CTAN Update: babel-french

Daniel Flipo submitted an update to the

                babel-french

package.

Version:  3.2b  2016-04-18
License:  lppl1.3

Summary description:  Babel contributed support for French

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Update for LuaTeX 0.95 and XeTeX 0.99996 as included in TeXLive 2016.

 Note to Lua(La)TeX users: the lua code included in frenchb.lua v.~3.2b
 will not work on older installations (TL2015 f.i.), so babel-french
 reverts to active characters while handling high punctuation with
 LuaTeX engines older than 0.95!

 Xe(La)TeX and pdf(La)TeX users can safely use babelfrench v.~3.2b on
 older installations too.

CTAN update: shdoc

Simon Michael Laube submitted an update to the

package.

Version number: 2.1
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Float environment to document the shell commands
of a terminal session

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The package provides a simple, though fancy float environment to
document terminal sessions – like command executions or shell
operations. The look and feel of the package output imitates the look
of a shell prompt.

Version v2.1 features a major bug fix in the *.dtx source, as well as a
bunch of new macros. They allow the user to automate things even more
by executing the shell commands from within the LaTeX source and
capture their output, which is formatted and typeset right after the
execution. Further, it is now possible to read saved sessions from a
file.

CTAN update: arabluatex

Robert Alessi submitted an update to the

                 arabluatex

package.

Version number: 1.1.1
License type: gpl3

Summary description: An ArabTeX-like interface for LuaLaTeX

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
This package provides for LuaLaTeX an ArabTeX-like interface to generate 
Arabic writing from an ascii transliteration. It is
particularly well-suited for complex documents such as technical documents 
or critical editions where a lot of left-to-right commands
intertwine with Arabic writing. arabluatex is able to process any ArabTeX 
input notation. Its output can be set in the same modes of
vocalization as ArabTeX, or in different roman transliterations. It 
further allows many typographical refinements. It will eventually
interact with some other packages yet to come to produce from .tex source 
files, in addition to printed books, TEI xml compliant
critical editions and/or lexicons that can be searched, analyzed and 
correlated in various ways.
