On Sat, 11 Jun 2011 an update to the hyph-utf8 was submitted. Author's name: Mojca Miklavec, Arthur Reutenauer, Manuel Pégourié-Gonnard Summary description: Hyphenation Patterns in UTF-8 License type: other-free Announcement text:
One more version before TeX Live 2011 release will probably follow. Changes since the previous version: - support for loading multiple pattern & exception files in LuaTeX (low level change) - load patterns for Latin and Cyrillic scripts for Serbian simultaneously - Coptic patterns for 8-bit engines are now included in hyph-utf8 - new version of German hyphenation patterns - support both U+0027 and U+2019 as apostrophe in Unicode engines
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/language/hyph-utf8/ . More information is at http://www.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 .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

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.
