More interesting news from the NRSI. They are putting Graphite into OpenOffice.org 2:
"This project integrates the Graphite smart font rendering engine for complex non-roman scripts and writing systems into OpenOffice.org 2.0.0, the well-known cross-platform FLOSS office suite."
This is where Open Source really comes into its own, when you can extend a powerful application to make it really useful in the parts of the world where the normal font rendering software won't do what you need. It's still got a few rough edges, and is "not extensively tested", but it really opens up possibilities for people needing non-Roman script support.
