CTAN update: xgreek

Date: January 2, 2024 12:01:07 PM CET
Apostolos Syropoulos submitted an update to the xgreek package. Version: 3.3.0 2024-01-01 License: lppl1.3c Summary description: Greek Language Support for XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX Announcement text:
The new implementation of the \MakeUppercase command ingores \uccode and \lccode commands and so the output of \MakeUppercase is wrong when Greek text is the argument of the command. In this version, I replaced all the \uccode and the corresponding \lccode commands with the required new \DeclareUppercaseMapping and \DeclareLowercaseMapping commands. Now \MakeUppercase works as expected. In addition, I have added a detailed explanation of the grammatical rule that dictates this change.

xgreek – Greek Language Support for XeLaTeX and Lua

This package has been designed so to allow people to typeset Greek language documents using XeLaTeX or Lua. It is released in the hope that people will use it and spot errors, bugs, features so to improve it. Practically, it provides all the capabilities of the greek option of the babel package. The package can be invoked with any of the following options: monotonic (for typesetting modern monotonic Greek), polytonic (for typesetting modern polytonic Greek), and ancient (for typesetting ancient texts). The default option is monotonic.

The command \setlanguage{<lang>} activates the hyphenation patterns of the language <lang>. This, however, can only be done if the format file has not been built with the babel mechanism.
