CTAN Update: babel
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 packages. 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 TeX or LaTeX
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 pdfLaTeX, as well as with XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX, out of the box. A few even work with plain formats.
