What's the license status?
original version is "let me know if you want something changed, and I'll change it." New version will be under a GNU-compatible license.
Thank you. Does this means that the new version is going to be available through texlive?
pretty sure texlive lets you call CTAN installs already, it just doesn't default-install packages in the "not-free" category (which is a misnomer). But yes, the next version will be submitted to CTAN in the free category and should then be part of the default TeX Live install.
Great! Any hint about when the next version is going to be ready?
not at this time. There's a number of projects I'm working on at the moment, and publishing Japanese text books isn't one of them so I'm not actually a user of my own product atm. Someone had contributed a much better option switching codepath, but I'm not sure what happened to that...
I see. Well then we will have to wait.
Ucharclasses is a great package for those of us that don't use the latin alphabet. I use it mainly to change the hyphenation rules between greek and english. I don't mind installing manually, but people who are new to LaTeX find it difficult to do it (windows users mostly).
Anyway, thank you for your work. Whenever you feel that it is ready we will be waiting for the release :)
found the improved version by Enrico Gregorio. I'll be updating master to that and then resubmit to CTAN. Should make life easier for everyone.
I've read this thread http://tug.org/pipermail/xetex/2012-July/023295.html
but ctan doesn't seem to have any changes http://www.ctan.org/pkg/ucharclasses
so has the new version been uploaded or not?
Gah. Time goes by too quickly T_T
running retests now, if they check out I'll update CTAN (or at least, submit)
Thank you very much. This is great news indeed! :)
v2.0 landed, and submitted to CTAN.
