CTAN Update: amiri
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 قح. - Dropped the special combination in تمخ when it is follow vowelled as it was too crowded. - Fixed the position of sukun over shadda. - Fixed the side bearings of ثر, ثن and sisters so that the dots do not clash with preceding glyphs. - Positive kerning between مرين 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.
