XITS fonts v1.011

Though v1.010 was promised to be the last release, I'm resuming work on the fonts, so here is a new beta of XITS fonts, featuring mainly support for right-to-left math which have been the main motivate behind the project, though never made it to any of the released versions (only supported by LuaTeX for now, more on that later).

Reduced Bulaq type case

Reduced Bulaq type case

The reduced Bulaq type case, cast in 1950 to simplify the original, 1910 type case, cutting it from 470 to 238 sorts (not counting vowel marks).

Amiri font v0.014

A new bug fix release of Amiri font, fixing two serious Windows bug; one related to Lellah form and the other results in wrong placement of final Yaa dots.

Amiri font v0.012

XITS fonts v1.009

Just released a new version of XITS fonts for scientific and mathematical typesetting, no much change from previous beta; fixing an issue (inherited from upstream) that breaks breaks printing with Ghostscript, and fine tuning of two math parameters.

KacstOne font v4.0

KacstOne is a simplified Arabic font originally released by KACST under GPL and then re-packaged by Arabeyes and released as part of our Khotot project.

Amiri 0.010

Yesterday I released version 0.010 of Amiri font, codenamed Referendum :)

Dynamic dots at work

When designing the OpenType layout of Amiri font I opted for a more complex dot separation model, where dots are treated as diacritical marks instead if being hard coded into base glyphs.

This paid off by lowering the total number of final glyphs as well as less substitution rules.

In the development version of Amiri, Pashto have been fully covered. The paragraphs above from the page on Pasho language from Pashto wikipedia. I can't read it, unfortunately, but it looks nice nevertheless :).

XITS 1.007

I just uploaded the seventh beta of XITS scientific fonts (don't let the beta label mislead you ;) it is quite functional).
