- Update to Unicode 10.
- Various Indic and Universal Shaping Engine fixes as a result of
HarfBuzz Hackfest with Jonathan Kew at Web Engines Hackfest at
the Igalia offices in A Coruña, Spain. Thanks Igalia for having
us!

+hb_font_set_ptem()
+hb_font_get_ptem()
+hb_ft_font_changed()
Overview of changes leading to 1.5.1
Tuesday, September 5, 2017
====================================
- Fix "unsafe-to-break" in fallback shaping and other corner cases.
All our tests pass with --verify now, meaning unsafe-to-break API
works as expected.
- Add --unicodes to hb-view / hb-shape.
- [indic] Treat Consonant_With_Stacker as consonant. This will need
further tweaking.
- hb_buffer_diff() tweaks.
Overview of changes leading to 1.5.0
Wednesday, August 23, 2017
====================================
- Misc new API, for appending a buffer to another, and for comparing
contents of two buffers for types of differences.
- New "unsafe-to-break" API. Can be used to speed up reshaping
in line-breaking situations. Essentially, after shaping, it returns
positions in the input string (some of the cluster boundaries) that
are "safe to break" in that if the text is segmented at that position
and two sides reshaped and concatenated, the shaping result is
exactly the same as shaping the text in one piece.
hb-view and hb-shape and hb-shape now take --verify, which verifies
the above property.
Some corner cases of the implementation are still not quite working.
Those will be fixed in subsequent releases.
- New API:
hb_buffer_append()
hb_glyph_flags_t
HB_GLYPH_FLAG_UNSAFE_TO_BREAK
HB_GLYPH_FLAG_DEFINED
hb_glyph_info_get_glyph_flags()
HB_BUFFER_SERIALIZE_FLAG_GLYPH_FLAGS
hb_buffer_diff_flags_t
HB_BUFFER_DIFF_FLAG_EQUAL
HB_BUFFER_DIFF_FLAG_CONTENT_TYPE_MISMATCH
HB_BUFFER_DIFF_FLAG_LENGTH_MISMATCH
HB_BUFFER_DIFF_FLAG_NOTDEF_PRESENT
HB_BUFFER_DIFF_FLAG_DOTTED_CIRCLE_PRESENT
HB_BUFFER_DIFF_FLAG_CODEPOINT_MISMATCH
HB_BUFFER_DIFF_FLAG_CLUSTER_MISMATCH
HB_BUFFER_DIFF_FLAG_GLYPH_FLAGS_MISMATCH
HB_BUFFER_DIFF_FLAG_POSITION_MISMATCH
hb_buffer_diff

- Deprecate API:
hb_graphite2_font_get_gr_font()
Overview of changes leading to 1.4.2
Monday, January 23, 2017
====================================
- Implement OpenType Font Variation tables avar/fvar/HVAR/VVAR.
- hb-shape and hb-view now accept --variations.
- New API:
hb_variation_t
hb_variation_from_string()
hb_variation_to_string()
hb_font_set_variations()
hb_font_set_var_coords_design()
hb_font_get_var_coords_normalized()
hb-ot-var.h:
hb_ot_var_axis_t
hb_ot_var_has_data()
hb_ot_var_get_axis_count()
hb_ot_var_get_axes()
hb_ot_var_find_axis()
hb_ot_var_normalize_variations()

Overview of changes leading to 1.4.1
Thursday, January 5, 2017
====================================
- Always build and use UCDN for Unicode data by default.
Reduces dependence on version of Unicode data in glib,
specially in the Windows bundles we are shipping, which
have very old glib.
Overview of changes leading to 1.4.0
Thursday, January 5, 2017
====================================
- Merged "OpenType GX" branch which adds core of support for
OpenType 1.8 Font Variations. To that extent, the relevant
new API is:
New API:
hb_font_set_var_coords_normalized()
with supporting API:
New API:
HB_OT_LAYOUT_NO_VARIATIONS_INDEX
hb_ot_layout_table_find_feature_variations()
hb_ot_layout_feature_with_variations_get_lookups()
hb_shape_plan_create2()
hb_shape_plan_create_cached2()
Currently variations in GSUB/GPOS/GDEF are fully supported,
and no other tables are supported. In particular, fvar/avar
are NOT supported, hence the hb_font_set_var_coords_normalized()
taking normalized coordinates. API to take design coordinates
will be added in the future.
HVAR/VVAR/MVAR support will also be added to hb-ot-font in the
future.
- Fix regression in GDEF glyph class processing.

