Will word wrap and alignment be implemented soon? I see the interface is there, but un-implemented.
There are several core features that take precedence over font rendering, like fullscreen support, joystick input and Mac OS X integration.
Code contributions do tend to help speed things up, however. Word-wrapping happens to be quite straightforward to implement (it involves filling a buffer with the correct vertex coordinates), so feel free to contribute if you think you will need this functionality soon. ;)
A splendid idea. I've been working on open source for so long without receiving any external contributions to the main code base for so long that I forgot that was an option :).
