11.04 beta has a regression in the sense that it did not include the patch. Upstream maintainer has refused to update (Comments at pango bugs indicated in bug description), as harfbuzz-ng is under development. As there is no clarity on target date of harfbuzz-ng for indic, it will be useful to have pango updated locally within Ubuntu using the patch already submitted.
