Idris Samawi Hamid submitted the

                almfixed

package.

Version number: 0.92
License type: gfl

Summary description: Arabic-Latin Modern Fixed extends TeX-Gyre Latin
                     Modern Mono 10 Regular to full Arabic Unicode
                     support

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. For more details, see README.txt. For more extensive documentation,
examples, and background; see almfixed-dtk.pdf.

2. Arabic-Latin Modern Fixed is an extension of TeX-Gyre Latin Modern
Mono 10 Regular. Every glyph and opentype feature of the Latin Modern
Mono has been retained, with minor improvements. On the other hand, we
have changed the vertical metrics of the font. Although the Arabic
script is designed to use the same x-size as Latin Modern Mono, the
former script needs greater ascender and descender space. 

3. Every Arabic glyph in each Unicode-code block is supported (up to
Unicode 7.0): Arabic, Arabic Supplement, Arabic Extended, Arabic
Presentation-Forms A, and Arabic Presentation-Forms B.
