Side-by-side comparison of the font in Microsoft Word 2010 and LibreOffice
LibreOffice does not correctly space the font FreeSans, available for download at http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/freefont/. The displays in the image are roughly the same text, 14 pt and 280% zoom, yet LibreOffice clearly spaces the font more than is specified. This occurs with both the OpenType and TrueType versions of the font. This can be reproduced simply by installing the font and typing any text in both LibreOffice and Word.

do you still reproduce bug with recent 4.1.5 or 4.2.0 releases?
