ANNOUNCE: fribidi-0.1.12

I have relased a new version 0.1.12 of fribidi with the following 
major changes:

     * Applied a speed patch by Owen Taylor that makes fribidi almost
       4 times faster.

     * Updated the algorithm according to the latest Unicode specification.
       (Still no explicit overrides though).

     * Added support for the LRM and RLM characters for the iso-8859-8 
       converts at unused positions 0xFE and 0xFF . 

Here's the blurb in case someone missed it:

FriBidi is a free BiDi library that should adher closely to the Unicode 
BiDi algorithm.

FriBidi is written in C and should provide a common API that will 
facilitate porting of various software to support BiDirection 

FriBidi may be found at:

Here is an example of what the library can do, where capital letters
are treated as having Right-To-Left direction.
