Version 3.2.0

The previous version did not work properly when the user did not
opted to use the option listings. Now this has been fixed.

Version 3.1.0 

Introduces the option "listings" that loads the listings package,
adjusts the catcodes of the Greek letters and allows one to properly
use Greek letters in code listings (remember: all modern programming
languages are UTF-8 aware!). It should be obvious, but here is how
one can load the package with this oprion enabled:

\usepackage[listings]{xgreek}

Version 3.0.1 

This version provides a fix to a typo found by a user.


Version 3.0

Include support for LuaLaTeX. Now one can use the package
with either XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX.

Version 2.7

The package option "stigma" did not set the proper character.
Also, all polytonic names consist now of characters from the
Extended Greek Unicode block.


Version 2.61

In the previous version the uppercase of 'GREEK SMALL LETTER RHO WITH DASIA' (U+1FE5)
was set to be 'GREEK CAPITAL LETTER RHO WITH DASIA' (U+1FEC) while the correct is
'GREEK CAPITAL LETTER RHO' (U+03A1). This version fixes this problem. Thanks to 
Claudio Beccari and G√ľnter Milde for finding this bug.


Version 2.6

In this version the definition of \anwtonos and \katwtonos have been
changed and now the commands expand to the correspong symbol and not
to some \char"03XX\relax sequence. It seems the previous definitions
did not work with some packages.


Version 2.5

By default the package enables the indentation even for first paragraph 
after any header. This is the default in Greek typography. However, some
users wanted to be able to disable this "feature". Now, users can 
specify the noindentfirst option to achieve this. Also, some users wanted
to be able to have the Greek numerals that appear in enumerations and
chapter headers to get printed without the NUMERAL SIGN. This feature
can be turned on with the new option nonumeralsign. Fianlly, command
\anoteleia can be used to get an ANO TELEIA character. 

Version 2.4

Two erroneous entries in \@ncientn@mes have been deleted.

Version 2.3

In this version the \stigma command expands to the letters sigma tau.
If one wants this command to expand to the stigma symbol, she has to
use the stigma package option.


Version 2.2

Removed the first entry of \refname in \@ncientn@mes.

Version 2.1

I have introduced some new \lccode-\uccode pairs that
reflect current changes in Unicode 5.2 while I have corrected the
values for an existing pair. 


Version 2.0

Package xgreek  has been designed so to allow people to typeset 
Greek language documents using XeLaTeX. And 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 
invoced with any of the following options: monogreek (for 
typesetting modern monotonic Greek), polygreek (for typesetting 
modern polytonic Greek), and ancientgreek (for typesetting 
ancient texts). The default option is monogreek. The command
\setlanguage{lang} to activate the hyphenation patterns of the 
lang. The format file should be built with standard tools. The 
contents of a minimal language.dat file follow:

american        ushyphmax.tex
ancientgreek    loadhyph-grc.tex
monogreek       loadhyph-el-monoton.tex
greek           loadhyph-el-polyton.tex
=polygreek

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.
