Thanks for the note. Indeed this has been supposed to be called 2.0.
And it should be looked as a pre release for that. There are two main
reasons that I didn't call it so yet:
- The fribidi command-line tool is not using the new non-deprecated
API as it should.
- This is the first release of this code and I didn't want to commit
to the API just yet.
