	* fribidi_types.h, fribidi_types.c, fribidi_get_type.c,
	unidata/CreateGetType.pl: Define symbol MEM_OPTIMIZED added to
	make Dov happy :-), if MEM_OPTIMIZED defined, fribidi_tables.i
	entries will be guint8 instead of gint to free 27KB extra memory
	that was used to make fribidi use bitmasks, the overhead will be
	three array lookups instead of two, in fribidi_get_type().	
	* fribidi_main.c: Options --verbose and --basedir added.
	Options --test and --caprtl updated.
	* conformance/test_gen.c: File name changed to
	conformance/test_gen_explicit.c

	fribidi_log2vis_get_embedding_levels() too. New functions
	fribidi_mirroring_status() and fribidi_set_mirroring() added to
	turn on or off mirroring (Rule L3).  Changed to warn about too long
	strings only if at least one of	position_L_to_V_list or
	position_V_to_L_list is asked.
	* fribidi.h: Updated to reflect new functions in fribidi.c,
	#include "config.h" removed, and added to each .c file that use it,
	because config.h should not be included by other apps/libs.
	* fribidi.c, fribidi_main.c, fribidi_benchmark.c: #included "config.h",
	Now, --version options shows the options that library is compiled
	with (DEBUG, MEM_OPTIMIZED, USE_SIMPLE_MALLOC, FRIBIDI_USE_MINI_GLIB).
	* fribidi_types.h, fribidi.c, fribidi.h, fribidi_utils.c: TypeDefined
	FriBidiStrIndex as guint16 and used for the type of

	* fribidi.c, fribidi.h: Function fribidi_remove_explicits() added
	to remove the explicit marks from a fribidi string.
	* fribidi.c: Fixed a bug that caused position_l_to_v and
	position_v_to_l	not to calculated correctly.
	* fribidi.h: Defined symbols PACKAGE and VERSION manually, autoconf
	should set them, but I don't know how to.
	* fribidi_char_sets.c, fribidi_char_sets.h, fribidi_char_sets_*:
	Each charset moved to a pair of .c/.h file.  CapRTL defined as a
	character set for testing with the reference implementation, with
	explicit marks escape strings, beware that it differs from the old
	capital rtl, it is a character set, only for test, with the property
	that contains all character types in ascii characters.  Some
	functions defined to make charset conversion easy.  An interface
	designed for adding new charsets.
	* fribidi_main.c: API revised, many new options added,	
	Default charset changed to UTF-8
	Option --caprtl simulates the old style (same as --charset CapRTL)
	Option --test simulates the old test_fribidi (same as --fill
	--showinput --clean)
	Option --clean now works for all charsets.
	Option --fill implemented.
	Options --version, --showinput, --ltov, --vtol, --levels, --changes,
	--novisual, --charsetdesc added.
	Now use the charset conventions, lots of code removed.
	* test_fribidi.c: Got removed!	`fribidi --test' should	be used 
	instead.
	* fribidi_benchmark: Explicit support added, now benchmarks with
	two strings, one without explicit marks and one with them.
	* run.tests, tests/test-CapRTL, tests/test-CapRTL.reference,
	tests/test-explicit, tests/test-explicit.reference,
	tests/test-hebrew, tests/test-hebrew.reference: New test datas
	added, for better testing of weak types and explicit support.  Test
	outputs updated for the new CapRTL character set.  Test output for
	test-hebrew added.
	* Makefile.in, Makefile.am: Updated to use fribidi instead of
	test_fribidi for test targets.  New files added.
	* TODO: Some done tasks removed, some new tasks added!

2001-03-09  Dov Grobgeld  <dov@orbotech.orbotech.co.il>
	* fribidi_mini_glib.c, fribidi_mini_glib.h: Applied patch
	received from Dan Kenigsberg <danken@cs.technion.ac.il> that
	allows compiling fribidi without glib if the flag
	FRIBIDI_USE_MINI_GLIB is turned on.  This option is currently
	turned on when compiling through Makefile.noglib .
	* TODO: Added the task of making autoconf automatically turn
	on FRIBIDI_USE_MINI_GLIB if glib isn't found.

