Bj"orn Jacke has submitted an update to the rmligs package:
New version 0.87; the changes since v0.84 (previously on CTAN) are:
> 0.87: fix off-by-one bug in words with character encoded like o"
> 0.86: now GPLv2 _and_ GPLv3
> 0.85: fix ligature removement of two or more ligatures/word, words like
> "zweifle" keep their ligature now: the l must be considered to
> belong to the word stem, just the e is left out, new words

rmligs – Remove incorrect ligatures in German documents
Ligatures, which are a pleasing feature of TeX's use of fonts,
should not be placed in German words between the word stem and the
rest of the word.
The rmligs package is a perl script that takes input in ISO 8859-1
or -15, UTF-8 or LaTeX-style umlaut encodings ("a,
"u, etc.), and inserts a break where an inappropriate
ligature would appear. So, for example, ‘Auflage’
will be changed to ‘Auf"|lage’, which typesets in a
typographically correct fashion.
