%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
% Last updates, starting after releasing version 3,20 (May, 11th, 1993):
% ===========
% - V 3,21  - french.sty was unloadable with plain TeX (pointed by DT)
%             few definitions need to be made in a different way
%             (in fact outside any \@ifundefined mechanism).      --bg 06/14/93
% this will be the PATCH 1 of the distribution.
% - V 3,22  - Replacing \nomorefrench by \endfrench to allow 
%             people to code \begin{french}...\end{french}        --bg 06/25/93
%           - Incorrect block propagation trough \lettrine
%             processing (pointed by Jacques Andr\'e).            --bg 06/28/93
%           - \fromaddress printed in a \vbox of 0pt.            Ronan 06/30/93
%           - Put \toaddress at the previous place (4 lines below)--bg 07/01/93
% - V 3,23  - < adapted for AmSLaTeX when followed by \frac as
%                 pointed by Jacques Beigbeder.                   
%           - @ can now be \undefined (pointed by Daniel Taupin).
%           - Former definition of \vert was not saved. New def
%             called former def of \verb (pointed by D. Taupin).  --bg 08/09/93
%           - New version of the @-save-restore mechanism.          DT 08/10/93
%           - Hanging of \lettrine lines can be forced via
%             \def\lettrinehang{n} (J.Andre pointed the pb with Q)--bg 08/10/93
%           - As in babel (TUGboat V14#1 p 60), now defining
%             \prefacename (but unused in french.sty because its
%             definition is looking really simple:
%                     \def\preface{\chapter*{\prefacename}} 
%             BUT NOTICE that the page numbering of a french preface
%                        is usually in roman.                     
%             Babel currently define \languagename as a string of
%             "other" characters; in my opinion i prefer to differ
%             this definition until we come back to "normal" chars.
%           - Sets the orientation of writing as in TeX--XeT
%           - use \FontEncoding if already defined instead of
%                 any other code.                                 --bg 08/17/93
% this will be the PATCH 2 of the distribution.
% -V 3,24 - \bibcite[ pointed wrongly to the original \cite.      
%         - Redefinition of \c in \@wrglossary suppressed since 
%           \c is now correctly defined in hyconfig (MJF mods).   --bg 08/19/93
%         - 8-bit codes for << and >> must not be expanded as 
%           usual with our grouping mechanism when they are
%           inside a verbatim (test is made "a contrario" to see
%           if < or > are \active).                               --bg 08/27/93
%         - Replace \FontEncoding by \encodingdefault of NFSS2.   --bg 08/31/93
%         - NFSS2 code added for guillemets.                      
%           I have noticed that \ref can't be used in math mode
%           with NFSS2 because \ref calls \bf!                    
%         - Using the current encoding if any (\f@encoding).      --bg 09/01/93
%         - \@Hif \@Hfi globaly defined (until other language defs
%              use them).                                         --bg 09/03/93
%         - \noabbreviations was wrongly called by default. It
%              forced \catcode`"=12 (as shown by R.D.Cosmo).      --bg 09/06/93
% V3,25 - \relax wrongly introduced recently in <<.               
%       - \footnote now start with \nobreak to allow hyphenation of
%         previous word (as suggested by Bernd Raichle).          --bg 09/07/93
%       - \@FrDimenH was undefined with \flettrine.               --bg 09/13/93
%       - < and > striped the following braces, specially wrong
%         in maths as pointed by Sylvio Levy. Code \@PreserveBraces
%         added for this purpose.                                 --bg 09/16/93
%       - \lettrine{Essx} striped off ss... (wrong \ifx#2...).    --bg 09/17/93
%       - \the\font replaced by \font in \xxtthyphenation.        --bg 09/27/93
%       - Revisiting < and > codes for simplification and validation
%         of all known test cases. It's now possible to use < and >
%         in macro definitions such like \def\truc<#1|#2>{...}.   --bg 09/29/93
%       - Having no answer from YH i remove the test on
%         \OzTeXUnPointQuatre for OzTeX 1.4 \openin problem.      
%       - "Lettrine" placement revisited. Begining \smallskip 
%         removed. Now independent of the font used. 
%         Warning issued for an alone letter.                     --bg 10/05/93
%       - Define \endenglish if not already done.                 --bg 10/06/93
%       - Test of < and > active removed from \EBCDICbrackets
%         otherwise "<<" and ">>" would never print guillemets.   
%         But now, reversely, 8-bit guillemets print brackets.    
%       - \@genG and \@BracesOrNot \long defined to allow
%         <\par and >\par.                                        
%       - define \lettrine only if not already defined(RK request)--bg 10/08/93
%       - \thanks now \unskip previous space, as our \footnote do.
%       - Spaces ignored after \endfrench and \endnonfrench.
%         Space removed after \beginL.                            --bg 10/11/93
%       - \lettrinehang is automaticaly incremented when used for
%         char which has a depth.                                 --bg 10/19/93
%       - \englishdoublequotes with NFSS2 bypass (as pointed by
%         Denis B. Roegel, log messages issued are not enough
%         protected). This is a bypass (test of hmode added)      --bg 10/21/93
%       - \ifFMA wasn't intially set to \ErrFrench.               
%       - Option "slidesonly" of seminar gobbled french initialization 
%         which should be made at \begin{document} (as pointed by 
%         Denis B. Roegel) and then produced further errors and at
%         least at \end{document}. This is just a bypass:
%         \document modified to inhibit xcomment.sty at this time.--bg 10/28/93
%       - As shown by Denis B. Roegel "L'{\tt a}" produced a loop
%         with NFSS2. This is again a problem of NFSS2 in which
%         all characters are not enough protected. Improved again.--bg 11/04/93
%       - \endguillemets had erroneously a \space included.       --bg 11/05/93
%       - \cite[<< ... >>] output was not in French (as pointed by
%                                               by Jacques Andre).
%         By the way, starting to do a more general macro replacement
%         mechanism. To be completed in further distributions?    --bg 11/08/93
%       - \cite{X} printed [X,] (as pointed by D.Girou).          --bg 11/18/93
%       - \wrontypedspaces now forbidden without previous
%         \letpunctuationactivefor (Denis B.Roegel used it wrongly
%         in the order \usersfrenchoptions).                      --bg 11/24/93
%       - Space missing in lettrines when used in English. But
%         then let a wrong one for a mono-char lettrine.          --bg 11/25/93
% This version is now released as V3,25 of the 25th of November, 1993.

