Junicode 0.6.9

This release adds Nordic shapes of Thorn, thorn and eth: these are similar to the shapes normally found in modern fonts. Users of OpenType-aware applications (such as InDesign and Mellel) can access them by selecting Stylistic Set 1. This also adds Stylistic Set 2, which displays old-style Old English letter-shapes in lowercase. Many other OpenType features added, especially Stylistic Alternates for many standard alphabetic characters. Added various ligatures (fj at E18A and various longs ligatures at E1A6-E1AD) and also OpenType features for these. Added small caps with diacritics at F7E0-F7FF. Note that the locations of all these added characters match those used by Adobe.
