Hi,

Emacs' malayalam rendering is based on xft and libm17n-flt and
libotf. So the support is on X enabled emacs. So running emacs in
gnome-terminal won't give malayalam rendering. But running M-x shell or
M-x eshell (M-x => Alt-x) inside emacs can give you a
malayalam enabled shell. You probably have to compile the CVS especially
with libotf and libm17n-flt enabled. It is emacs' general rendering that
is enhanced with these improvements, So it works for every other modes
on emacs too.. be it gnus, erc..anything..

Also it seems rendering of other indic scripts also have enhanced with
the m17n improvement.

That have the details. iirc ./configure options has some corrections
there it seems...
