text-hyphen 1.3

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}[] and the {Ruby port}[]. The language hyphenation pattern files are based on the sources available from {CTAN}[] as of 2004.12.19 and have been manually translated by Austin Ziegler. This is a small feature release adding support for custom hyphens and fixing a bug in ruby-hyphen. This release provides both Ruby 1.8.7 and Ruby 1.9.2 support. This is the last major release supporting Ruby 1.8 interpreters. Future versions will only work with Ruby 1.9 or later interpreters.
