Because the conversion from old liberation-fonts version (1.03) to new version
(1.04) is not a perfect conversion. That was done by fontforge but it has been
discovered there are data loss. The possible lost data are:

- Proprietary tables defined in OpenType format.
- Current flaws of fontforge.

For the latter issue, I have just fixed the missing hinting instructions of
certain glyphs. I will keep fixing more issues of latter, too.

For the former issue, it is more rely on available tools and the current
fontforge could not do it perfect enough.
