Description Eyal Rozenberg 2022-12-11 21:56:01 UTC
Some of the Arabic fonts we currently bundle with LO are outdated versions.

Example: Noto Naskh Arabic Medium.
Bundled version (with the latest nightly): 1.07
Latest version: 2.016


the version we bundle is 8 years old (!)

We should check all of our Arabic fonts (and perhaps other bundled fonts?) against their official sources - right now, and also periodically, at least once before every major release, and perhaps once before every minor release.
