Soon releasing Lohit Marathi

Today is "International Mother Language Day" and what more i can do for my mother tongue than announcing soon release of Lohit-Marathi with the shapes specifically required for Marathi writing.

From Long time we are using Lohit Devanagari which is generic for all languages using Devanagari script. Recently found official document showing Marathi language need some specific shapes different than other languages like Hindi @ Bug (discussion happened during wikimedia hackthon and meet with redhat i18n team)

Official Document available at http://www.maharashtra.gov.in/GR/Marathi/2009/11/06/20091106130447001.pdf

Within next couple of week will release it, so people on any Linux or windows can install it and enjoy truly Marathi Lohit font.
