CTAN update: babel

Date: November 4, 2017 10:05:09 PM CET
Javier Bezos López submitted an update to the babel package. Version number: 3.15 2017-11-03 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Multilingual support for Plain TeX or LaTeX Announcement text:
New === New command \babelfont (in Unicode engines) to define language/script dependent fonts. Related to it, new keys (script, language) in \babelprovide. A common mistake is to leave some space(s) in \captions<lang>, which go to the document. Now babel removes them. A couple of fixes: - Error with hyphenrules in \babelprovide in some cases. - \hyphenrules doesn't set \languagename any more (which was against the documented behavior).

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.