%        As people often use <} and >} in maths it was needed to be

%         This point was reported by D.Roegel.                    --bg 97/09/16
%       Removed empty {} from "; : ? !" expansions (generated a wrong
%         blank space in maths).                                  
%       \sommaire corrected to take arg in account (bad mod on
%         97/07/23).                                              --bg 97/09/29
%       A day try to run friendly with the polyglot package but
%         found no issue to the sample test in OT1, no solution to
%         the \pg@begin command in glossary file, as well as for
%         unfilled toc, lof and lot file.                         --bg 97/10/08
%       \allowhyphens introduced for use in a compound word for 
%         example to obtain all hypenation points, like in
%         "socio-\allowhyphens culturel". This was pointed to me
%         by P.Perichon.                                          --bg 97/10/23
%       Pass option french to known packages. \@xtrasfrench code
%         added if any (equal to \extrasfrench outside babel).
%       Allow "french" to be a global option.
%       Use \RequirePackage to load latexsym.                     --bg 97/10/31
%       Removed begining space in \partname when the part has
%         no valid number.                                        --bg 97/11/05
%       \slidename now defined (targeting seminar).               --bg 97/11/18
%       More on hyphenation: inside \hyphenation the macro \- is
%         exacly like a blank space, thus allowing separated words
%         of a compound word to be hyphenated if \allowhyphens is
%         used. Notice that \allowhyphens is put before or after
%         the hyphen char depending whether you like hyphenation
%         of the preceding or the next word component. \allowhyphens
%         can only be used inside usual text, not inside the cs
%         \hyphenation.                                           --bg 97/11/19
%       \ifWTS set defaultly to \iffalse rather than undefined.   
%       \languagename now initiated for mlp.
%       \fr@addto replaced by LaTeX macro.
%       {pm}french.cfg now loaded if any.                         --bg 97/11/24
%       Allow \everyparguillemets to end in a inner environnement but 
%         then \endguillemets should be used in the valid environnement.
%         Notice \endguillemets ends the group correctly, before
%         that the group remains open.                            --bg 97/12/04
%       Original \parindent now saved and restored.               --bg 97/12/05
%       \seealso didn't generate |see in the .idx file, due to...
%         History says: "\subsee no more protected by \string V3,47".
%         Protection now reestablished.                           --bg 97/12/18

% This version 4,02 is now released.                              --bg 97/12/18
