FriBidi is a free implementation of the Unicode Bidirectional (BiDi) Algorithm. It also provides utility functions to aid in the development of interactive editors and widgets that implement BiDi functionality. The BiDi algorithm is a prerequesite for supporting right-to-left scripts such as Hebrew, Arabic, Syriac, and Thaana.

Release Notes: Fribidi has undergone a major rewrite for the sake of full compliance with the Unicode reference implementation.
Release Notes: A speed patch has been applied that makes fribidi almost 4 times faster. The algorithm has been updated according to the latest Unicode specification. (Still no explicit overrides, though.) Support has been added for the LRM and RLM characters for the iso-8859-8 converters at unused positions 0xFE and 0xFF.
