libLASi-1.1.2 has been released

libLASi is a cross-platform library originally written by Larry Siden that provides a C++ stream output interface ( with operator << ) for creating Postscript documents that can contain characters from any of the scripts and symbol blocks supported in Unicode and by Owen Taylor's Pango layout engine. The library accommodates right-to-left scripts such as Arabic and Hebrew as easily as left-to-right scripts. Indic and Indic-derived Complex Text Layout (CTL) scripts, such as Devanagari, Thai, Lao, and Tibetan are supported to the extent provided by Pango and by the OpenType fonts installed on your system. All of this is provided without need for any special configuration or layout calculation on the programmer's part. For more details about libLASi see http://www.unifont.org/lasi/.
Our development team (http://sourceforge.net/p/lasi/_members/) is proud to announce the release of libLASi-1.1.2 which incorporates several bug fixes for the previous (1.1.1) release. The most important of these are fixing an issue with specifying freetype headers https://sourceforge.net/p/lasi/bugs/2/, and fixing a long-standing file repeatability issue https://sourceforge.net/p/lasi/bugs/5.
The libLASi-1.1.2 file release area (including release notes, a detailed ChangeLog, the source tarball, and a detached gpg signature for that tarball) is located at http://sourceforge.net/projects/lasi/files/lasi/1.1.2%20Source
Enjoy using libLASi-1.1.2 to make some very nice looking PostScript results. Your feedback on the lasi-devel mailing list (http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/lasi-devel) is welcome.
Alan W. Irwin on behalf of the libLASi developers.

New CMake-based Build System

LASi now uses a unified CMake-based build system. The new build system automatically detects which version of FreeType is available on your system and conditionally compiles appropriate code for your system.