Thursday, July 21, 2016
====================================
- Update to Unicode 9.0.0
- Move Javanese from Indic shaper to Universal Shaping Engine.
- Allow MultipleSubst to delete a glyph (matching Windows engine).
- Update Universal Shaping Engine to latest draft from Microsoft.
- DirectWrite backend improvements. Note: this backend is for testing ONLY.
- CoreText backend improvements with unreachable fonts.
- Implement symbol fonts (cmap 3.0.0) in hb-ft and hb-ot-font.
- Blacklist bad GDEF of more fonts (Tahoma & others).

Friday, April 8, 2016
====================================
- Blacklist GDEF table of another set of Times New Roman (Bold) Italic.
- DirectWrite backend improvements. Note: DirectWrite backend is
exclusively for our internal testing and should NOT be used in any
production system whatsoever.
Overview of changes leading to 1.2.5
Monday, April 4, 2016
====================================
- Fix GDEF mark-filtering-set, which was broken in 1.2.3.
Overview of changes leading to 1.2.4
Thursday, March 17, 2016
====================================
- Synthesize GDEF glyph class for any glyph that does not have one in GDEF.
I really hope we don't discover broken fonts that shape badly with this
change.
- Misc build and other minor fixes.
- API changes:
- Added HB_NDEBUG. It's fine for production systems to define this to
disable high-overhead debugging checks. However, I also reduced the
overhead of those checks, so it's a non-issue right now. You can
forget it. Just not defining anything at all is fine.
Overview of changes leading to 1.2.3
Thursday, February 25, 2016
====================================
- Blacklist GDEF table of certain versions of Times New Roman (Bold) Italic,
due to bug in glyph class of ASCII double-quote character. This should
address "regression" introduced in 1.2.0 when we switched mark zeroing
in most shapers from BY_UNICODE_LATE to BY_GDEF_LATE.
This fourth release in a week should finally stablize things...
- hb-ot-font's get_glyph() implementation saw some optimizations. Though,
might be really hard to measure in real-world situations.
- Also, two rather small API changes:
We now disable some time-consuming internal bookkeeping if built with NDEBUG
defined. This is a first time that we use NDEBUG to disable debug code. If
there exist production systems that do NOT want to enable NDEBUG, please let
me know and I'll add HB_NDEBUG.
Added get_nominal_glyph() and get_variation_glyph() instead of get_glyph()
New API:
- hb_font_get_nominal_glyph_func_t
- hb_font_get_variation_glyph_func_t
- hb_font_funcs_set_nominal_glyph_func()
- hb_font_funcs_set_variation_glyph_func()
- hb_font_get_nominal_glyph()
- hb_font_get_variation_glyph()
Deprecated API:
- hb_font_get_glyph_func_t
- hb_font_funcs_set_glyph_func()
Clients that implement their own font-funcs are encouraged to replace
their get_glyph() implementation with a get_nominal_glyph() and
get_variation_glyph() pair. The variation version can assume that
variation_selector argument is not zero. Old (deprecated) functions
will continue working indefinitely using internal gymnastics; it is
just more efficient to use the new functions.
Overview of changes leading to 1.2.2
Wednesday, February 24, 2016
====================================
- Fix regression with mark positioning with fonts that have
non-zero mark advances. This was introduced in 1.2.0 while
trying to make mark and cursive attachments to work together.
I have partially reverted that, so this version is much more
like what we had before. All clients who updated to 1.2.0
should update to this version.
Overview of changes leading to 1.2.1
Tuesday, February 23, 2016
====================================
- CoreText: Fix bug with wrong scale if font scale was changed later.
https://github.com/libass/libass/issues/212
- CoreText: Drastically speed up font initialization.
- CoreText: Fix tiny leak.
- Group ZWJ/ZWNJ with previous syllable under cluster-level=0.
https://github.com/harfbuzz/harfbuzz/issues/217
- Add test/shaping/README.md about how to add tests to the suite.
