What’s new in babel 3.70
With the transform
prehyphen.nobreak line breaks just after hyphens
prepended to words are prevented, like in “pakastekaapit ja -arkut”.
More precisely, in the sequence [space or punctuation] + [hyphen] +
[alphanumeric], the hyphen is moved to the beginning of the following
line if necessary. This makes unnecessary to write systematically
in these situations.
Remember transforms are not available in XeTeX or pdfTeX, which still require the shorthand. This is a LuaTeX-only feature.

Please, note these fixes are basically dirty tricks to get the most
typical cases to work, after a ‘hunting’ in search of possible issues
in every environment, with right and left tags. The pending issues are

because of long standing bugs in

equation, based on the length of the previous line, are reversed (the
\eqno is that for
\leqno and vice versa).
There also some fixes for the standard
