* New glyphs:
 - Arabic math letters from Arabic Mathematical Alphabetic Symbols block
 - Optional support for placing the kasra below the shadda, with “ss05”
 - 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.
