History Repeats Itself (Afghanistan)
- Subsetter API is being stabilized, with the first stable API to happen in
  3.0.0 release (
- Support multiple variation axes with same tag, aka HOI.
- The “coretext” testing shaper now passes font variations to CoreText.
- hb-shape/hb-view does not break line at new lines unless text is read from
- hb-view and hb-subset has a --batch now, similar to hb-shape.
- The --batch mode now uses ; as argument separator instead of : used previously.
- The --batch in hb-shape does not expect 0th argument anymore. That is, the
  lines read are interpreted as argv[1:], instead of argv[0:].
- The --batch option has been undocumented. We are ready to document it; send
  feedback if you find it useful.
- hb-subset got arguments revamps. Added much-requested --gids-file, --glyphs,
  --glyphs-file, --unicodes-file, supporting ranges in --unicodes.
- Various bug fixes.
