Vafa Khalighi submitted an update to the



Summary description: Support for bidirectional typesetting in plain TeX and LaTeX
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 

In this version, a new experimental package, namely,
bidi-longtable.sty is provided for typesetting bidirectional
longtables with longtable package. bidi-longtable.sty should
be loaded after bidi package.

This is the final version of bidi package and no more updates of bidi package 
will appear.

I am working on a commercial package (namely Simurgh, for typesetting high 
quality Persian/English documents with LuaTeX, which does not have bugs and 
limitations of bidi package) and therefore do not wish to continue the 
development of bidi package. Hence you may like to consider bidi as obsolete and 
may wish to purchase a copy of Simurgh package. If you are interested to 
purchase a copy of Simurgh package, then send me an email. Please do not email 
me with questions/queries about bugs/limitations/usage of bidi package; I am not 
interested in those emails and your email will be deleted immediately without 
replying back


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 .

Thanks for the upload.
