I'm not informed on that specifically, but usually forks are made for
license issues, so that may be the "problem".

Try comparing Google and Liberation Fonts licenses if you wish, and if
you'll do please report to us as well.

I'd appreciate, at least  ;)

Hi, this must be an old topic but I wonder why LibreOffice does not use
the full set of google croscore fonts.

Currently, LibreOffice includes Caladea and Carlito replacing Cambria and
Calibri fonts. However, LibreOffice does not include the fonts Arimo, Tinos
and Cousine (replacing Arial, Times New Roman and Courier), from my point
of view and testing, google fonts do a better job than the liberation
fonts: better visualization, metric gauge more compatible with microsoft
fonts, increased support glyph, etc.

 From what I've read, since version 2.0 of Liberation Fons is a fork of
google croscore fonts ... but in practice do not appear.

Is there any reason to prefer Liberation fonts over google croscore fonts?

Which version of LibreOffice started including the Caladea and Carlito fonts?

I just installed Ubuntu 14.04 on my desktop [replacing Linux Mint for printer issues] and it installs 4.2.x. I had 4.4.x installed before and it did not install those fonts. I copied the .font folder and made sure my font were re installed after the OS replacement was finished.

So whatever version of 4.4,x I was using did not have those fonts included, I wonder which version does.
