This is interesting! I would like to follow the development when support for woff2 is implemented.

It would provide an idea of where and how things work in the large codebase.

WOFF2 is still a draft and not finalized.  As soon as this happens, we are going to support it.

Of course, if you want to contribute preliminary support, please provide patches :-)

FreeType doesn't seem to support the WOFF2 format, I've only been able to find a mailing-list message [1] about that. Is there anything new about that?
