On Tue, 14 Jul 2009, Vafa Khalighi submitted an update to the


package for persian typesetting in XeLaTeX.

Location on CTAN: /macros/xetex/latex/xepersian/
Summary description: Persian for LaTeX over XeTeX.
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
This the new release of the xepersian package (v1.0.1). It
fixes all the know bugs and is written from scratch with
improved macros. Unfortunately there is no documentation due
to my illness but feel free to ask your questions at google
farsilatex group at


or XeTeX mailing list.
There are some examples that will help you understand how
the package works. Before looking at xepersian examples make
sure you look at bidi examples as xepersian depends on the
bidi package. 

This package is located at 
.  More information is at
(if the package is new it may take a day for that information to 
appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .  
Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .

Thanks for the upload.
