Here I'd like to ask what has happened in the meantime in regard to the groff's
features and plans stated in the mission statement like Knuth-Plass  algorithmy
for paragraph-based linebreaks, native support for TrueType, Open Type, and
other non-Type1 PostScript fonts, and improving Unicode support ?

A person is said to be established in self-realization and is called a
yogī [or mystic] when he is fully satisfied by virtue of acquired
knowledge and realization. Such a person is situated in transcendence
and is self-controlled. He sees everything — whether it be pebbles,
stones or gold — as the same.
