Liblinebreak is an implementation of the line breaking algorithm as described in Unicode Standard Annex 14. It breaks lines that contain Unicode characters. It is designed to be used in a generic text renderer. FBReader is one real-world example.

A bug was fixed in which an assertion in code can fail if an invalid UTF-8 or UTF-16 sequence is encountered near the end of input. The specialization of right single quotation mark as a closing punctuation mark in English, French, and Spanish was removed because it can be used as apostrophe. The Doxygen documentation was made better.
This release is a transitional release for a 2.0 release that will reduce the namespace pollution by prefixing `lb_' to symbols that users generally do not use directly. Existing users should not be impacted generally. However, new users are expected to use is_line_breakable instead of is_breakable, and remember that get_next_char_utf* will be renamed.
