- Arabic (and Urdu) support added (design by Mohamad Dakak) (#84)
    - See the Arabic features PDF for the exciting new Arabic ligature
      functionality used in Cascadia Code that gives the font greatly improved
      readability and feel more more akin to a text typeface.
    - Don't want all that? Don't worry, Cascadia Mono will house a normal
      version of Arabic.

- Hebrew support added (design by Liron Lavi Turkenich) (#465)

- Due to popular demand, we've introduced a more "toned-down" version of
  Cascadia Italic, which does away with a number of the cursive letter forms.
    - Entry and exit strokes across the italic lowercase have been rounded
      to better achieve the fun / playful design language that we intended
      for the italic. Other skeletons have been modified as necessary.
      Cyrillic has also been updated for better consistency with the new
    - You can now activate the original cursive versions of /f /l /s and
      /r with typographic feature salt or ss01.


- We have adjusted the slant on all of the italic letters to make sure it's
  consistent (#470)
- Italic Only: #507 - bar and broken bar will now stay upright for better
- Fixing a bug in the ccmp feature file and added ccmp to the feature
  set in the build script.
- Deleting the (unused) liga feature file
- Vika has reviewed and improved some forms in Cascadia Code upright.
- Greek lowercase has been updated per feedback from Gerry Leonidas to
  be more cohesive (No longer a mix between a "Monday" and \ 
"Friday" font.
  All Friday, all the time!)
- #422 - Bitcoin glyph added
- #427 - FFFD glyph added
- #418 - top bar corrected
- #433 - hinting corrected to ensure alignment
- #435 - adds consistent ligature form for =>> <<= =<< and
  >>= (the infinite arrows still work with addition of more equals)
- #443 - ligature now ignores (*) scenario
- #454 - adds ignore to prevent equal_equal ligature from showing up
- #467 - Not specifically sure of the problem here, but suspect that it will
  be fixed with this - update.
- #477, #478, #479, #480 - interpolation issues fixes in a lot of ligatures
- #481 - JetBrains enumerates fonts weird. We've modified the internal naming
  so that it will register Cascadia Code correctly. Also aligned postscript
  naming with Google's recommendation, so will show up as "Regular" \ 
instead of
- General improvement of weight balancing
- Weight of lowercase rounds reduced in the Bold weight in Cascadia Code.
- Weight of Capital stems increased in Extralight weight in Cascadia Code.
- Tweaked weight of ogonek in ExtraLight.
- Added a localized form for ij and IJ should a user chose to use those
  codepoints and want an accented version.
- Split fraction bar at heavier weights to improve clarity of fractions.
- Adjusted standard box drawing characters to align with GDI metrics, and added
  a complete set of DWrite-specific ones that align with sTypo (using rclt).
- Ironed out some tiny inconsistencies in the <$ $> <$> ligatures which
  we suspect no one will ever notice.
- Fixed centering of braces and some hyphens.
- Fixed inconsistency between semicolon/colon and period weight in bold. Also
  fixed slight differences in hyphen-like glyphs in bold. You're as surprised
  as we are.
- Increased weight of underscore in bold.
- Changed design of commaaccent, commaaccentmod commaturnedabove and commaabove
  to be more distinguishable (following design of quotes).
- Fixed descents of various greek lowercase glyphs that were inconsistent.
- Felt ligated, might edit later.
- Corrected some additional interpolation bugs

Log message:
cascadia-ttf: update to 2102.25.

This is a bugfix release of the Cascadia font family.

Fixes include:

    Closes #406 - updated anchor type to lock with the other equals-related ligatures
    Closes #408 - corrected component used for glyph to align with Unicode
    Closes #412 - updated locl features removing iacute_j ligature and Catalan \ 
    Closes #414 - increased overlaps of middle glyph for arrow ligatures
    Closes #415 - reduces width of macronbelow
    Closes #416 - rolls back name ID 4 modification as JetBrains cannot process \ 
it correctly
    Closes #428 - rolls back variation of the underline to prevent MVAR table \ 

    Repositioned tilde in related ligatures. Previously it was higher than the \ 
standard one.
    Added missing vietnamese anchors on acute and grave (futureproofing).
    Corrected / made consistent greater & less positioning in </> and \ 
<$> related ligatures.
    Otherwise reviewed hinting

Log message:
cascadia-ttf: update to 2102.03.

This update to the Cascadia font family brings the following changes:

    The full control pictures block has been added (u+2400 to u+2426). For \ 
purposes of rendering, the two letter
    abbreviations have been used instead of the standard three letter \ 
abbreviations (#219)
        Additionally, ss20 includes the oft-unused graphical representations of \ 
these codepoints (for fun!)

    Full support for Fira Code's current ligature set (with a few exceptions). \ 
Now featuring infinite arrows!!! (#276)
        This involved a full refactoring of the calt feature—for those \ 
interested, it now uses forward-looking
        substitutions instead of backward-looking substitutions and progressive \ 
substitution to reduce code. This also
        required some redesigning of the greater / lesser related ligatures. \ 
Please note, I have also removed all the
        obsolete ligatures now covered by the arrows code.

    There was a mismatch in the font's postscript naming conventions that was \ 
corrected. Should now render all weights in
    Word. Note there is apparently an additional bug in Mac Word's \ 
implementation of variable fonts which should be
    available in an update mid-Feb. (#329)

    Reworked the hints for the mod and superscript glyphs so that they're \ 
bottom-up rather than top-down. This allows for
    better bottom alignments.

New Glyphs

    ⏎ (#262)
    additional codepoints for control characters U+21B2, U+2771, U+2770, U+2423 \ 
    U+211E ℞ (#324)
    U+2302 HOUSE (#359)

New Ligatures

    !: and !. added (#281)
    /\ and \/ added (#290)
    ??= added (#301)
    <:> and other variants implemented via the calt (#327)


    Added x-height instruction into ttfautohint to control the (#371)
    height of the lowercase.
    Completely redesigned quote marks for better recognition (#375)
        Note: this only applies to curved/smart quotes
    updated hinting to achieve more consistent results (#377)
    increased height of thetamod (#381)
    reduced the width of the hooklefts (#382)
    updated heights on esh, glottalstop, glottalstopreversed (#383)
    tweaked hinting a little bit (#384)
    added remaining soft-dotting (#386)
    changed designs of the angled quotes (#392)
    changed former ~= symbol to a simpler component-based (#394)
    version. Should be less confusing now for Lua / Matlab users.
    made the underline thicker based on font weight (#395)
    increased size of degree (#400)

Aside from the above changes, this version also includes many other small \ 
updates including spacing, outline quality
improvements, and fixing hinting.
