Bug#205565: ITP: silgraphite - complex font rendering engine
License: Dual license LGPL and CPL
Descriptions: SILGraphite is a system that can be used to create and use
"smart fonts" capable of displaying writing systems with various complex
behaviors, such as: contextual shaping, ligatures, reordering, split
glyphs, bidirectionality, stacking diacritics, complex positioning.
The 1.0 release is imminent so I will be uploading once that is done as long
as there are no objections.
N.B. the library itself doesn't yet do any display but there is an example
that does and further development should get it further as a pango module and
a cairo backend is in progress.
