Pretty Good Bidi Algorithm 2.4 released

From: Mark Leisher (
Date: Mon Nov 29 1999 - 11:57:57 EST

The changes to the bidi code for version 2.3 ended up producing totally
incorrect results. Version 2.4 restores the working algorithm with a couple
of small performance improvements.

My apologies to anyone who has spent hours looking at the 2.3 PGBA output and
wondering what went wrong :-)



The implicit directional reordering results from IBM's ICU bidi, Dov
Grobgeld's FriBidi, and my PGBA will be added to the UCData web site by the
end of the week along with the small test programs I wrote for each package.
