Babel 3.9h ---------- This is Babel 3.9h. Version 3.9a fixed lots of bugs and added some new features, intended mainly to make it compatible somehow with Unicode engines. Some bugs have not been fixed to avoid backward incompatibilities, but they have been documented. Most of the new features (like package options) are intended to overcome issues in previous releases without changing significantly the behaviour of Babel. Languages are not part of the Babel core any more; in particular, it shall be no longer necessary to synchronize Babel core releases with releases of Babel language files. See CONTRIB for further details about contributing a language. To install it, just tex babel.ins and move the generated files to the corresponding place in your TeX distribution. Unlike former releases, formats must not be recreated, but it is recommended, at least the first time Babel is updated from 3.8 (or previous versions). Changes are described in babel.pdf with the label "New 3.9". The manual has been expanded to include tips and tricks, but it will be improved in next releases. Please, report bugs and suggestions to: http://latex-project.org/bugs-upload.html You may also report them to the author more informally on: http://www.tex-tipografia.com/contact.html Bugs related to specific languages are best reported to their respective authors.

babel – Multilingual support for Plain TeX or LaTeX
The package manages culturally-determined typographical (and other) rules, and hyphenation patterns for a wide range of languages. A document may select a single language to be supported, or it may select several, in which case the document may switch from one language to another in a variety of ways.Babel uses contributed configuration files that provide the detail of what has to be done for each language. Users of X∃TeX are advised to use polyglossia rather than Babel.
