CTAN Up­date: ba­bel

Javier Be­zos sub­mit­ted an up­date to the ba­bel pack­age, which is part of the LaTeX re­quired pack­age's. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Mul­tilin­gual sup­port for Plain TeX or LaTeX Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
Ba­bel 3.9b ver­sion fixes lots of bugs and adds some new fea­tures (in­tended mainly to make it com­pat­i­ble with Uni­code en­gines). Some bugs have not been fixed to avoid back­ward in­com­pat­i­bil­i­ties, but they have been doc­u­mented. Most of the new fea­tures (like pack­age op­tions) are in­tended to over­come is­sues in pre­vi­ous re­leases with­out chang­ing sig­nif­i­cantly the be­haviour of Ba­bel. Start­ing with this ver­sion, ba­bel has been sep­a­rated in a core (or "base") part, and con­tributed lan­guage-spe­cific pack­age's. The core part is lo­cated in the sub­di­rec­tory base, the con­trib part is ac­tu­ally a link into CTAN's macros/la­tex/con­trib sub­tree.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/re­quired/ba­bel . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/ba­bel (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 . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html .
Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

ba­bel – Mul­tilin­gual sup­port for Plain or

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 200 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.
