1.153. lohit-tamil-fonts

An updated lohit-tamil-fonts package that fixes a display issue in the asterisk glyph ('*' -- Unicode U+002A) is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The lohit-tamil-fonts package provides a free Tamil script TrueType and OpenType font.
Bug Fix
The Latin asterisk glyph ('*' -- ASCII 0x2A; Unicode U+002A) was over-sized relative to the same glyph as presented in other non-Latin scripts which include Latin glyphs (eg Lohit Devanagari). With this update, the asterisk has been re-drawn to match the glyph included with Lohit Devanagari. This re-drawing also ensures the asterisk matches the typographic 'color' of the Tamil script characters and the other Latin glyphs included with this typeface.
Users should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
