CTAN Update: babel
Most changes are for LuaTeX: - The main new feature is a bidi method for both implicit L in R text, and implicit R in L text, with the possibility of switching the font automatically. Still somewhat experimental, but it should work in most cases. - layout=extras for a couple of miscellaneous readjustments. - bidi equation numbers. Also, for all engines, new field in some ini files: digits.native (to be used in future releases).

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 may alternatively use polyglossia instead of Babel.
