CTAN Update: dad
In this update of the dad system (which is quite useful in case of mixed Arabic/non-Arabic-script documents) I have included package luatex85 and changed \luatexttextdir into \textdir. If you use dad please send me a mail, I'm just curious (the late Sebastian Rahtz used to say that the Omega Users Group can hold its meeting in an elevator, I was wondering if this is the case for dad as well…).
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/dad The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/language/arabic/dad/
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese

dad – Simple typesetting system for mixed Arabic/Latin documents
This package allows simple typesetting in Arabic script, intended for mixed Arabic/Latin script usage in situations where heavy-duty solutions are discouraged. The ﺽ system operates with both Unicode and transliterated input, allowing the user to choose the most appropriate approach for every situation.
