# What’s new in babel 3.74

2022-04-30

## Option safe

This option will be set by default to none in a future release (even currently this value is “strongly” recommended). This option now accepts the combination of bib and ref as a way to force the current behavior.

The internal macros related to this option (containing @safe@actives) will be preserved for compatibility, but very likely they will be deprecated.

## Fixes in math

luatex 1.15 fixes a bug in the vertical spacing when a display math is preceded by a short line in RTL mode. This has allowed to eventually get the proper spacing, although there are some issues when the display isn’t numbered (there is an easy workaround and babel applies it).

The vertical spacing with amsmath has been improved, too, but there are, again, some pending issues (bad spacing when the display starts a paragraph).

## More fixes

• Minor bugs in Khmer, Turkmen and Marathi have been fixed.
• An error was raised with transforms when | was active.
