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 .

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.