2001-03-07  Behdad Esfahbod <behdad@bamdad.org>
	* fribidi.c: Removed dead codes, many parts rewritten more efficient,
	including Resolving Neutrals, Resolving Implicit Levels and ....
	* fribidi_types.h: Almost redefined, to use bitfields for char types,
	and many macros defined for efficient querying about char types.
	Some unused char types removed, also char types L, R, N converted
	to LTR, RTL and ON everywhere.
	* CreateGetType.pl: Changed to define tables as arrays of 
	FriBidiCharType instead of guchar.
	* conformance/: Updated some scripts for automatic testing with
	reference implementation.

2001-02-19  Behdad Esfahbod <behdad@bamdad.org>
	* fribidi.c: Added support for all explicit marks (embeddings and
	overrides), it means rules X1 .. X10 of specification.
	* fribidi.c: Added support for L1 rule of specification, it's
	resetting the char type of some characters, just before reordering.
	* fribidi.c: Added 'AL' to types that change the paragraph embedding
	level, it previously only checked for 'R'.
	* fribidi.c: Define symbol NO_STDIO changed to DEBUG, to turn on or
	off all debug codes compile time, also a function fribidi_set_debug,
	turns on and off the debug output generations in run time.
	* fribidi.c: Added some more debug information, all debug information
	revised and go to stderr now.
	* fribidi.c: Fixed a bug in rule W5, that is when some european
	terminators are between some arabic letters and some european
	numbers.
	* fribidi_main.c: Added support for inputting explicit marks, in
	CapRTL charset mode.
	* fribidi_main.c: Added command line option for debug mode.

	in cases W3 and W7.
	* fribidi.c: [OZ] fribidi_log2vis() and
	fribidi_log2vis_get_embedding_levels() now check for len==0 and if
	so, they return immediately (instead of getting stuck).
	* fribidi.c: [OZ] new_type_link() is now declared as
	new_type_link(void) to prevent a compiler error message.
	* fribidi.c: [OZ] The positions of the is_v2l_map and len
	arguments in fribidi_map_range() prototype were switched around,
	to conform to actual use in the source code file. 
	* fribidi.c: [OZ] The first argument to fribidi_is_char_rtl() was
	changed from gint8 to guint8, to conform to data type returned by
	fribidi_log2vis().  
	* fribidi.c: [OZ] bidi_string_strlen() now uses gint rather than int.
	* fribidi.c: [OZ] bidi_string_reverse() now uses gint rather than int.
	* fribidi.c: [OZ] int16_array_reverse() is now guint16_array_reverse().

2000-10-14  Dov Grobgeld  <dov.grobgeld@gmail.com>

	* Released fribidi-0.1.14.

	* CreateGetType.pl, fribidi_tables.i: Applied a patch received
 	from Roozbeh Pournader <roozbeh@sina.sharif.ac.ir> (who has got
 	quite some courage sending an email from Iran to Israel) which
	updates the character tables according to UnicodeData-3.0.1.txt .

	* fribidi_char_sets.c: Cleaned up the mess and made it compile!

2000-10-09  Dov Grobgeld  <dov.grobgeld@gmail.com>

	characters for the iso-8859-8 converts at unused positions 
	0xFE and 0xFF . 
	* CreateGetType.pl, fribidi.c, fribidi_tables.i, fribidi_types.h:
 	Updated the algorithms to be consistance with the latest Unicode
 	Technical Report #9 release. Still no explicit overrides, but
 	hopefully the implicit algorithm now works according to the
 	specification.
	* CreateGetType.pl, fribidi_tables.i: Overwrote the character
 	bidi-assignment of all non-assigned characters within blocks with
 	the property of the previous character in order to create a few
 	more reused secondary lookup character tables.
	* CreateGetType.pl, fribidi.c, fribidi_tables.i: Added Owen
 	Taylor's speed patch that speeds up fribidi by a factor of 4!
  	Owen's patch consists of two parts. The first part is a double
 	table lookup scheme for accessing the character properties,
 	replacing the old binary search. The second part is a reuse of the
 	links in the character properties linked list in order to minimize
 	mallocs.
