Since this seems to be a common request, I'll look at implementing this soon (I was going to say after the release, but with the delay, well, we'll see :).

Good news.

 It's indeed a great news.


* Performance
(for back-art, but most of it applies to back-xlib as well)


Which characters you use in a text doesn't have any principle effect on the performance. However, there are a lot of caches involved, and that might have an effect.


 As some people ask me about the preformance of Chinese system,
 I would like to clarify something.
 First, I mention "slow" because it is noticable,
 but it does not prevent me from normal use.
Second, it happends on a lot of application/toolkit/platform/OS I ever used.
 Even the Mac is slow when handling a lot of Chinese text.
 (IE on windows is fast by the way. :)
I'm comparing the Chinese vs latin, not GNUstep vs other system (windows, GTK, etc).
 Therefore, GNUstep with Chinese does not slower than any other system.
 I think it always involves in cache and optimization.
The reason that I mention the performance with Chinese is because I notice it,
 not because I complain it. Kind of used to it.
 Hope people won't have an impression that text system of GNUstep is slow.
 It's not, and it is not optimized for CJK yet.
