DejaVu fonts 1.6 were released. Download them from http://dejavu.sf.net.
In this release lots of bugs were fixed: monospace typefaces are
recognized as monospaced, fonts no longer report themselves as Bitstream
and their appearance is now as close to original Bitstream Vera as
possible (line height is the same as in original and even infamous "worse
than Vera" bug was partially fixed).
Also experimental Serif Oblique and Serif Bold Oblique typefaces were
added. New glyph visiblespace (U+2423) was added, comma accent (U+0326)
was made smaller and Cyrillic D and d were corrected.
Have a nice day.
