Summary description: An ArabTeX-like interface for XeLaTeX

Announcement text:
After 5 years of inactivity, this is release 1.2.0 of ArabXeTeX.

Changes from version 1.1.4 include:

- Fix problem with plain footnotes (http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/223081/arabxetex-and-footnote)
- Remove obsolete and superfluous parts from documentation
- Default Arabic font is now Amiri instead of Scheherazade and Amiri is also used in the documentation.
- Include a pull request from Khaled Hosny:
   * Improves the documentation and notably clears up the confusion around U+FDF2. Consequently the options fdf2alif and 
fdf2noalif are now DEPRECATED, as well as the commands \SetAllahWithAlif and \SetAllahWithoutAlif.
   * Fix placement of tanwin fatah
   * Fix handling of end of ayeh symbol in mapping
