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).

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.
