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)
        image
        Additionally, ss20 includes the oft-unused graphical representations of \ 
these codepoints (for fun!)
        image

    Full support for Fira Code's current ligature set (with a few exceptions). \ 
Now featuring infinite arrows!!! (#276)
        image
        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 \ 
(#264)
    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)
    refactoring

Changes

    Added x-height instruction into ttfautohint to control the (#371)
    height of the lowercase.
    Completely redesigned quote marks for better recognition (#375)
        image
        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)
        image
    updated heights on esh, glottalstop, glottalstopreversed (#383)
        image
    tweaked hinting a little bit (#384)
    added remaining soft-dotting (#386)
        image
    changed designs of the angled quotes (#392)
        image
    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)
        image
    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.

cascadia-ttf: update to 2009.22.

2009.22

We realized the Freetype rendering issue documented in #350 had
been addressed in neither 2009.14 nor 2009.21. To that end, this
is a reissue of 2009.21 with that workaround in place.

So, without further ado (and with a new build pipeline thanks to
@madig!):

    We have implemented a workaround for a freetype rendering issue
    that resulted in chunky rendering for certain glyphs (#350)
    This bugfix release to the Cascadia family of fonts fixes
    diacritic positioning for the Salishan languages.

2009.14

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

    Cascadia now has support for the Salishan languages of the
    Pacific Northwest and other coastal scripts!
    We've fixed an issue in the -<< ligature that caused it to
    overlap itself at certain font weights (#355)
    We remastered mark positioning for glyphs with existing diacritics
    for improved design for letters with multiple diacritics above

Log message:
cascadia-ttf: update to 2008.25.

This update to the Cascadia family of fonts brings the following changes:

    We are now generating static TTFs for every named variant
        These static instances will be hinted using ttfautohint, and so will \ 
look different than the variable font at small and intermediate point sizes
    We've temporarily stopped shipping variable OTFs due to some concerns about \ 
overlapping and psautohint
    The heaviest weight of Cascadia has been made a little lighter
    We have aligned the Powerline glyphs and the box-/line-drawing glyphs better \ 
to their metrics and to the letter glyphs
    Diacritic anchors have been added to all alphabetic characters (#282, #330)
    The font now ships with decomposed fi and fl ligatures
    The horn combining diacritic has had its weight fixed somewhat for Bold
    Primes have been redesigned to give them a more "angled" feel (#294)
    Acute and grave have been given additional weight to help differentiate them \ 
from dot (#268)
    The contextual alternate for x used to signify hexadecimal numbers has been \ 
disabled (#285)

Log message:
cascadia-ttf: update to 2007.01.

The Cascadia font family is now available with a variable weight axis ranging \ 
from extra-light (200) to bold (700).

In addition, the following bugs were fixed and changes were made:

Changes

    The double-equals ligature == has been updated to improve visual clarity (image)
    The diacritics on IJacute are no longer malformed
    We've introduced a set of compatibility features to improve the rendering of \ 
powerline glyphs in legacy GDI applications