Overview of changes leading to 1.2.0
Friday, February 19, 2016
====================================
- Fix various issues (hangs mostly) in case of memory allocation failure.
- Change mark zeroing types of most shapers from BY_UNICODE_LATE to
BY_GDEF_LATE. This seems to be what Uniscribe does.
- Change mark zeroing of USE shaper from NONE to BY_GDEF_EARLY. That's
what Windows does.
- Allow GPOS cursive connection on marks, and fix the interaction with
mark attachment. This work resulted in some changes to how mark
attachments work. See:
https://github.com/harfbuzz/harfbuzz/issues/211
https://github.com/harfbuzz/harfbuzz/commit/86c68c7a2c971efe8e35b1f1bd99401dc8b688d2
- Graphite2 shaper: improved negative advance handling (eg. Nastaliq).
- Add nmake-based build system for Windows.
- Minor speedup.
- Misc. improvements.
Overview of changes leading to 1.1.3
Monday, January 11, 2016
====================================
- Ported Indic shaper to Unicode 8.0 data.
- Universal Shaping Engine fixes.
- Speed up CoreText shaper when font fallback happens in CoreText.
- Documentation improvements, thanks to Khaled Hosny.
- Very rough directwrite shaper for testing, thanks to Ebrahim Byagowi.
- Misc bug fixes.
- New API:
* Font extents:
hb_font_extents_t
hb_font_get_font_extents_func_t
hb_font_get_font_h_extents_func_t
hb_font_get_font_v_extents_func_t
hb_font_funcs_set_font_h_extents_func
hb_font_funcs_set_font_v_extents_func
hb_font_get_h_extents
hb_font_get_v_extents
hb_font_get_extents_for_direction
* Buffer message (aka debug):
hb_buffer_message_func_t
hb_buffer_set_message_func()
Actual message protocol to be fleshed out later.
Overview of changes leading to 1.1.2
Wednesday, November 26, 2015
====================================
- Fix badly-broken fallback shaper that affected terminology.
https://github.com/harfbuzz/harfbuzz/issues/187
- Fix y_scaling in Graphite shaper.
- API changes:
* An unset glyph_h_origin() function in font-funcs now (sensibly)
implies horizontal origin at 0,0. Ie, the nil callback returns
true instead of false. As such, implementations that have a
glyph_h_origin() that simply returns true, can remove that function
with HarfBuzz >= 1.1.2. This results in a tiny speedup.
Overview of changes leading to 1.1.1
Wednesday, November 24, 2015
====================================
- Build fixes, specially for hb-coretext.
Overview of changes leading to 1.1.0

U+2010 HYPHEN.
- Changes resulting from libFuzzer continuous fuzzing:
* Reject font tables that need more than 8 edits,
* Bound buffer growth during shaping to 32x,
* Fix assertions and other issues at OOM / buffer max-growth.
- Misc fixes and optimizations.
- API changes:
* All fonts created with hb_font_create() now inherit from
(ie. have parent) hb_font_get_empty().
Overview of changes leading to 1.0.6
Thursday, October 15, 2015
====================================
- Reduce max nesting level in OT lookups from 8 to 6.
Should not affect any real font as far as I know.
- Fix memory access issue in ot-font.
- Revert default load-flags of fonts created using hb_ft_font_create()
back to FT_LOAD_DEFAULT|FT_LOAD_NO_HINTING. This was changed in
last release (1.0.5), but caused major issues, so revert.
https://github.com/harfbuzz/harfbuzz/issues/143
Overview of changes leading to 1.0.5
Tuesday, October 13, 2015
====================================
- Fix multiple memory access bugs discovered using libFuzzer.
https://github.com/harfbuzz/harfbuzz/issues/139
Everyone should upgrade to this version as soon as possible.
We now have continuous fuzzing set up, to avoid issues like
these creeping in again.
- Misc fixes.
- New API:
* hb_font_set_parent().
* hb_ft_font_[sg]et_load_flags()
The default flags for fonts created using hb_ft_font_create()
has changed to default to FT_LOAD_DEFAULT now. Previously it
was defaulting to FT_LOAD_DFEAULT|FT_LOAD_NO_HINTING.
- API changes:
* Fonts now default to units-per-EM as their scale, instead of 0.
* hb_font_create_sub_font() does NOT make parent font immutable
anymore. hb_font_make_immutable() does.

