CTAN update: babel
New === New command \babelfont (in Unicode engines) to define language/script dependent fonts. Related to it, new keys (script, language) in \babelprovide. A common mistake is to leave some space(s) in \captions<lang>, which go to the document. Now babel removes them. A couple of fixes: - Error with hyphenrules in \babelprovide in some cases. - \hyphenrules doesn't set \languagename any more (which was against the documented behavior).

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.
