Someone recently asked me to add GNU FreeSerif to the list of default
fonts for my MathML font settings addon [1]. It turns out that,
according to the changelog, a MATH table was added in November 2013 ;
which means that it can be used for the MathML rendering in Gecko >= 31
[2]. This is great news since GNU FreeSerif seems to be
available/preinstalled in most Linux distributions and so that would
avoid the need for users to manually install math font [3]. However, the
latest release of GNU FreeSerif was in 2012, which leads to the
following question: when will the next version of GNU FreeSerif be released?
