خالد حسنى - Mon, 31/12/2012 - 4:37pm

إصدارة أخيرة من الخط الأميري قبل نهاية عام ٢٠١٢ :). تشتمل هذه الإصدارة على الكثير من التحسينات على تموضع التشكيل، و التآلف، و أشكال الحروف، إلى آخره من التحسينات المعتادة. و يمكن تنزيلها من المكان المعتاد.

Amiri font v0.103

خالد حسنى - Thu, 31/05/2012 - 2:49pm

A new bug fix release of Amiri font. Release note: English, Arabic.

Amiri font v0.101

خالد حسنى - Tue, 27/12/2011 - 10:23pm

Another Amiri font release in less than month (release early, release often ;). The main feature of this release is brand new bold and bold slanted fonts, so now we cover the four common styles, though more work on polishing them still needed.

الخط الأميري ٠٫١٠٠

خالد حسنى - Sun, 04/12/2011 - 3:21pm

إصدارة جديدة من الخط الأميري مع قفزة جديدة في رقم الإصدارة لتوضيح الانتقال من مرحلة ألفا إلى مرحلة بيتا :) (أرقام إصداراتي لامنطقية، لكن هكذا الحياة).

Amiri font v0.100

خالد حسنى - Sun, 04/12/2011 - 3:20pm

Yet another Amiri font release with yet another jump in version number, this time to mark the move from alpha stage to beta stage :) (my versioning scheme makes no sense, but so is life).

Too lazy and too tired for screenshots and other fancy stuff :p, so here is the release notes:

الخط الأميري ٠٫٠١٦

خالد حسنى - Thu, 22/09/2011 - 10:46pm

إصدارة جديدة أخرى من الخط الأميري، هذه المرة مع دعم مكتمل -نوعا- ما للرسم القرآني، وهي آخر ميزة مهمة كانت تنقص الخط، وربما بعد إصدارتين أو أقل يدخل الخط إلى مرخلة بيتا تمهيدا للإصدارة النهائية.

وهذه ملاحظات الإصدار الكاملة:

Amiri font v0.016

خالد حسنى - Thu, 22/09/2011 - 10:33pm

Yet another developmental release of Amiri font, this time featuring a, more or less, complete Quranic support, which fixes the last major issue with the font, and I think it is only a couple of more alpha releases before it is ready to enter beta stage.

KacstOne font v5.0

خالد حسنى - Fri, 22/07/2011 - 7:15pm

Just released version 5.0 of KacstOne font, the new release features a new bold version of the font, it should also be possible now to copy text from PDF files using KacstOne, also the problematic kern feature have been removed as it was causing more problems (both Qt and OpenOffice have bugs in handling of right to left kerning) and a simplistic font like KacstOne can do without kerning at all (I had to fix the advance widths of certain glyphs the needed kerning more).

Amiri font v0.015

خالد حسنى - Thu, 14/07/2011 - 9:58pm

Another developmental release of Amiri font, marking a major developmental milestone.

Amiri was developed using a novel, and natural, approach of separating dots from base of the glyph and treating them as diacritical marks (which what they really are), this allowed much more flexibility than the more conventional approach of treating the dot and its base as a whole.

XITS fonts v1.011

خالد حسنى - Wed, 13/07/2011 - 8:44pm

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 typecase

خالد حسنى - Fri, 10/06/2011 - 6:47pm
Reduced Bulaq typecase

The reduced Bulaq typecase, casted in 1950 to simplify the original, 1910, typecase, cutting it from 470 to 238 glyphs (not counting vowel marks).

Amiri font v0.014

خالد حسنى - Sun, 05/06/2011 - 6:24am

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

خالد حسنى - Tue, 26/04/2011 - 10:31pm

Just released a new version of Amiri font, This is a mostly cleanup release, but now the font is more or less in a good shape and can be usable to some extent.

XITS fonts v1.009

خالد حسنى - Thu, 21/04/2011 - 11:50am

Just release 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

خالد حسنى - Mon, 11/04/2011 - 7:01pm

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

خالد حسنى - Mon, 21/03/2011 - 9:39pm

Yesterday I released Amiri 0.010, codenamed Referendum :)

أميري ٠٫٠٠٩

خالد حسنى - Sun, 06/02/2011 - 6:16pm

هذه الإصدارة الثالثة من الخط، كان المخطط أن تكون الأخيرة في سلسلة ألفا لكن مع الظروف الحالية وتحسبا لأي قطع جديد للإنترنت فقد أصدرتها كما هي؛ مجرد نسخة من الموجود في مستودع التطوير. رقم الإصدارة قفز من ٠٫٠٠٣ إلى ٠٫٠٠٩ لأن هذه الإصدارة اشتملت على الكثير من التغييرات مقارنة بسابقاتها.

أخطاء المترجمين

خالد حسنى - Sat, 08/01/2011 - 3:53pm
هذا مقتطف من مراجعة ترجمة عمرها 6 سنوات مر عليها ثلاث مترجمين آخرين خلال تلك الفترة ولم يلحظها أحد! والناس تتعجب لم أصر على مراجعة كل ترجمة جديدة تُرسل إليّ!

Dynamic dots at work

خالد حسنى - Mon, 03/01/2011 - 7:09pm

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 :).
