update harfbuzz to upstream release 1
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:44.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/44.0 Build ID: 20160210153822 Steps to reproduce: https://cgit.freedesktop.org/harfbuzz/commit/?id=75568b0a7f811ea18e23037735ec8541a7431f88 Overview of changes leading to 1.2.3 Thursday, February 25, 2016 ==================================== - Blacklist GDEF table of certain versions of Times New Roman (Bold) Italic, due to bug in glyph class of ASCII double-quote character. This should address "regression" introduced in 1.2.0 when we switched mark zeroing in most shapers from BY_UNICODE_LATE to BY_GDEF_LATE. This fourth release in a week should finally stablize things... - hb-ot-font's get_glyph() implementation saw some optimizations. Though, might be really hard to measure in real-world situations. - Also, two rather small API changes: We now disable some time-consuming internal bookkeeping if built with NDEBUG defined. This is a first time that we use NDEBUG to disable debug code. If there exist production systems that do NOT want to enable NDEBUG, please let me know and I'll add HB_NDEBUG. Added get_nominal_glyph() and get_variation_glyph() instead of get_glyph() New API: - hb_font_get_nominal_glyph_func_t - hb_font_get_variation_glyph_func_t - hb_font_funcs_set_nominal_glyph_func() - hb_font_funcs_set_variation_glyph_func() - hb_font_get_nominal_glyph() - hb_font_get_variation_glyph() Deprecated API: - hb_font_get_glyph_func_t - hb_font_funcs_set_glyph_func() Clients that implement their own font-funcs are encouraged to replace their get_glyph() implementation with a get_nominal_glyph() and get_variation_glyph() pair. The variation version can assume that variation_selector argument is not zero. Old (deprecated) functions will continue working indefinitely using internal gymnastics; it is just more efficient to use the new functions.
Note that we already handle the problem with TNR Italic within Gecko code, so there's no urgency for us to take that harfbuzz fix. (When we do take a new release, we should be able to remove our equivalent workaround; we should also switch to the new get_nominal_glyph() and get_variation_glyph() APIs instead of get_glyph().)

And now, version 1.2.5 is now released. (Note that 1.2.3 and 1.2.4 had a bug that broke mark filter sets; see recent messages on the hb mail-list.)

Summary: update harfbuzz to upstream release 1.2.5 → update harfbuzz to upstream release 1.2.6
Just a routine update. Once this is landed, we can simplify our interface code a bit using the new get_glyph APIs, but I'll do that as a followup.
