CTAN has a new pack­age: Hyphen­ation Pat­terns in UTF-8

Date: June 22, 2008 11:01:44 AM CEST
Please note that the lo­ca­tion of this pack­age has been changed to lan­guage/hyph-utf8 (and the pack­age iden­ti­fier has changed also). Thank you, Jim Hef­feron Saint Michael's Col­lege ............................................................................. The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low con­trib­u­tor: Name of con­tri­bu­tion: Hyphen­ation Pat­terns in UTF-8 Author's name: Jonathan Kew, Mo­jca Miklavec, Arthur Reutenauer Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: lan­guage/hyph-utf8 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Hyphen­ation pat­terns have been con­verted into UTF-8 and should serve as a re­place­ment for the old pat­terns with­out any change in func­tion­al­ity. The pat­terns should be con­sid­ered up­stream re­place­ment that will be used in TeX Live and other dis­tru­bu­tions in­stead of lod­ing the old files. Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
Na­tive UTF-8 en­gines such as XeTeX and LuaTeX have urged the need to pro­vide hy­phen­ation pat­terns in UTF-8 for­mat. Th­ese pat­terns should re­place the old ones even­tu­ally. This is the first up­load to CTAN that will en­able test­ing for TeX Live 2008 and is not yet set in stone. In par­tic­u­lar we still want to change all the copy­right notes in pat­terns, and add some doc­u­men­ta­tion. SVN repos­i­tory is avail­able on http://www.tug.org/svn/tex­hy­phen. Bug re­ports and fea­ture re­quests wel­come.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/lan­guage/hyph-utf8 . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/hyph-utf8 (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html .

hyph-utf8 – Hyphen­ation pat­terns ex­pressed in UTF-8

Modern na­tive UTF-8 en­gines such as and Lua need hy­phen­ation pat­terns in UTF-8 for­mat, whereas older sys­tems re­quire hy­phen­ation pat­terns in the 8-bit en­cod­ing of the font in use (such en­cod­ings are cod­i­fied in the scheme with names like OT1, T2A, TS1, OML, LY1, etc).

The present pack­age of­fers a col­lec­tion of con­ver­sions of ex­ist­ing pat­terns to UTF-8 for­mat, to­gether with con­vert­ers for use with 8-bit fonts in older sys­tems. Since hy­phen­ation pat­terns for Knuthian-style sys­tems are only read at ini time, it is hoped that the UTF-8 pat­terns, with their con­vert­ers, will com­pletely sup­plant the older pat­terns.
