Bug Description

Hi!
I've just translated Gweled into Georgian(ka) language.
It's all working well, as I could see (except for some missing strings, but that's fixed in future 0.9, right?)...

The only problem is that fonts:
font_24_20.png
and
font_48_40.png
do not contain Georgian fonts. They are:
ა ბ გ დ ე ვ ზ თ ი კ ლ
მ ნ ო პ ჟ რ ს ტ უ ფ ქ
ღ ყ შ ჩ ც ძ წ ჭ ხ ჯ ჰ

Which is according to Unicode Standard v6 range : from U+10D0 ---> U+10F0

I've attached a screenshot to clearly show what I'm talking about. :)

If You fix this, please use DejaVu Sans, Book type font.

Thank You for Your time!

This is an important problem with non Latin languages. Actually I'm busy with finding other fonts with better shape and more glyphs for the 0.9 release (that include some great new effects).

Great news!
If You're looking for new font, I'd suggest using DejaVu font family, as it's published under free license AND it contains a whole lot of glyphs.
Here's the site:

Good luck!

To use system fonts (whitch contains a lot of oriental symbols) is need to have Cairo rendering.

Delayed to 0.10. All graphic strings are forced to english language (there are only one relevant).
