Updated pango packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Pango is a library for laying out and rendering of text, with an emphasis on internationalization. Pango forms the core of text and font handling for GTK+ widget toolkit.

Bug Fix

Due to a regression in the pangoft2 module, an incorrect calculation caused that the approximate width of a character was reported as zero. Consequently, some applications using the Pango library failed with an assertion. With this update, the approximate character width is always set correctly and the failures no longer occur.
User of pango should upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
