Overview of changes between 1.0.7 and 1.0.8
=============================================

* A bug fix in the fribidi unicode algorithm for multiple isolate sequences.

* Fixed a potential buffer overflow for a long sequence of isolate overrides characters


Overview of changes between 1.0.6 and 1.0.7
=============================================

* This is a minor bugfix that removes symlinks and updates the meson version.

Overview of changes between 1.0.5 and 1.0.6
=============================================

* This is a minor bugfix release that fixes a list of minor issues that have turned up during the last year.

* Various compilation and cross compilation issues.

* Various minor header cleanups.

* Removed libc's bsearch for performance and portability reasons

Overview of changes between 1.0.4 and 1.0.5
=============================================

* This is a bugfix release that fixed a bug BidiCharacterTest.c due to which a large number of character tests were not run. Once run, it uncovered 18 test failures. These have all been fixed in this release.

* The release also includes a small speedup due to small arrays being allocated on the stack instead of in dynamic memory.

* Updated Unicode tables to version 11.

Overview of changes between 1.0.3 and 1.0.4
=============================================

* Updated Unicode tables to version 11.

Overview of changes between 1.0.2 and 1.0.3
=============================================

* Minor compilation issues.

Overview of changes between 1.0.1 and 1.0.2
=============================================

* Added meson build system.
* glib dependency was completely removed even for tests.
* Tests now run on Visual Studio (through meson).
* Cleanup of obsolete options
* Travis support.

Overview of changes between 1.0 and 1.0.1
=============================================

* Minor distribution related fixes.

Overview of changes between 0.19.7 and 1.0
=============================================

* Full isolate and parenthesis support as per Unicode 6.3 to Unicode 10.0 . 
* To get access to the new algorithm calls to the function
  `fribidi_get_par_embedding_levels()` must be replaced with calls to
  `fribidi_get_par_embedding_levels_ex()`. These function are not API
  compatible. Calling the older function will use default values for
  the new bracket properties and will sometimes yield non-compliant
  results.

Overview of changes between 0.19.6 and 0.19.7
=============================================
* Disable thread-unsafe memory pool by default. (bug #79385)
* Misc fixes.

Overview of changes between 0.19.5 and 0.19.6
=============================================
* Fix two minor bidi bugs.
* Build with new libtool to support ppc64le.

Overview of changes between 0.19.4 and 0.19.5
=============================================
* Update to Unicode 6.2.0.

Overview of changes between 0.19.2 and 0.19.4

* Update to Unicode 6.1.0.
* Misc fixes.

Overview of changes between 0.19.1 and 0.19.2
=============================================
* Update to Unicode Character Database 5.1.0
* Fixed bug in Arabic ligature table (bug #208870)
* Handle RLM/LRM in CP1255 charset converter. (bug #15328, Artyom)

Overview of changes between 0.10.9 and 0.19.1
=============================================
* This is the first release of the fribidi2 module in CVS, mostly
  developed in 2004 and 2005.
* Support for Arabic joining/shaping added.
* API for correct handling of multi-line paragraphs added.
* Restructured code base.

=============================================
* Nothing really.  Just to fix my mess with 0.10.6 release (that never left
  the door.)

Overview of changes between 0.10.5 and 0.10.6
=============================================
* Fixed type sizes when stdint.h is not available.

Overview of changes between 0.10.4 and 0.10.5
=============================================
* Unicode 4.1.0 character database used.

  BiDi Algorithm.

  the relocation time of the library.
