On Tue, 14 Jul 2009, Vafa Khalighi, having taken over maintainance, submitted an update to the bidi package. Location on CTAN: /macros/xetex/latex/bidi/ Summary description: Support for bidirectional typesetting with XeLaTeX License type: lppl Announcement text:
This is the new release of the bidi package (v1.0.1). This version has been tested by me and other people and so contains a minimum number of bugs (or known better as XeTeX limitations). In this version we have fixed all the known bugs and support for lots of LaTeX packages is added. There is no real documentation at the moment due to my illness but if you have any question, then please ask it on the XeTeX mailing list. There are heaps of examples that will help you understand how this new version works and what features are added. Unfortunately it proved almost impossible to support hyperref and color because of XeTeX limitations. For color support, you are encouraged to use xecolour package instead using ordinary color and xcolor packages. Also please note that when you use longtable package with bidi package, in RTL mode, your tables will not break when a page is finished and again this is due to XeTeX limitation. Please note that you always should load bidi package as your last package.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/xetex/latex/bidi/ . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=bidi (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html . _______________________________________________ Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
