  • Drop TTF files from the web fonts archive, WOFF and WOFF2 should be all one
    needs now.

  • Fix kerning of the new Kaf glyphs introduced in the previous release.

  • Fix wrong glyph class for U+0674 ARABIC LETTER HIGH HAMZA, causing it to be incorrectly treated as a zero width mark, #138.
  • Drop localized Arabic names from the font (like style names), their support in application is spotty, also it is a bit Ugly to have the font presented with mixed language name, e.g. “Amiri عادي”, in some applications under Arabic locales.
  • Allow Kashida around floating Hamza, #137,
  • Colorize Hamza above mark in colored Quran font, #136.

  • The font can be also built with upstream FontForge now, though the result might be slightly different from the pre-built fonts.
