Summary description:  Babel contributed support for French

Announcement text:

 Update for LuaTeX 0.95 and XeTeX 0.99996 as included in TeXLive 2016.

 Note to Lua(La)TeX users: the lua code included in frenchb.lua v.~3.2b
 will not work on older installations (TL2015 f.i.), so babel-french
 reverts to active characters while handling high punctuation with
 LuaTeX engines older than 0.95!

 Xe(La)TeX and pdf(La)TeX users can safely use babelfrench v.~3.2b on
 older installations too.
