The new fonts are in 8.2-764 and above.
I cannot read Arabic, but one of the still unresolved issues from what
I can see from the UI is the icon mirroring problem (#6562)
Also, during testing Arabic in Write activity, you'll have to
specifically select the Arabic font before doing anything (#2207).
Note that is not an issue which can always be reproduced - sometimes
the characters show up properly, and sometimes they don't.
We also need some more translations. Khaled, any comments on that ? ;-)
