Actually, I just updated my phone to Cyanogenmod 7.1, with Android
2.3.7, and now Android has this really beautiful Japanese (!)
maru-gothic font. Now I am just wondering if this is thanks to
Cyanogenmod, or to Android?

Does anyone know more about this?

If this is Android, then I am extremely pleased :) Well, users of
Chinese will maybe be not that pleased anymore, but for me, it is nicer
this way.
