Sorry to disapoint you here.
No for 2.0 that is just coming out. Yes for 1.x, but the OT support
in FT 1.3+ is experimental at best, and very far from what can be
achieve by the others typesetting systems mentionned in this thread.

Now the Freetype group will develop FTL (Free Type Layout) which
intent is exactely the point talked about: rendering. The input will
be Unicode, and the Open Type concept will probably be center to the
design, but we shall take care to _not_ depend on OT-enabled fonts.
