Khaled Hosny sub­mit­ted an up­date to the amiri pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 0.107 Li­cense type: ofl Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: This is a beta-re­lease of the font, though it is be­lieved to be largely us­able. (The au­thor re­tains the right to make in­com­pat­i­ble changes in the fu­ture.) The font cov­ers the Ara­bic and Ara­bic Sup­ple­ment blocks of Uni­code 6.0, which means it es­sen­tially cov­ers any lan­guage writ­ten in Ara­bic script and sup­ported by Uni­code. An­nounce­ment text:
Amiri 0.107 (2013-12-30)
* New glyphs: - Ara­bic math let­ters from Ara­bic Math­e­mat­i­cal Al­pha­betic Sym­bols block (U+1EE00?U+1EEFF). - Op­tional sup­port for plac­ing the kasra be­low the shadda, with ?ss05? fea­ture. - Miss­ing pro­por­tional LTR dig­its in the slanted font. * Fixes: - Rev­erted the low­er­ing of marks above wide iso­lated glyphs, it made the marks look weird rel­a­tive to other ones. - Fixed the po­si­tion of marks above qaf of ??. - Dropped the spe­cial com­bi­na­tion in ???? when it is fol­low vow­elled as it was too crowded. - Fixed the po­si­tion of sukun over shadda. - Fixed the side bear­ings of ??, ?? and sis­ters so that the dots do not clash with pre­ced­ing glyphs. - Pos­i­tive kern­ing be­tween ???? and likes. - Slight kern­ing be­tween the pe­riod and clos­ing quotes. - Made sure the italic Euro­pean dig­its are re­ally tab­u­lar.

amiri – A clas­si­cal Ara­bic type­face, Naskh style

Amiri is a clas­si­cal Ara­bic type­face in Naskh style for type­set­ting books and other run­ning text.

It is a re­vival of the beau­ti­ful type­face pi­o­neered in the early 20th cen­tury by Bu­laq Press in Cairo, also known as Amiria Press, af­ter which the font is named.

The project aims at the re­vival of the aes­thet­ics and tra­di­tions of Ara­bic type­set­ting, and adapt­ing it to the era of dig­i­tal type­set­ting, in a pub­licly avail­able form.
