New on CTAN: testhyphens

Claudio Beccari submitted the

                testhyphens

package.

Version number: 0.5
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Testing hyphenation patterns 

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

This new package implements some old TUGboat code to adapt it to LaTeX
with some enhancements. It may be used for testing hyphenation patterns
or for controlling that secific words are hyphenated as expected.
Differs form \showhyphens, because it typesets its output on the
document output file. It works also with xelatex, where \showhyphens
requires a workaround.
