As Mr Fahad explain, for now we just implementing boxes tree method for
storing glyphs but this is the difficult part in our work because it
require major changes in scribus. I think this part known by all of you
because it not related to CTL so, I will complete this part completely
before I move to CTL and I will integrate it with the updated SVN version.
After that, I will send patch with this implementation for you for further
testing. Then, integrating harfbuzz and freebidi will be straight forward
for me or for any one interested in CTL because it will not need much and
complex coding as box implementation required. What do you think about that
solution ??
