I am at the Libre Graphics Meeting in Toronto this week, which meant that I got to talk to GIMP and Inkscape developers after many years, and was reminded that Pango still doesn't make it easy to use custom (aka application fonts), and it still does not allow one to turn OpenType features on or off.  So I decided to give Pango some love...

Just did my part.
Help #FightEbola. For every $1 you donate, Google will donate $2 to four nonprofits doing critical humanitarian work in West Africa. Together we can do more. Donate now.

"The Endless River" is out.  Looks like a Pink Floyd; Sounds like a Pink Floyd; it IS Pink Floyd;  A 2014 version though...

Listened to it a few times. The vocal track is the weakest though, should have left that one out. 

It's nice relaxing music.

Since Android Lollipop is public now, I can express my excitement about a small feature I worked on with +Raph Levien: CSS-style fontFeatureSettings, aka arbitrary OpenType features, in TextView and XML.  Way to go, typography on Android!

Today, we are excited to release an early version of Noto Nastaliq Urdu.  Check out the announcement, and click through to my test page from there. +Roozbeh Pournader 
 
After over a year of hard work, Google just released an early version of our Noto Nastaliq Urdu font on the public repository of Noto, and as a web font on Google Fonts Early Access. http://goo.gl/fth4w2

These are slides from the talk +Roozbeh Pournader  and I did at Internationalization & Unicode Conference last week in Santa Clara, called: "Unicode, OpenType, and Fonts: Closing the Circle".  The slides were not designed for reading, and unfortunately IUC does not record talks :(.  We hope to do a recorded version later this year.

I copy John Hudson's words: "For sheer depth of content, #IUC38 was one of the best conferences I've attended."  Thank you everyone who made it so special!

He is called Roozbeh the White. And he's come back to you now - at the turn of the tide.

Here's the video of my GLyphy (glyphy.org) presentation at linux.conf.au earlier this month.
 
Since +Behdad Esfahbod hasn't shared it here. I will.

glyphy.org is doing text rasterizeration on the GPU in real time. Highly recommended video that will explain you all you need to know about it, and get you excited about the potential.
