Javier Bezos López submitted an update to the babel package. Version: 3.75 2022-05-22 License: lppl1.3 Summary description: Multilingual support for LaTeX, LuaLaTeX, XeLaTeX, and Plain TeX Announcement text:
Changes in version 3.75 are described in: https://latex3.github.io/babel/news/whats-new-in-babel-3.75.html Here is a summary: * `\BabelEnsureInfo` is active by default, to make sure the BCP 47 codes are always available, as they may be required by the LaTeX kernel. * `\localeinfo*` is like `\localeinfo` but expands to empty if unknown (fully expandable). * The key `character`/`ranges` in `ini` files now sets the corresponding Unicode script ranges (as used by `onchar`). * Fixes: - Misplaced rule un diagbox (#43) - Caption names of 'chapter' and 'part' swapped in Chinese (#180). - Captions after numbers in Lithuanian. - `hyphenrules` in the `ini` files for `en-AU` and `en-NZ` where set to `english` instead of `ukenglish`.

babel – Multilingual support for LaTeX, LuaLaTeX, XeLaTeX, and Plain TeX

This package manages culturally-determined typographical (and other) rules 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. Included is also a set of ini files for about 250 languages.

Many language styles work with pdf, as well as with XeLaTeX and Lua, out of the box. A few even work with plain formats.
