./print/tex-babel, Multilingual support for Plain TeX or LaTeX

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.33, Package name: tex-babel-3.33, Maintainer: minskim

The package manages culturally-determined typographical (and other)
rules, and hyphenation patterns for a wide range of languages. A
document may select a single language to be supported, or it may
select several, and the document may then switch from one language to
another in a variety of ways.


Required to run:
[print/kpathsea] [print/tex-latex] [print/tex-graphics] [print/tex-carlisle]

Required to build:

3.28
- Fixes - wrong dir after math, in math inside tabular, in weak L
  inside R inside L, and in boxes inside math.

- \babelfont now takes into account \defaultfontfeatures. This
  is a potential source of backwards incompatibilities, but
  very likely the risks are very low, and it is, I think, the
  expected behavior.

3.29
 The fix for boxes inside math with bidi=basic(-r) broke AMS.
 I've removed the fix (a better one is under study)

3.30
- Fix: dir in boxes inside math (hopefully now it works).

- Option mapdigits for \babelprovide (only luatex).

3.31
- Basic support for line breaking with CJK scripts.

- layout=tabular now works with the 'array' package (and some
  others).

Log message:
tex-babel{,-doc}: update to 3.27

- Preliminary support for bidi (by Vafa Khalighi) with xetex.
- Fix for 3.23 - \ensureascii was redefined even when not
  necessary.
- Minor improvements in babel-vi.ini.

Log message:
tex-babel{,-doc}: update to 3.18

3.18
- More bidi in luatex: captions (required only in multilingual
  docs) and tabular (required for R tables). Also an experimental
  support for captions in xetex and pdftex (tabular is not yet
  supported).
- New ini files: ar-DZ, ar-MA, ar-SY
- Fix - \begin{hyphenrules} didn't work with polyglossia.
- Fix - switch.def was loaded twice.

3.17
- A tool for bidi footnotes.
- Fix -- \ragged... didn't work for bidi.

3.16
 - New package option layout for bidi documents.

 - Quotes in TU encoding

 - Fix - \<language>date did not work correctly

 - Fix - with some languages (eg, british), using
   \babelfont raised an error.

3.15
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).
