CTAN Update: babel
Changes in version 3.46 are described in: https://github.com/latex3/babel/wiki/What's-new-in-babel-3.46 Here is a summary: - \BabelEnsureInfo now loads the basic data for the requested languages immediately (formerly it was done at the end of the preamble). - Fixes: - Getting rid of the hyphen in XeTeX was not working as expected. A new procedure has been devised. - tag.bcp47 now contains what its name promises, instead of just the language subtag (#70). - Locale info was not loaded if the name had uppercase letters in some OSs (#80). - The [..|..] syntax in ini dates didn't recognize 'digits'.

babel – Multilingual support for LaTeX, LuaLaTeX, XeLaTeX, and Plain TeX
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, as well as .ini files for about 275 languages from around the World, including many written in non-Latin and RTL scripts. Many of them work with pdfLaTeX, as well as with XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX, out of the box. A few even work with plain formats.