- Build fixes for Windows CE. Should build fine now.
- Misc fixes:
Use atexit() only if it's safe to call from shared library
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=82246
Mandaic had errors in its Unicode Joining_Type
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=82306
- API changes:
* hb_buffer_clear_contents() does not reset buffer flags now.
After 763e5466c0a03a7c27020e1e2598e488612529a7, one doesn't
need to set flags for different pieces of text. The flags now
are something the client sets up once, depending on how it
actually uses the buffer. As such, don't clear it in
clear_contents().
I don't expect any changes to be needed to any existing client.
Overview of changes leading to 0.9.34
Saturday, August 2, 2014
=====================================
- hb_feature_from_string() now accepts CSS font-feature-settings format.
- As a result, hb-shape / hb-view --features also accept CSS-style strings.
Eg, "'liga' off" is accepted now.
- Add old-spec Myanmar shaper:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=81775
- Don't apply 'calt' in Hangul shaper.
- Fix mark advance zeroing for Hebrew shaper:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=76767
- Implement Windows-1256 custom Arabic shaping. Only built on Windows,
and requires help from get_glyph(). Used by Firefox.
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1045139
- Disable 'liga' in vertical text.
- Build fixes.
- API changes:
* Make HB_BUFFER_FLAG_BOT/EOT easier to use.
Previously, we expected users to provide BOT/EOT flags when the
text *segment* was at paragraph boundaries. This meant that for
clients that provide full paragraph to HarfBuzz (eg. Pango), they
had code like this:
hb_buffer_set_flags (hb_buffer,
(item_offset == 0 ? HB_BUFFER_FLAG_BOT : 0) |
(item_offset + item_length == paragraph_length ?
HB_BUFFER_FLAG_EOT : 0));
hb_buffer_add_utf8 (hb_buffer,
paragraph_text, paragraph_length,
item_offset, item_length);
After this change such clients can simply say:
hb_buffer_set_flags (hb_buffer,
HB_BUFFER_FLAG_BOT | HB_BUFFER_FLAG_EOT);
hb_buffer_add_utf8 (hb_buffer,
paragraph_text, paragraph_length,
item_offset, item_length);
Ie, HarfBuzz itself checks whether the segment is at the beginning/end
of the paragraph. Clients that only pass item-at-a-time to HarfBuzz
continue not setting any flags whatsoever.
Another way to put it is: if there's pre-context text in the buffer,
HarfBuzz ignores the BOT flag. If there's post-context, it ignores
EOT flag.
Overview of changes leading to 0.9.33
Tuesday, July 22, 2014
=====================================
- Turn off ARabic 'cswh' feature that was accidentally turned on.
- Add HB_TAG_MAX_SIGNED.

