Version 1.4 of the 24pt, proportional bitmap font for the X Window system is
now available. This version moves the Urdu digit 7 to the Private Use Area,
and for Unicode 3.0, adds three new letters, a couple of Sindhi marks, and the
non-spacing maddah and hamzah above and below.

This font currently includes 635 glyphs that are needed for rendering
all of the Arabic letters in Unicode 3.0 with minimal legibility. Any
improvements or additions welcomed.

For those of you looking for rendering info, the distribution does include a
file with information relating the glyphs to characters encoded in Unicode.
