What’s new in babel 3.60


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.
