Text-hyphen 1.4 Released

text-hyphen version 1.4 has been released!

Text::Hyphen is a Ruby library to hyphenate words in various languages
using
Ruby-fied versions of TeX hyphenation patterns. It will properly
hyphenate
various words according to the rules of the language the word is written
in.
The algorithm is based on that of the TeX typesetting system by Donald
E.
Knuth.

This is originally based on the Perl implementation of
{TeX::Hyphen}[http://search.cpan.org/author/JANPAZ/TeX-Hyphen-0.140/lib/TeX/Hyphen.pm]
and the {Ruby port}[http://rubyforge.org/projects/text-format]. The
language
hyphenation pattern files are based on the sources available from
{CTAN}[http://www.ctan.org] as of 2004.12.19 and have been manually
translated
by Austin Z…

This is a small feature release adding Russian language support and
fixing a
bug in the custom hyphen support introduced last version. This release
provides
both Ruby 1.8.7 and Ruby 1.9.2 support (but please read below). In
short, Ruby
1.8 support is deprecated and I will not be providing any bug fixes
related to
Ruby 1.8. New features will be developed and tested against Ruby 1.9
only.

Changes:

1.4 / 2012.08.25

  • Feature:
  • Bug Fix:
    • Visualization with hyphens larger than one character (such as the
      HTML
      soft-hyphen entity) would not be correct; this has been resolved.
      Thanks to
