The donated code I believe wasn’t identical to what Adobe last release was, however I’m
unsure if it supports right to left text. The best way to find out would be to try it and
see, you would however require a dictionary for the language in question. Most (but not all)
of these are non Adobe license comparable (LGPL). You can obtain other dictionary files from:

The README has instructions on how to add a new dictionary.

There is also some Squiggly examples in Tour De Flex that may help.

There’s not a lot of people working on Squiggly so I think you be safe there. All contributions
are of course welcome.

That I can’t help you with.
