Babel 3.9k ---------- This is Babel 3.9k. 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. Versions >=3.9i presumes the german style has been updated to 2.7. New --- * babel.dtx 3.9b - Fixed an idiot slip in hyphen.cfg: a \def instead of \let 3.9c - Added the "modifiers" mechanism - Option shorthands accepts t for ~ and c for , - \foreinglanguage inserted a par (because of an empty line in the doc part) 3.9d - Fixed undefined \@expandtwoargs in Plain - Code reorganized (just an "internal" change) 3.9e - Fixed a bug introduced in 3.9c which mangled key=value options. 3.9f - Default hyphenmins were not set to 2 3. Now they are again. 3.9g - bbplain.dtx and babel.dtx merged. - The number of languages was not printed in some formats. - A new mechanism to force \StartBabelCommands even without the 'strings' key (\UseStrings didn't work at all). - With \AfterBabelCommands macros can be defined in the global scope. - A tool for readjusting lccodes for hyphenation (\SetHyphenMap and a package option). - Tentative macros for \fontspec. 3.9h - Fixed bugs in \SetStringLoop (first token expanded prematurely) and \SetCase (sometimes ignored). - bplain didn't work (again). Fixed. - Other minor internal changes. 3.9i - With LuaTeX, spaces are not ignored after shorthands and closing braces can follow them. - \textlatin and friends are deprecated. For the logos (see below) a new macro is used if necessary (\ensureascii), so \textlatin is not used in the core any more. - \babelensure can be used to wrap caption texts with \foreignlanguage, as well as to enforce an encoding. - \babeltags is just for syntactical sugar, and defines macros with short names to switch the language (eg, \textdeu and \deu). - Partial compatibility with languages named as \lang@ instead of \l@ (plain etex/xetex/luatex). - Bug fix. The logos \TeX and \LaTeX were typeset in a wrong font in some cases. Now if a non-ASCII font is not loaded they are not redefined at all. - Bug fix. \bbl@allowhyphens is now ignored in vertical mode. - Bug fix. Loops with \@for failed in Plain. - Bug fix. A few codes in xetex where wrong when loading patterns. - Bug fix. With strings=encoded captions were left unchanged in \MakeUppercase/\MakeLowercase. 3.9j - Bug fix. Plain formats didn't work (Undefined \@filelist). 3.9k - Code and doc reorganized with some `literate' concepts (with a slightly patched docstrip). - Removed the luatex stuff for shorthands. It was just a first step, but ended up in the final release of 3.9i (it shouldn't). - Improvements for Plain and other non-LaTeX formats. * bbunicode.dtx 1.0b - Improvements by Elie Roux for LuaTeX. 1.0c - Bug fix. A few codes in xetex where wrong when loading patterns. ------------ Javier Bezos 2014-03-24

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.
