Graphite 0.9.0

Graphite is a project under development within SIL’s Non-Roman Script Initiative and Language Software Development.
Graphite is a project under development within SIL’s Non-Roman Script Initiative and Language Software Development groups to provide rendering capabilities for complex non-Roman writing systems. (Work began in 1997 under the code name WinRend.)

The original goal was a system for the Windows platform; the system has also been ported to Linux. Graphite can be used to create “smart fonts” capable of displaying writing systems with various complex behaviors. With respect to the Text Encoding Model, Graphite handles the "Rendering" aspect of writing system implementation.

The Graphite project is intended to serve as the principal non-Roman renderer for the FieldWorks package, the new generation of linguistic and translation tools under development within SIL. We also want to make the Graphite library available to any software developer who is working to develop multilingual text processing applications.
