CTAN Update: babel-german

Date: December 9, 2018 11:36:13 AM CET
Jürgen Spitzmüller submitted an update to the babel-german package. Version: 2.11 2018-12-08 License: lppl1.3 Summary description: Babel support for documents written in German Announcement text:
This release fixes an old hyphenation regression which was introduced with babel 3.7 (16 years ago!) in a number of shorthands: Since then, \allowhyphens is deactivated in T1 encoding. Thus, hyphenation did not work as intended in T1 with shorthands that used \allowhyphens. As a fix, babel-german now uses \bbl at allowhyphens which is synonymous to \allowhyphens, except that it works in T1, in these shorthands. Affected by this change: "a "o "u "A "O "U "f "| shorthands, and the \ck macro. Note that this change might affect line/page breaking. But then, the unnoticed regression fixed here did so as well. This change also restitutes compatibility with [n]german.sty for the mentioned shorthands.
