Will we be seeing the addition of font support like GLUT has in any of the future releases? It would certainly help a great deal - as it is, the easiest choice for me is GLUT, but I’d like to use just one window-interfacing library at a time if I can manage it.

No. See the FAQ on the GLFW web page, and the links to font toolkits. You are much better off with a “real” font toolkit than with the mediocre GLUT solution.

Unfortunately it is not freely available anymore, afaik, but there are many other, and better, free font toolktis available.
