upgrade Liblouis to version 3.8.0 #9013
Ho to all,
The liblouis developer team is proud to announce the liblouis release 3.8.0. The release is available for download at:
Liblouis is an open-source braille translator and back-translator. It features support for computer, literary and math braille, supports contracted and uncontracted translation for many, many languages.
Changes in this release
The major focus of this release is on braille table updates. There are major updates to German, Arabic, Chinese, Turkish, Dutch, Czech, Latvian, Spanish and Ethiopic. Some of these new tables have only been possible because Bert Frees fixed some nasty long standing bugs behind the scene. Also there is the usual assortment of code improvements and cleanups.
For a detailed list of all the changes refer to the list of closed issues.
Backwards incompatible changes
The next release will be published on March 4 2019 so please keep up the excellent work and keep those improvements coming.
Share and Enjoy!
-- Christian Egli, on behalf of the liblouis developers

I will provide a pr for this which will also switch to using UCS4 under the hood, being much more friendly to emoji. I intend to add the new Spanish and Arabic tables. I'm not sure about Turkish, though. There is a tr.ctb table that is classified by NVDA as turkish grade 1, but liblouis contains another turkish grade 1 tables.
Don’t forget to add the arabic computer Braille and arabic grade 2 And also don’t forget to rename the german tables.
