CTAN update: arabxetex
After 5 years of inactivity, this is release 1.2.0 of ArabXeTeX. Changes from version 1.1.4 include: - Fix problem with plain footnotes (http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/223081/arabxetex-and-footnote) - Remove obsolete and superfluous parts from documentation - Default Arabic font is now Amiri instead of Scheherazade and Amiri is also used in the documentation. - Include a pull request from Khaled Hosny: * Improves the documentation and notably clears up the confusion around U+FDF2. Consequently the options fdf2alif and fdf2noalif are now DEPRECATED, as well as the commands \SetAllahWithAlif and \SetAllahWithoutAlif. * Fix placement of tanwin fatah * Fix handling of end of ayeh symbol in mapping

arabxetex – An ArabTeX-like interface for XeLaTeX
ArabXeTeX provides a convenient ArabTeX-like user-interface for typesetting languages using the Arabic script in XeLaTeX, with flexible access to font features. Input in ArabTeX notation can be set in three different vocalization modes or in roman transliteration. Direct UTF-8 input is also supported. The parsing and converting of ArabTeX input to Unicode is done by means of TECkit mappings. Version 1.0 provides support for Arabic, Maghribi Arabic, Farsi (Persian), Urdu, Sindhi, Kashmiri, Ottoman Turkish, Kurdish, Jawi (Malay) and Uighur. The documentation covers topics such as typesetting the Holy Quran and typesetting bidirectional critical editions with the package ednotes.
