[reportlab-users] pyfribidi / fribidi versions

Hello everybody,

I successfully used Fribidi-0.19.1-2 with PyFribidi-0.10.0 on openSUSE 11.1 over Python 2.6.0, but I had to make some little changes to "pyfribidi.c" to make it work. I think there was a problem that was fixed in later versions of Python, so Python 2.6.4 or later should work. Let me check it again when I return home, and I'll update you with the latest status.

Thank you,

I am using fribidi 0.19.2 in conjuction with pyfribidi2 (0.8.0) and the rtl-support branch seems to be working. But unfortunately I can't provide any further insight regarding fribidi
