-bitmap-fedora.conf to disable/enable the
embedded bitmap font for certain fonts. it looks like a bit
laognauge specific configuration. so I think it would makes
sense if we use the condition of checking the language
instead of the speicfic fonts? so we don't need to add extra
fonts when it's available.

What renderer is matplotlib using now ? Because IIRC it could use cairo,
and cairo does support complex font shaping and modern font formats via
pango-cairo. 5-6 years ago at an xorg text summit people agreed to
converge on a single text rendering stack, and we are finally getting
there with QT and GTK both using harfbuzz-ng (+ libreoffice, firefox, etc)
The text stack should look like
upper layers : QT, gtk → pango, cairo → pango, etc
