# What’s new in babel 3.60

2021-06-02

## Global options were messed up

This is a fix for a critical bug (#134).

For the languages to be recognized in class options, babel used a trick which was, admittedly a bit faulty. It used to work, but with the latest changes in the LaTeX kernel class options were messed up, and many documents were spoilt.

## Improvements in Arabic justification

Lists are now correctly formatted when Arabic justification is enabled.

The predefined transform kashida.plain is also available in ar-DZ, ar-MA, ar-SY. Vowels are taken into account.

## Other changes

• Fix #133. Underfull \hbox with amsmath
• Locale ini for Basque has templates for the chapter, appendix, figure and table captions, to place the number before.
