CTAN Update: babel
What's new ---------- - Existing ldf files take priority over declared options with \DeclareOption (except hebrew). - With a few exceptions, ini files have reached version 1.0. - New key `import' for \babelprovide, which also defines dates. This means babel currently provides (total or partial) support for about 200 languages. Many of them are usable with XeTeX and LuaTeX. Current development is focused on Unicode engines, mainly font handling and bidi writing.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/babel The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/required/babel/base/

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 XeTeX are advised to use polyglossia rather than Babel.
