comment package babel causes compilation error after OS X 10.10 Yosemite installation
@PauloMendes. Are you sure? \bbl@ifshorthand didn't exist until 2012.

\setlanguage is not a babel command. Please, provide a MWE.

Please, could you post the code used in fancyhdr?

comment How to change between languages without using a command?
That only solves glyphs/characters, but typographical rules, including hyphenation, cannot be switched automatically in general (not only TeX, so "in general" means exactly that). By the way, for a Greek, the foreign language is English :-).

I presume what you need is to install a recent version of babel.

Actually, KeepShorthandsActive has been there for ages.

comment What is the kvoptions-patch's equivalent of \@classoptionslist?
It seems kvoptions-patch redefines \ProcessOptions to use \XK..@classoptionslist instead of \@classoptionslist. However, the LaTeX option mechanism doesn't recognize a global option if it's not explicitly declared in the package, so babel traverses \@classoptionslist to define them if necessary. Just wondering if just defining both macros will be enough.

comment Error using \ref in captions with Tufte and Babel
I'm investigating, but if you don't use shorthands in \ref you can use the package option safe=bib or safe=none.

(Note. I meant the \AtBeginDocument hook, not the aux file.)

comment Problem with babel and fontspec
Found -- fontspec formerly made sure \latinencoding was EUx after loading the .aux file, but that's not true any more. Which means now babel must be loaded before. I presume this change in fontspec will break lots of documents :-(.

comment Problem with babel and fontspec
@Bernard Yes, it works with both xe and lua, but I've realized I'm using an old release of fontspec (which has been updated recently). Perhaps something changed in the latest fontspec.

comment Biblatex Customization and Problem with Babel
@krypt Thanks. Confirmed -- both babel and babelbib are patching \Make...case. Perhaps babelbib is more 'canonical', so I'll investigate how to modify babel for them to be compatible.

comment Biblatex Customization and Problem with Babel
@dfr Of course, as far as TeX is concerned. I was speaking of biber.

comment Problem with babel and fontspec
Works fine for me (babel 3.9k). Which version are you using? Note the latest release revises the font encoding stuff, which in some cases leaded to wrong results even with pdfTeX (as explained in the manual). In fact, \latinencoding is now deprecated.

comment Biblatex Customization and Problem with Babel
@krypt After latexing this file you must process a file with biber, which creates another file. I mean the latter, the generated file.

comment Biblatex Customization and Problem with Babel
Sorry, I'm unable to use biber for win. Please, ¿could you post a MWE not requiring generating any file? After reading the biblatex code I think both this package and babel are trying to patch \Make...case in incompatible ways, but I need to confirm it.

comment Biblatex Customization and Problem with Babel
I'll have a look at it, but I first need to reinstall biblatex and related tools (biber raises on my system an error related to a dll).
