What’s new in babel 24.2


The list of locales in the manual (in fact, there were several lists) has been reworked.

Error messages

Error messages have to be useful and explanatory: they should not only inform that something has gone wrong – they also have to give clues as to how make it turn out well. For not to clutter the main code, a new mechanism has been devised: the text of the messages (which can be as long as we want) are stored in a separate file, which is only loaded when there is an error.

Currently you won’t notice much difference, but in the future these messages will be improved and others will be added in places where potential errors are not addressed.