Overview of changes leading to 0.9.31
Wednesday, July 16, 2014
=====================================
- Only accept valid UTF-8/16/32; we missed many cases before.
- Better shaping of invalid UTF-8/16/32. Falls back to
U+FFFD REPLACEMENT CHARACTER now.
- With all changes in this release, the buffer will contain fully
valid Unicode after hb_buffer_add_utf8/16/32 no matter how
broken the input is. This can be overridden though. See below.
- Fix Mongolian Variation Selectors for fonts without GDEF.
- Fix minor invalid buffer access.
- Accept zh-Hant and zh-Hans language tags. hb_ot_tag_to_language()
now uses these instead of private tags.
- Build fixes.
- New API:
* hb_buffer_add_codepoints(). This does what hb_buffer_add_utf32()
used to do, ie. no validity check on the input at all. add_utf32
now replaces invalid Unicode codepoints with the replacement
character (see below).
* hb_buffer_set_replacement_codepoint()
* hb_buffer_get_replacement_codepoint()
Previously, in hb_buffer_add_utf8 and hb_buffer_add_utf16, when
we detected broken input, we replaced that with (hb_codepoint_t)-1.
This has changed to use U+FFFD now, but can be changed using these
new API.

Overview of changes leading to 0.9.18
Tuesday, May 28, 2013
=====================================
New build system:
- All unneeded code is all disabled by default,
- Uniscribe and CoreText shapers can be enabled with their --with options,
- icu_le and old shapers cannot be enabled for now,
- glib, freetype, and cairo will be detected automatically.
They can be force on/off'ed with their --with options,
- icu and graphite2 are default off, can be enabled with their --with
options,
Moreover, ICU support is now build into a separate library:
libharfbuzz-icu.so, and a new harfbuzz-icu.pc is shipped for it.
Distros can enable ICU now without every application on earth
getting linked to via libharfbuzz.so.
For distros I recommend that they make sure they are building --with-glib
--with-freetype --with-cairo, --with-icu, and optionally --with-graphite2;
And package harfbuzz and harfbuzz-icu separately.
Overview of changes leading to 0.9.17
Monday, May 20, 2013

- Removed generated files from git again. So, one needs ragel to
bootstrap from the git tree.
API changes:
- hb_shape() and related APIs now abort if buffer direction is
HB_DIRECTION_INVALID. Previously, hb_shape() was calling
hb_buffer_guess_segment_properties() on the buffer before
shaping. The heuristics in that function are fragile. If the
user really wants the old behvaior, they can call that function
right before calling hb_shape() to get the old behavior.
- hb_blob_create_sub_blob() always creates sub-blob with
HB_MEMORY_MODE_READONLY. See comments for the reason.

hb_face_reference_table() returns empty blob instead of NULL
hb_get_table_func_t accepts the face as first parameter now
* Font API:
o Fonts can subclass other fonts now. Unimplemented callbacks in the
subclass automatically chainup to the parent. When chaining up,
scale is adjusted if the parent font has a different scale.
o All hb_font_funcs_t callbacks take a user_data now. Their setters
take a user_data and its respective destroy callback.
o New API:
hb_font_get_parent()
hb_font_funcs_get_empty()
hb_font_create_sub_font()
o Removed API:
hb_font_funcs_copy()
hb_font_unset_funcs()
o Removed func getter functions:
hb_font_funcs_get_glyph_func()
hb_font_funcs_get_glyph_advance_func()
hb_font_funcs_get_glyph_extents_func()
hb_font_funcs_get_contour_point_func()
hb_font_funcs_get_kerning_func()
o Changed API:
hb_font_create() takes a face and references it now
hb_font_set_funcs() takes user_data before destroy now
hb_font_set_scale() accepts signed integers now
hb_font_get_contour_point_func_t now takes glyph first, then point_index
hb_font_get_glyph_func_t returns a success boolean now
* Changed object model:
o All object types have a _get_empty() now:
hb_blob_get_empty()
hb_buffer_get_empty()
hb_face_get_empty()
hb_font_get_empty()
hb_font_funcs_get_empty()
hb_unicode_funcs_get_empty()

o Removed the _get_reference_count() from all object types:
hb_blob_get_reference_count()
hb_buffer_get_reference_count()
hb_face_get_reference_count()
hb_font_funcs_get_reference_count()
hb_font_get_reference_count()
hb_unicode_funcs_get_reference_count()
o Added _make_immutable() and _is_immutable() for all object types except for buffer:
hb_blob_make_immutable()
hb_blob_is_immutable()
hb_face_make_immutable()
hb_face_is_immutable()
