Has anyone managed to get French hyphenation working?
My books are in mobi6 format (not KF8), and I have double-checked to be sure the language is identified correctly (French - Standard).
In the JBPatch log file, I do see the following lines:
I: Loading Hyphenations for language ID 1036 (fr)
java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: java.lang.Character: method valueOf(C)Ljava/lang/Character; not found
Sorry, my Java skills are non-existent... If anyone has a clue how to get this working, I would be very appreciative!
Argh... this is a bug in the patch, thanks for pointing it out.
The problem is that the (hyphenation) source is backported from Java 5, and the Character.valueOf() method doesn't exist in Java 1.4.2 (but Eclipse wouldn't tell me so because I had it configured wrong
Anyway, this should be fixed with version 2012-08-02. Please re-download the patch and let me know if it fixes the problem.
