iWork For iCloud Beta: Still No RTL Or Indic Support

The update for iWork for iCloud Beta announced by Apple January 23, 2014 (the 3rd since its initial release to the public last July) did not fix the broken support for Arabic/Hebrew or Indic scripts.  The characters for Arabic are unconnected and in reverse order, while for Indic scripts vowel reordering and conjunct formation is not possible.   The languages involved are used by about 1 billion people.

iWork for iCloud doesn't even support international *English* dialects (it marks British spellings as wrong), much less other languages. The interface still doesn't support multiple languages (not even Latin-script languages, much less Arabic, Hebrew or Indic scripts). It's really ridiculous.
