# What’s new in babel 3.79

2022-08-29

This is basically a maintenance release, with some refactoring, minor improvements in error catching, and a few names in `ini` files fixed.

Following the CLDR, now the preferred name for ‘or’ is `odia`, although `oriya` is still valid.

# Fixes

• Fix issues of tcolorbox in RTL (graphics layout) (#186), thanks to Salim Bou (@seloumi).
• `\footnote` with `bidi=default` raises an error in LuaLaTeX (#187).
• Extra blank spaces with Hebrew calendar.

# Known issues

With the latest changes in the LaTeX core, `\MakeUppercase` and `\MakeLowercase`, `babel` casing might be broken. For example, with Medieval Latin, `\MakeUppercase{lupus}` now prints ‘LUPUS’ instead of ‘LVPVS’. A fix is on the way.
